My Night At Foundry Project, Harrogate.

Sunday, 7 May 2017

The Foundry Project is located in The Ginnel, Harrogate, opposite The Pit, next door to Ginnel Pub and just around the corner from All Bar One. (also new!) With Jamie’s Italian located at the top of the road; Foundry is perfectly located for your next night out.

Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to the Press Night for Foundry Project. It is described as “the happiest place in Harrogate” and with a DJ playing tunes and staff serving you sharing platters on black boards; all whilst you sit back in wooden benches sipping upon one of their new style cocktails it is easy to see why. Bohemian styling with industrial luxe add to the foundry factory aesthetic.

With industrial looking interiors, exposed copper piping, comfy couches and cozy booths for serious gossiping; the design scheme perfectly encaspulates foundry factory theming. The outside itself is bright, with light coloured bricks, juxtaposed against the darkness of the seating and entrance way. It definitely catches your eye as you walk past and invites you to look inside with the promise of a weekend bottomless brunch and a Bloody Mary Creation Station!

The main bar sits on the lower level and stretches the whole width, perfect for showcasing 3 large copper tanks. White tiles contrast against the dark flooring, perfectly matched with the Chesterfield-style sofas, banquettes and traditional dining settings.

Foundry Project was built by Concorde BGW which also built the new 5ive Guys, located on Parliament St, Harrogate. Funnily enough, during Opening Night last week, I got chatting to Danny and Pete who worked for Concorde! Really great guys who provided me with insight into the building of Foundry and other bars as well as some laughs! They should be proud because Foundry is an asset to Harrogate’s thriving bar scene and after work crowd, girly catch ups and civilised morning meetings will never be the same again!

Foundry Project is on the frontline of the experimental cocktail scene, with creations such as the Beetroot Margarita, Carrot and Orange Margarita and smoking cocktails there is set to be something to tickle your tastebuds and tempt you to try something new. Their food offerings will consist of sourdough pizzas, burgers and sharing platters alongside some of the tastiest desserts I have ever had. (FYI their brownie is to die for!) Their bottomless brunch is not to be missed, featuring delights such as granola, yogurt and fruit, pancakes with all the trimmings and of course, avocado on toast! With unlimited cocktails and Prosecco from only £15 per head, why not make Foundry Project your next destination?!

My favourite cocktail, of all the ones I had the chance to sample, was definitely the Violet Reviver. The glass was rimmed with crushed Parma Violet sweets, making it the perfect drink should you be a fan of those little purple sweets like me!!

I would highly recommend Foundry Project as a place to meet friends, for a night out or as a place to come back to life on a Sunday afternoon. It is perfect and their food is ah-mazing! Never had garlic doughballs like it, liked deep fried pickles as much nor fallen so hard for a dessert. I will definitely, definitely be back and will not stop recommending it! Please please be sure to pop in when you're next in town you will be sure to love it just as I do! 

Big big thanks to Foundry for inviting me along for both Pres Night and Opening Night. As you can see I had a brilliant time!! Xoxo
