The bar, which was in use when the hotel first opened in 1967 but closed 25 years ago, is being brought back to life by Christopher Nevile and his sister Lady Elizabeth Arnold who bought the hotel a few years ago.
Mr Nevile said: “Lincoln is a beautiful city and has a lot of trendy bars for young people and traditional pubs but there aren’t any wine bars aimed at the slightly older professional market which is why we decided to open Bar 67.
“As well as the décor having a 60s/70s feel there are lots of cosy seating areas where people can sit in comfy chairs and chat without having to shout over the music. But it still feels quite modern in a retro kind of way!”
The bar’s new manager Adrian Gray was formerly the Duty Manager at the hotel and says he’s looking forward to opening the doors of Bar 67 to the public for the second time!
“Lincoln has been missing a wine bar so I think Bar 67 is exactly what the city needs,” said Adrian.
“We’re also planning to host live mic, comedy and jazz nights which will help to establish it as a prime venue in the city and attract people of all ages who want to enjoy a sociable drink in pleasant surrounds.”
Over 50 different wines will be in stock at the bar – choices, choices – as well bottled beers and spirits and customers will be able to buy a virtual bottle of wine which consists of six glasses of wine so they can mix and match rather than having to buy a bottle of red or a bottle of white.
Meat, fish and cheese platters will also be available for those who like a bit of a nibble with their drink.
Although the official date has yet to be confirmed the hotel plans to open the bar between 5pm and midnight Tuesday to Saturday.
