A reinvention in Prestwick

BUZZWORKS Holdings, the Ayrshire-based multiple operator, has unveiled plans to completely redevelop one of its flagship venues.

Buzzworks has operated bar and restaurant Elliots in Prestwick for 16 years. The venue was closed on Sunday, January 27 and will now be extensively refurbished before reopening as Vic’s & The Vine before Easter.

The transformed venue will comprise two main spaces: bar area Vic’s, which will feature tank beer and open until 2.30am on weekends; and 150-cover restaurant The Vine, which will have a dedicated private dining room for 24 guests.

Buzzworks managing director, Kenny Blair, said the goal of the project is to “create the best day to night venue in Scotland”.

“It’s essential to evolve within the hospitality industry and look at innovative ways to create new and exciting concepts for our customers,” said Blair.

“It’s an exciting time for the company as this major refurbishment gets underway.

“In recent years we have launched venues outside of Ayrshire, namely The Coach House in Bridge of Weir and Scotts South Queensferry – but we’ve never lost sight of our roots by strategically investing in our existing venues. Our work to reincarnate Elliots is part of our wider growth strategy, both benefiting the local community and Scotland’s hospitality industry.”

Buzzworks operators eleven venues in Ayrshire, Bridge of Weir and South Queensferry.
