March 2019: After a budgeting shortfall, Gary Usher launched a crowdfund for £100k to finish off Kala, starting March 11.

Harden's says

Never a man to stand still, Gary Usher opened the sixth outpost of his growing, crowd-funded north western empire in the heart of the city-centre; the venue will be open from breakfast onwards, and incorporate a 70-cover restaurant, plus a bar set out 'Barrafina-style' where up to 15 people can eat. Rather than feeling rustic, the site is a massive glass-fronted building with polished floors, with marble and lots of black to suit the glass feel.

Summary

Never a man to stand still, Gary Usher will open the sixth outpost of his growing, crowd-funded north western empire in the heart of the city-centre. Opening in February 2019, the venue will be open from breakfast onwards, and incorporate a 70-cover restaurant, plus a bar set out ‘Barrafina-style’ where up to 15 people can eat. Rather than feeling rustic, the site is apparently a massive glass-fronted building with polished floors, hence Usher plans to use marble and lots of black to suit the glass feel.
