Mysabar has confirmed it is returning to the city centre next month for a 12-week run. 

The bar will reopen in mid-October beneath the twinkling lights of Norwich Castle.  

The venue ran successfully in the Lower Castle Gardens for a three-month period over the summer, finishing in early September.

The general idea offered last winter - great food and drink in a warm and cosy environment - remains the same. 

But some things have changed, as although the team are staying at the same site they want to make the most of the panoramic views in the upper garden as Christmas approaches.  

The centrepiece of the event will always be the food and drink and this is not set to change.

The bar was founded by Rumsey Wells landlords Dan Searle and Katie Herring, alongside Seth Maclot and Chris Howard of Lunar Stretch Tents.

Seth said: “The idea is we want to keep things fresh and evolving with the seasons and working with local designers Smoke and Wild Wood allows us to be really creative with design." 

The bar sits within the wider Mysagarden, which the venue rebranded with this summer.

Chris added: “The space has been totally redesigned to keep things fresh and huge amounts of work have gone into ‘weatherproofing’ the site where possible.

"The tents have been reconfigured, new floors have been laid and we have plenty of heaters to keep things cosy."

The team confirmed they will once again be bringing on a range of craft beers from across the country, rotated on a weekly basis, alongside a carefully curated wine list and some incredibly exciting new local food vendors.  

“We have worked really hard on trying to bring some of the best food to the experience we can from local traders and restaurants.  

"We love the idea of being a launch pad for new food ideas for Norwich and so we will be doing as much of that as possible,” added Dan.
