A HARD ACT TO FOLLOW…
Just a short drive from the Ribble Valley is a bar and kitchen that has more than a touch of theatre about it
When you first step into Alexander’s Bar & Kitchen you could be forgiven for thinking you have been transported to another time. Featuring a dramatic entrance of Edwardian tiled splendour, this luxury bar and kitchen at the top of Skipton’s famous High Street, transforms from continental grand café and retro inspired restaurant during the day, to a lively night time venue, where guests revel in fantastic food, drink and its ultimate speciality, live entertainment.
Alexander’s is the brainchild of businesswoman Susannah Daley, who is behind the multi-million pound revival of the Grade II listed building. Susannah heads up The Peel Entertainment Group, a live and digital entertainment provider to cruise lines, museums, hotels and private clients – not surprising then that Alexander’s oozes all the genuine style and drama of a bygone era.
In summer panoramic bi-fold doors open onto large heated terraces, creating a seamless transition from inside to outside where, on selected nights, singers and musicians entertain. At the height of summer Alexander’s hosts its stunning Tropical White Party – with a luxury barbecue on the lantern-lit terrace and chilled Ibiza music from a top DJ – this is a sell-out event so book early!
In winter Alexander’s takes guests ‘Off Piste’ to an Alpine themed ‘Secret Escape’. Guests can quite literally enjoy a smorgasbord of fondues, cured fish and ‘après ski’ drinks inside its enchanting fully heated ‘log cabin’ under the stars!
Entertainment at Alexander’s always has a liberal sprinkling of magic. It is slick and ultimately professional – look out for ‘Gin and Jazz’ evenings with one of the UK’s top jazz and boogie woogie performers, Tom Seals on his baby grand. Upstairs The Lawrence, an elegant private dining room, hosts monthly Grand Tour Supper Clubs which transport guests to destinations around the globe uncovering their fine cuisine, art and culture. With picturesque views over the Parish Church Green, The Lawrence is also an exquisite setting for weddings and special occasions.
Alexander’s is the perfect place whatever the time of day – for breakfast with the family (technology at Alexander’s converts Little Explorers’ drawings into animated 3D augmented reality on its in-house iPads) or a much-needed brunch, morning coffee or a delightful luxury afternoon tea. Moving seamlessly into the evening, linger over cocktails in the bar with friends as the sun goes down for a memorable evening of great food and lavish entertainment.
