“Prendre un verre à la Mirotirie – sera bientôt possible”
Willi’s will be closing for enlargement on the 14th JULY. Soon the hole in the wall that for for 30 odd years has been Willi’s will be no more.
To those people who stood outside shaking their heads in uncomprehending bewilderment, wearing expressions that said ‘is this ReallY it ?!” I will soon be able to reply, “well no, Willi’s is , as you would imagine, huge…”
No Ball Room like Macéo, but there will be a ‘Magnum Room’, a ‘Willi Boutique’, a ‘Salon Grand Willi’ – to mention just a few of the parts involved in this project.
For as long as Willi’s has been in existence, I have patiently waited to take over the space currently called ‘L’Ancien Maison Jam’ which has been a ‘mirotirie’, or fittingly, glass shop next door.
Our neighbour has decided to retire. Not a minute too soon, mon ami. In fact, had he mentioned the fact before our remodeling just over two years ago, it would have been moderately helpful…
Having waited all this time I am hopeful that I will avoid the complications encountered by my friends Daniel Rose & Juan Sanchez, who became bogged down in endless complications when respectively fitting out their new restaurants.
It is never easy dealing with a whole host of movable, susceptible independent spirits & parameters, but the plan as it stands today involves work starting on the extension on June 1st, the boutiques being joined on July 14th & reopening as the new place in town on August 1st – just when everyone goes on holiday !
