It's finally upon us: Tomorrow morning at 11am we're opening for the first time as V Rev on Edge Street.
It's been a lonely month without our customers whilst we've been moving over from V Revolution round the corner, and it's been fraught with stress. Our contractors have completely ghosted us at this point (we haven't seen or heard from them in days), so the premises are a bit rough round the edges in places because there's still a long list of things they've yet to do, but we can't wait any longer: We just have to share with you everything we've been working on.
Our solid crew of 9 from Oldham Street has grown to a team of 23, working double the hours, making everything from scratch, and prepping a completely new bar and bakery. The fit-out running a month over schedule (and still ongoing... we hope?!) has meant however that we've only had access to the kitchen since the end of last week, and have had a grand total of four days to get to grips with the till system. We've had a little run through of the menu tonight for some friends which went super well, but we've still never worked a "proper shift" together before, we've never worked in this space before, and we've never operated at this level before. We're determined to blow your minds and fill your tummies, but we're still figuring out the best way to do this.
With that in mind, if you have any observations about things we're doing that you love, or suggestions on things you think we could do better we'd love to hear from you, either in person or by e-mail, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
We hope to see you tomorrow!
