Beverley’s hotly anticipated new restaurant and bar, FIREPIT Smokehouse & Sports Bar launches next week.
The £1m venue opens to the public at noon on Friday, July 21, following a VIP party for 100 invited guests the night before, when the entertainment will include hot stuff from fire-eaters.
A ground floor unit at the Flemingate Centre has been transformed into a US-style smokehouse and sports bar.
With a distinctive Americana theme and menu, using an in-house smoker and wood-burning grill, the venue has a Deep South flavour.

Vivid neon signage, old American classic car parts and a show-stopping custom-built Airstream-style aluminium caravan, made in Beverley to create a cool private dining booth, has created a distinctive look.
The venue has been created by the company behind the town’s popular Potting Shed Bar and Gardens, Flemingate.
Allan Harper, CEO of Potting Shed Trading Ltd, said: “Since we launched the Potting Shed in Beverley in August last year, we’ve become familiar with our customers here and we’ve got an understanding of what they like.
“We opened our first FIREPIT in Bingley, alongside a Potting Shed, and the two have complemented each other so well, we were confident it was the right decision for Beverley too.

“We put a lot of time, effort and thought into creating our concept bars and restaurants and we’re sure customers coming into the FIREPIT will be impressed with what they find.
“There are lots of little American hidden gems added by our design team which they can discover and we’ve created a smokehouse menu which we hope they’ll enjoy trying out.”
The venue will be open from noon until late, including 2am on weekends.
Diners can choose from a selection of authentic dishes, including four-hour smoked ribs and two-hour smoked chicken, finished over charcoal and topped with the venue's signature sauces and mayos.
There will also be also flame or charcoal grilled steaks, sandwiches and speciality burgers such as beef brisket and smoked pulled pork.
The sports bar, which will serve a range of house cocktails beers and spirits, will have the big match action on HD TVs and a giant 4m x 2m LED screen.
Customers will also be able to play shuffleboard, darts and pool and join in regular themed nights.
