A BAR in Colchester has announced it will be reopening with a different theme after a temporary closure.

Hudson House at 19 Head Street in Colchester is set to open as a new kitchen, sports bar and social co-working space.

Hudson House previously had a tropical oasis theme with a gin library on the first floor and resident DJs.

The site was also home to Peruvian and Latin American Inca Restaurant, which aimed to combine flavours “with a contemporary twist”.

The bar is managed by the Elysium Group, which also runs the popular Mimosa in The Business Park. in The Crescent, in Highwoods, and Pavilion at 20-21 Middleborough, Colchester.

The bar area in Hudson House was previously refurbished in 2019 to offer bottomless pizza and a smokehouse and grill.

It was later refurbished in 2020 to offer a botanical-inspired bar with floral-printed chairs and foliage-adorned walls.

The opening date of the new Hudson House sports bar is yet to be confirmed, with bosses promising the site “where sports meets social” will be “coming soon”.

The Elysium Group has been contacted for more information.
