Tom and Katie Ogden are teaming up to transform a derelict space in Stockport into a speakeasy-style bar.

The Blossoms frontman and his salon owner wife have snapped up a building on Lower Hillgate that will soon be the home of Bohemian Arts Club.

Sprawling across three floors, there’ll be an intimate cocktail bar on the first and second floors, with a hidden entrance off the cobbled street of Coopers Brow.

Bohemian Arts Club will have a hair salon on the ground floor that will be the second site for Hazel Grove brand Bohemian, manned by a highly-experienced style and colour team.

The run-down building is undergoing a huge renovation, with the couple taking inspiration from speakeasies they’ve encountered while touring the world.


Tom told The Manc: “We’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible bars all over the world and it was always a dream of ours to open our own.

“When we found this charming little venue in our hometown of Stockport we knew we’d found a gem.


“It’s been a long process renovating the venue but we’re getting there and in 2023 we’ll be opening the doors and look forward to welcoming everyone in for a drink or two.”

The news comes just days after Blossoms wrapped up their UK tour, which included four massive shows at the O2 Apollo in Manchester.

The Stockport-formed group chose to screen the World Cup quarter-final inside the venue, soothing all the broken hearts with a lively set and a surprise appearance from Miles Kane.


Blossoms also stunned fans last week by popping up at the legendary Night & Day Cafe for an intimate set at the Co-op Live’s countdown party.

Bohemian Arts Club is set to open in Stockport in early 2023 – you can visit or follow @bohemianartsclub on Instagram for updates.
