Manchester’s premier entertainment and gaming destination, Manchester235, is to relaunch its Fusion bar under the new name of Vega Lounge when it reopens to the public at the end of the month.

“The rebranding of Fusion to Vega Lounge – it’s engaging, exciting and immediately resonates with the glamour of Vegas…”

The second brightest star in the northern hemisphere, the name Vega has been chosen for its strong links to bright lights, Las Vegas and the North. The refurbished and rebranded bar, which will continue to operate as one of Manchester’s only late night bars, will encapsulate all the glitz and glamour of the Vegas strip, with a new look and food and drink menu.

A temporary bar has been put in place to replace Fusion while the works are underway. Everything else within the casino will remain open for business as normal.

Bar consultants Escapade have been brought in to work with the team on some new drink concepts. New cocktails include; The Vault, in which a cocktail will be presented in a modified safe with a working lock, TNT explosives on the side and lit sparklers, Shots Roulette, in which shot glasses come in a mini roulette wheel and Poker Face, where the cocktail is presented on mirrored place mat/ coaster with large tulip glass and an ace of spades playing card.

Justin Carter, Venue Director at Manchester235, said; “We’re extremely excited to announce the rebranding of Fusion to Vega Lounge. We believe this name reflects everything the bar represents – it’s engaging, exciting and immediately resonates with the glamour of Vegas. As one of the only late night venues in the city, we believe we have created a bar that people will want to spend time in, regardless of whether they are coming to gamble or not.”

Open 24/7, Manchester235 Casino gives the city a unique party destination featuring lavish décor, the stunning contemporary restaurant, a chic cocktail bar, a luxurious multi-use private event suite, a spacious poker lounge and a multitude of gaming facilities including Poker, Blackjack, Roulette, Slots and Punto Banco.
