Riverside bar and club Oracle may be better known for its nights out but it’s hoping to add something new to the menu.

The venue at Brewery Wharf will mark its 11th birthday with a makeover and a kitchen takeover.

The ground floor will be rebranded as The Kitchen, which will play host to a number of guest street food vendors throughout spring and summer, with Fat Annie’s Hot Dog kicking things off on March 24.

Partner Deborah De Vittoris said: “Customers enjoy seeking out great food – social media has turned what’s on a plate into something that they want to tell their friends they are experiencing live whilst they eat it.

“In this new fast-moving environment one menu that has seasonal changes is not enough. That’s why we’re bringing our hand-picked selection of street food operators to The Kitchen at Oracle and allowing our customers to try different dishes inspired from around the world.”

Other street food vendors getting involved include Twisted Fish, The Mexican Guy, The Hog and Bottle and Humpit.

The site is also undergoing a refurbishment, with reclaimed wood being added to the white, minimalistic interior to give it a warmer, more rustic vibe.

From March 26, the bar will also launch its ‘Bubbles and Brunch’ offering, with DJs, a main meal and bottomless prosecco for £20 from 12pm to 2pm every Saturday and Sunday.

With so much competition these days, it’s good to see this stalwart mixing things up.
