Kuckoo, Knutsford Press Event – Cocktail Bar Review

Kuckoo Cocktail Bar Review, Knutsford by Jennifer Lam

What Was The Press Event?

Today I am writing about my first ever Press Event at Kuckoo in my local area, which was SO EXCITING! I was exclusively invited to a new bar in the little town of Knutsford in Cheshire, UK. It was the first cocktail bar of its kind to be opened in Knutsford, which made it a very unique bar! I don’t live in Knutsford, but I do live about a 30-minute drive away, which made it very easy to get to.

The venue was lovely enough to allow me to invite my friends to be my plus one’s to the bar. The event was the day before my 21st birthday, so the celebrations commenced on this evening! We were very fortunate to be able to sample many of their incredible cocktails on the menu. My favourite has to be Kuckoo Kolada, because I’m a sucker for a Piña Colada when I get the chance. It was even served in a coconut!

As well as the drinks flowing all evening, they had fantastic canapés and tapas-style dishes to sample.

What is Kuckoo All About?

It is a stylish bar that is solely dedicated to their unique cocktail menu. They do have a wine menu and draft beer menu too! The bartending team at Kuckoo are all professionally trained in cocktail-making to provide the best cocktails in town! The staff showed a true passion for their jobs and their customer service was next level! I have never been to a bar quite like this one before!

“The staff were always up for a joke! The attention to detail by the staff definitely exceeded all expectations.”

The whole two-floor venue just boasts a very classy vibe. The ‘Onyx’ style bar immediately catches your eye, as the bar top and fascias are backlit in a warm red colour. The seating areas are a beautiful velvet material that makes it very comfortable to sit in all night to catch up with friends or co-workers. It’s such a beautiful bar that you could definitely take your love-interests on a date here, as the red gives a romantic illusion. Me and my boyfriend have already spoken about returning to this bar!

The bar primarily has a playlist of rock and roll music from every era to create a laid-back vibe and a place to relax and de-stress after a long day.

The venue is so up-to-date that they have installed the wireless-charging port tables. If your device doesn’t yet support the wireless, magnetic charging, you can collect an adaptor behind the bar that will allow you to charge your phone using the port. Because, let’s face it, there is nothing worse than running out of battery on a night out in town!

I Don’t Live Near Knutsford, But Do They Have Any Other Bars?

If you don’t live near Knutsford, don’t fear! You can find another Kuckoo bar in Chester, Sheffield and Preston! All of these bars are owned by Richard Powell, who is the owner and founder of the Kuckoo chain. His success began when he opened his first bar in Preston during 2010. The Chester bar was opened in 2013 and the Sheffield bar was opened earlier in 2017.

Can I See A Visual?

Today is your lucky day! I put together a little compilation of clips from my experience at the bar. In the short video, I tried to capture the vibe of the bar, so that you feel like you’re immersed in the experience yourself!

What Was Your Verdict?

All in all, I had a fantastic time at Kuckoo, and I wanted to say a massive thank you to Helen & Richard for inviting me! I will definitely stop by at the other Kuckoo bars if I ever visit the other locations. If you want a chilled out atmosphere, this bar is definitely for you!
