Supermild has announced it will be officially re-launching on Friday, June 3rd.
The venue has moved down the road to 73a Hindley Street, with an opening party set to kick things off at the new location, which encompasses three different levels and a kitchen.
The news comes after the late-night venue, in operation for over fifteen years at its previous address, was unable to extend its lease and had to close down last year.
In a struggle to raise funds to help cover operating costs and open at its new location, owner and operator Sam Lisy launched a GoFundMe campaign to overcome opening uncertainties.
The campaign included full money-back rewards once the venue re-opened for punters that donated — options included drink cards, gift vouchers, and even a 2-hour karaoke and pizza package.
After finding unexpected support from suppliers, Lisy has since taken down the GoFundMe page.
"Things have taken a rather interesting turn and it looks like things are going to be just fine!" Lisy told us.
The bar's iconic basement will look almost identical to the former hangout, through a recreated dance-floor
“The main floor will be where the new comes in. There’s outdoor seating and upstairs we’ll have decking, sofas and the old ‘loungey’ bit of Supermild,” Lisy told Broadsheet last month.
Where: Supermild, 73a Hindley Street
