Chicagos to return to Stourbridge

First published in News

UP to 25 new jobs will be created when pub brand Chicagos returns to Stourbridge later this year.

The old Chicago Rock Cafe bowed out of the town in 2010 after its owners 3DE went into administration - and JD Wetherspoon took on the High Street venue, renaming it the Chequers Inn.

But Atmosphere Bars and Clubs, which now owns the renamed Chicagos brand, has taken on the large empty unit on the corner of the Ryemarket shopping centre and the High Street - to bring the late night party venue back to Stourbridge.

A £500,000 makeover of the vacant unit, formerly occupied by Que Pasa, is now underway and the new Chicagos venue is due to open in September.

Business development manager Jamie Whittingham said the company has received more than 250 applications for the 25 jobs on offer which will range from bar staff to supervisors to cloakroom staff and cleaners.

He said: “So many people are so looking forward to us coming back.”

The deadline for job applications was this week and staff will be appointed in the next few weeks.
