Underground bar at Jesus

Abby Watson 18 January 2017

On Tuesday 17 January the recent opening of the new underground bar at Jesus, known as the Brewery Room, was celebrated by a Kaleidoscope-themed bop.

Codeko, who performed at Electric Zoo festival in New York City in 2016, was DJ for the event.  

The basement bar is part of the new West Court development, the “topping out” ceremony for which was held on 11 January.

The Master, Professor Ian White, laid the final stone on the roof parapet wall.

This marks the end of a project which began in 2014. Other features include a lecture hall, a dedicated events space, and a cafe with a terrace, as well as a projector for film nights. There will also be 30 hotel-standard bedrooms, which will be available throughout the year.

Professor White commented: “We are delighted that the chance has arisen to restore the college site to its original boundaries and excited by the opportunity it brings to take the facilities we can offer to students, fellows, alumni and the wider world to a new level of excellence.”
