One of York’s biggest bars is to undergo a major redevelopment and will reopen under a new name, to secure its long-term future.
The owners of The Graduate in Lendal plan to relaunch it as The Old Bank. The firm has submitted planning application to City of York Council, revealing the new look.
The application submitted to the council is for new signs, and redecoration of the outside of the building.
The application documents say the change would support the “economic wellbeing” of the business and say the changes will “help ensure that it is worthy of being frequented for many more years to come”.
The Graduate opened in 2011, in the building that had previously been Varsity.
