2016 is looking fantastic for the area -if looking at the last few months of 2015 are anything to go by!
We have had the opening of the amazing Canvas loft bar which has brought another area of cool sophistication back to life at the top of Poole Hill (opp Koh Thai) Starting late January, they will now be having “Live at Canvas” Via Britox T.V and video program aiming to showcase many quality emerging bands and artists! Who would have thought this only a few months earlier?? Since opening in November, they have already brought James Morrison, Paul Weller and James Taylor quartet to the stage!
Canvas, with other smaller venues such as The Winchester and Smokin Aces to name but a few, have helped establish The Triangle as the rising premier area for a wide & diverse spectrum of live entertainment in Bournemouth, and indeed, for that matter- the South coast.
To quote “Bournemouth news & info” on the net: THE TRIANGLE REVIVAL CONTINUES!
Southbourne Ales are looking to open directly below Canvas and bring back to life a space that has been boarded up for the last 15 years, as early as possibly May!
We have Ojo Rojo, the new Mexican Tapas Restaurant due to be opened early spring, the scaffolding is down and all is progressing well. Opening in the former Oswald Baily building that had remained empty for the last several years, by J.J Adams of Smokin Aces fame- a few yards up the road, also in The Triangle.
Work is progressing well on the former Branksome with what will be the New Brewhouse kitchen & Micro Brewery. The diggers have been in and cleared the back for a new large cellar and upper floors now being built. This will vastly open up the two floors and enlarge! Due to open again later this year.
Sunrise Organics have opened on St Michael’s road in a shop (opp Treehouse Family Play) that has remained empty since it was built several years ago as with Sun Monkey also opening at the tail end of 2015, directly on The Triangle in a shop that once again had been closed for a number of years.
We have now had the opening of The Hilton Hotel(s) just a stones throw from The Triangle and it will be great to see what influence it has on the area in terms of new investment and foot fall. We love the sky bar and believe (as with all the new housing / flats being built in the area) it will bring clients a little up the hill directly into the heart of the Triangle area. An area which month on month continues to be an expanding, increasingly vibrant, quirky hub for dining, live music, arts & night life. Making The Triangle, Bournemouth – truly A Better Place.
VIVA LA TRIANGLE – BOURNEMOUTH!
