Some surprise news today with the announcement that JD Wetherspoons has opened its first shopping centre based venue. And it’s local. They have spent £995,000 in transforming the former Dexter’s Bar & Grill into The Mardi Gras.
And where is it? The Trafford Centre. Yes, that monstrosity that no sane person willingly sets foot in. Over inflated shop prices and not one decent drinking establishment hardly motivates one to do. However, this could all change with the arrival of the Mardi Gras. It will also be interesting to see how this affects the business of their Castle in the Air which is next door to the Trafford Centre.
Full review to follow.
