Flooded, But Not All Washed Up
The iconic Motor House building on Skeldergate Bridge has been given a new lease of life and the team at Dyls bar are reopening this week with a brand-new, flood-proof, renovated space.
After months of renovations, the team are all set to reopen on Sunday 16th July to welcome people to join them in raising a glass to the future and having a nosey around the hidden rooms and uncover the exciting
new features of the bar!
The interior of the bar is based on a mixture of modern, urban and Scandinavian influences whilst playing homage to the original features of the historic building.
Working with local suppliers the team have unveiled that they will be serving a range of local food and drinks, including local bottled beers from Ainsty Ales & other local breweries, coffee from York Coffee Emporium and meat from M&K Butchers, to name a few.
As a small independent business, Dyls strongly supports other local businesses and will continuously be welcoming other potential local collaborations.
Dyls opened 6 years ago as a family business. Unfortunately, over the years due to the location on the river Ouse the venue suffered three major floods resulting in big setbacks and a 6 month closure each time!
In 2016 after the worst flood, a temporary outdoor bar was setup which allowed them to continue business whilst working on plans to move forward and resolve the problems once and for all! Dyls has now been closed in its true form for over 16 months but the end is in sight and they are set to reopen bigger and better than ever and fully flood proof!
This time round they will be opening as a kitchen and bar, and with the newly implemented flood proofing it means the bar will be able to immediately open after any flooding and cater for many more people all year round, inside and out!
