Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake's sports bar set for St Andrews


Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods have been granted planning permission to convert an old cinema in St Andrews into a sports bar.

T-Squared Social will turn the New Picture House Cinema into a luxury bar with sports simulators, duckpin bowling and darts, while retaining two cinema screens.

Fife Council said that the application from real estate company Nexus Luxury Collection - which Woods and Timberlake are shareholders in - would "protect and enhance the character and appearance of the conservation area."

Around 40 to 45 jobs will be created as a result of the redevelopment.

In planning documents the cinema's owners, who have welcomed the bar proposal, stated they would have to close the New Picture House if there was no change to the site, as it "currently runs at under 10 per cent occupancy and is no longer a viable stand-alone cinema operation."
