Victoria St Albans

Extensive Refurbishment - Transformational works will reposition The Victoria from a small, outdated pub into a premium space, set apart from its competitors as the best sports viewing venue in St Albans. Inside, the bar servery will be relocated to open up the trade area, which will feature TV's showing sports throughout. It will be decorated with an attractive mix of exposed, industrial-style furnishings, vibrant botanical prints and neon signs. Major external works, including a large outdoor screen, covered booths with individual TV's and an outdoor bar, will also give the venue major appeal for sporting events as well as throughout the rest of the year. The works will combine to create a truly standout venue in the area, with an up-tempo atmosphere and thriving customer base.

Excellent Location - The Victoria is located in an ideal location on a busy crossroads between St Albans town centre and the train station, ensuring it receives a high level of footfall throughout the year. St Albans itself is an incredibly affluent area, with a population consisting predominantly of young professionals, who earn above average incomes and are looking to socialise in a lively, premium venue.

Great Potential - This vibrant rebrand will breathe new life into The Victoria, giving it the ability to trade at all points of the day and capitalise on large, lucrative sporting events. With TV's embedded in the back bar and throughout the trade area, as well as a large outdoor screen and in individual garden booths, sporting events and high-energy occasions will be at the heart of The Victoria. A casual, trendy food offer will create multiple income streams and the updated contemporary design will ensure a vibrant atmosphere, all firmly establishing the pub as the go-to venue in St Albans.
