Buzzworks Holdings, the Scottish hospitality group, is opening a pub in Ayr next to its restaurant Tree House on Sandgate.

T-Bar will have a large focus on live music, and is described as casual pub with a modern twist, serving a range of beers, cocktails and stone-baked pizzas.

Kenny Blair, managing director at Buzzworks Holdings said: “The hospitality industry is constantly evolving and we saw an opportunity to create a cool and modern pub with a twist, which would both suit the local market and sit alongside our excellent restaurant offering at the Tree House.

“Although connected to the Tree House, we are keen for the T-Bar to be recognised in its own right and look forward to welcoming both Buzzworks regulars and new visitors to our latest venture.”

The bar will also have its own multi-purpose events space that can be booked out for special occasions as well as an indoor courtyard area featuring art from Scottish artists.
