Knutsford in Cheshire will soon have its own slice of the Big Apple when New Moon Co opens The Bronx Bar & Pizzetteria in November.
With a “cool laid-back vibe”, the bar will offer a New York-style “gritty, edgy” cocktail menu complemented by a food offering focused on small pizzas, or “pizzettas”.
It will be the eighth site for New Moon Co, headed by Paul Newman and chef patron David Mooney, who opened The Old Blind School in Liverpool in June. They also operate Knutsford’s award-winning gastropub The Old Sessions House.
The Bronx Bar & Pizzetteria on Princess Street is being designed by DV8 Designs and will have a laid-back, intimate and industrial “down and dirty feel”.
Paul said: “Our sister restaurant, The Old Sessions House, is three years old and one of our biggest issues is the place isn’t big enough.
“Knutsford has always been about food – now it can be a little about wet stuff rather than just solids: a cool alternative to our customers’ nights. Right up the street.”
The Bronx Bar & Pizzetteria will open towards the end of November. David added: “Sh!t-hot cocktails and dead-small pizzas in a cool place your grandmother wouldn’t be seen dead at – we can not wait to open our doors.”
Established in 2011, New Moon Co also operates The Lord Binning in Kelsall in Cheshire, Casa Matta Pizzeria in Weaverham in Cheshire, The Mockingbird Taproom in Chester, The Montgomery in Eastham in Merseyside, and Beef & Pudding in Manchester.
