Costello’s Time Square: A well deserved expansion

Costello's Bar Times Square Warrington featuring bespoke EPOS from Haven Systems

Costello’s new Time Square bar is the latest impressive venue to open in Warrington’s new flagship development. 

Time Square in the heart of Warrington Town Centre, is attracting prestigious bars, restaurants, and retail operations to what has been described as a destination for food and fun fans from the North West. The new venue is a neat addition to the growing Costello’s Bar brand with existing well-established and highly popular bars in Altrincham and Stockton Heath.  

The relaxed, friendly atmosphere that Costello’s Bars provide is no doubt one reason for their continued success. However, the award-winning real ale from local breweries is most certainly another reason that the group has built up a significant and loyal following. The bars highlight ales from both Lymm Brewing Company and Dunham Massey Brewing Company. Ales such as Cheshire IPA, Little Bollington, Lymm Bitter or Bridgewater Blonde are enjoyed by many for far more than their local references. Multi-award winning beers, brewed just up the road!  

There is also a broad selection of lagers, spirits, and high-quality wines. 

Alongside the new Warrington Market, The Cookhouse and the flagship Cinema, Costello’s Time Square brings a unique feel as well as some of the best local beers to the town centre. 

Anthony Costello, business owner, said “We are excited to be opening our new bar in Time Square and look forward to welcoming many new customers as well as those who have already enjoyed our great tasting beers, wines and spirits.” 

Costello’s new bar looks fantastic and fits right in with a traditional vibe yet is modern and functional. There has been a great willingness to use existing and local suppliers where possible. 

It was a natural choice to use Haven Systems EPOS and expand the existing solution in the Altrincham and Stockton Heath bars. At the same time, migrating the back-office system to be cloud hosted will help the management team to become even more efficient as the estate has grown. The pos software is central to the operation and allows the team to manage products and prices and to create detailed sales analysis. 

With a local office base in Stockton Heath, Haven are ideally located and have provided excellent on and off-site support and maintenance to the existing Costello’s sites since their opening. 

Tim Richards, Haven Systems Sales Director commented “the new bar looks fantastic and will no doubt prove to be a popular venue within the Warrington Town Centre development.” 

The latest touch screen tills, a new concept in epos hardware from Aures Technologies provide a design conscious, as well as a fast and efficient means of handling orders and payments. Aures is a globally recognised pos manufacturer with an enviable reputation for both design and reliability, who’s UK base just happens to be in Cheshire too.
