AN update has been given on plans to reopen a town centre bar following an unexpected closure.

Newton’s Bar in Time Square closed without warning in August alongside its sister unit Gravity.

The venues, which only opened in October 2021 and October 2020 respectively, are linked and share the same owner.

It comes after fixtures and fittings were ripped out of the Gravity unit within the leisure precinct in August, as well as Newton’s bar and restaurant.

Photos taken of the Gravity unit showed the removal of trampolines and the ‘Ninja Run’ obstacle course fixtures.

The same could be said of Newton’s, with bar fittings, tables and booth seating also absent.

Newton’s restaurant and bar offered an interactive and social venue, including darts and pool in a games area, serving cocktails alongside a New York themed menu.

Gravity meanwhile was a kid’s paradise, with 70 interconnected trampolines on the ground floor, as well as a giant inflatable obstacle course upstairs.

Gravity has now reopened however, and the company has also issued an update on what was formerly Newton’s.

A Gravity spokesman said: “Newton’s will be updated to Gravity Social Warrington.

“This will be a new and exciting food and drink option alongside some excellent activities for day-into-evening entertainment.

“It will be similar to Gravity Social Northampton, which is already up and running.

“More information and opening dates for Gravity Social Warrington will be coming soon.”

Popular active entertainment centre Gravity welcomed back customers on Wednesday, offering more than 30,000square-feet of entertainment.

This includes 70 interconnected trampolines and a daredevil inflatable obstacle course that has been fully refurbished, ready for kids and adults to indulge in some family-friendly, adrenaline-fuelled fun.

Harvey Jenkinson, co-founder and CEO at Gravity, said: “We are thrilled to be reopening Gravity Warrington and cannot wait to welcome back local visitors.

“We know there is no better feeling than bouncing through the air on our extreme trampolines, and the team is so excited to see everyone back in action.

“The site has been treated to a full refurb as Warrington is an important location for Gravity, and we look forward to becoming an integral part of the local community once again.”
