Mechu restaurant, bar and late lounge in Birmingham is to get a £1m refurbishment to include a bar/grill and VIP club lounge.
Owners Keith Williams and Mark Jones have shut Mechu and will re-open it on September 1, rebranding the whole building as Mechu and losing the Mix Brasserie. Williams said, "We will be streamlining the existing ground floor units, formerly Mechu bar and Mix Brasserie… With exposed brick work, flaming candles and deep purple timber flooring it will be reminiscent of a New York grill with masses of design character and ambient seating." Upstairs will become a sixties designed private VIP club lounge.
Mechu was launched in 2002 as part of the Summerrow development.
