Hamilton’s newest bar, The Fox & Ferret, opens its doors on Thursday 27th October with a launch party featuring live music from Fury and the Ambassadors before rolling onto Halloween weekend with a Saturday night Halloween party with fabulous prizes for the best-dressed revellers.
Located at 9 Townhead Street, on the site of the former Amigo’s Bar and Restaurant, the Fox & Ferret will be bringing something new to the town in its serving of a quality food and drink offering at reasonable prices.
A spokesman for Glasgow-based The Urban Pub Company, owner of The Fox & Ferret, said: “We’re delighted to launch the first ever Fox & Ferret in Hamilton to bring a refreshing new quality hospitality offering to the town.
“We’re confident that The Fox & Ferret will appeal equally to young couples, affording them a degree of privacy, as well as a bunch of guys out for a few beers, girls out to enjoy a glass of fizz as well as larger parties of friends out to celebrate a special occasion over a meal and a refreshment.
“Hamilton has, until now, suffered from neglect by major licensed operators, and we are confident that The Fox & Ferret will give locals the quality of licensed offering the town has so desperately needed.”
The opening of The Fox & Ferret marks the first stage of an expansion strategy recently announced by The Urban Pub Company aimed at opening up a string of new outlets all based on the concept of serving a quality food and drink offering at reasonable prices in locations neglected by major licensed operators. It will be followed closely by The Dog & Duck in Cambuslang and the Rat & Parrot in Bishopbriggs over the coming weeks.
The Urban Pub Company operates a number of licensed premises throughout the Central Belt, including: The Lincoln Inn, on Glasgow’s Great Western Road; 1901 on Pollokshaws Road; The Wise Monkey, Great Western Road and The Scotch and Rye in Summerston. It also manages a number of outlets on behalf of various pubcos and independent operators. This management side of the business has flourished in the last six months, adding six outlets to a burgeoning portfolio.
