Duke Street mixes business with pleasure as first bottle shop bar comes to busy Darlington street

A Darlington couples dream of opening Duke street’s very first bottle shop bar and off-licence becomes reality as Angels Cut is dubbed as Darlington’s very own “Jewel in the Crown.”

Angels Cut which opened its doors in the spring of this year aims to bring a hint of nostalgia to Darlington Town centre with its 1920’s inspired decor and it is the first of its kind in the local area.

The bars’ owners are Les and Kendra Fry who also own the popular Voodoo Cafe on Skinnergate. Kendra said: “It’s always been a dream of ours to open a bottle bar in the town centre. Duke Street is the perfect location for us as the street continues to grow in popularity”

The couples exciting new venture means the first bar on Duke Street has something for everyone, with its selection of spirits, craft ales, ciders and soft drinks.

A variety of spirits including whisky and tequila from regional and national distilleries are stocked in the bar including a range of 13 craft ales and a wider range of bottled beers.

The bar also doubles up as an off licence, stocking an impressive selection of bottled spirits and wines, perfect for an extra special treat. A vast majority of what’s in stock is also not available on the supermarket shelves.  

Aiming to make Duke Street a more social and vibrant area of town, in the near future the bar aims to introduce food. In the meantime the bar hosts tasting evenings, past events have included a Wine and Cheese night and vodka tasting sessions.
