UP TO 75 jobs will be created when the former Pals brasserie in Ipswich is re-opened as a vodka and rum bar, it has been revealed.

The venue, opposite the Old Cattle Market, has undergone a �1.4million refurbishment ahead of its official opening on September 16 under its new identity of ”Revolution”.

The bar and restaurant – designed to cater for more than 1,000 customers – will be one of the chain’s largest operations.

“The new rum concept broadens our appeal and we hope it will prove a big hit, particularly with business customers.

“We’re also delighted that the �1.4m development has enabled us to create 75 new jobs in the area.”
