A recently refurbished Plymouth pub has unveiled an eye-catching mural as part of its new look. The roundabout, located in Plymouth town centre, has been completely covered in vibrant street art, created by a popular South West artist.
While the interior of the pub is also brand new, the fresh coat of paint on the North Hill and Charles Street base is eye-catching. The mural was done in spray paint, by Harriet Wood of HazardOne, and features a bright blue background and a myriad of colorful flowers.
The full refurbishment took just under a month and the pub only recently reopened. Following an investment of £350,000, the interior and exterior have been completely redesigned to provide a fresher, more ‘homely’ feel.
The Roundabout has also partnered with Pogo Events, with funding from Arts Council England, to help bring more live music events to the city. The venue has since announced a wide variety of upcoming music nights at the pub, with nu-jazz soul band Binbag Wisdom playing on September 16 and ska band, Mr Tea and the Minions at the end of the month.
Since the pub reopened on August 26, the exterior has been redecorated with artwork by HazardOne, a Bristol-based street artist who has spray painted his way around the world, with work in the UK United, on the Arizona-Mexico border and on the 79th floor of the three World Trade Centers in New York.
Speaking on the reopening, the pub’s general manager, Richard Smith, said: ‘It’s great to be back with our new look and outdoor space, and we’ve been as busy as we have been since the doors reopened . In addition to our popular student nights and weekend events, we are looking to bring more and more entertainment to the pub, making The Roundabout the perfect place for nightlife in the city.
Richard has been working at the Rond-point for nearly nine years. As well as running the pub, he volunteers for the national Pubwatch and chairs the local Plymouth Pubwatch. Pubwatch works with businesses locally and nationally to support and create a safer, crime-free drinking environment.
The pub was closed from July 21st during the redesign – everything from the floor to the sound system to the menu changed in the month the establishment was closed. There are three floors in The Roundabout with plenty of seating, and with 17 TVs dotted around the venue, no one will struggle to watch both Sky and BT Sports.
Other entertainment comes from the popular pub Parties on the terrace events, and the upcoming Freshman Welcome Party on Friday, September 23, as well as other regular nights with live bands and DJs. The bar offers quality beers, wines and spirits, including a new six-tap cider wall, a six-tap craft beer wall and also a fabulous range of cocktails, which are currently on offer two-for-one. The Roundabout has also launched a Gin Lab, where customers can mix and match their favorite G&T combos and experiment with new flavors.
