Microbar to open on outskirts of Wigan


Plans to transform a former ice-cream cafe into a microbar on the outskirts of Wigan town centre have been green-lit by councillors.

Proposals for 57 Kenyon Road, which will see the now-vacant building turned into a upmarket cafe and bar. The site was previously home to “Will and Joe’s” cafe, which closed after just two months of trading due to a spate of burglaries and arson attacks. Four local businessmen will embark upon the new enterprise, including Phil Cox – co-owner of the Wily Fox Brewery. The bar, named “Sherrington’s” after the hardware store which used to occupy the site, will include a small outdoor seating terrace to the front of the building.
