The brothers had a spectacular fall out in 2009 which caused the band to split up. They have had hardly any contact since other than exchanging a few text messages after their beloved Manchester City won the Premier League.

However, time is a great healer and when the pair met up at a family wedding in Ireland they were able to bury the hatchet. They are now ready to open a family business with Peggy in their home city of Manchester.

An insider close to the pair told the Daily Star: “Liam initially came up with the idea after a recent trip to Manchester with his mum Peggy.

“Then between them they thought Noel should also be brought on board.

“The brothers are thinking about an indie rock-themed place which serves artisan food.”

Singer Liam has already proved to be a successful businessman. He has built up his Pretty Green clothing line and has opened up several stores in city centres across the UK.

The bar is likely to be named ‘Champagne Supernova’ after the closing track of their classic 1995 album ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’.

The brothers have both managed to maintain their musical success since the band split. Songwriter Noel released a critically acclaimed solo album while Liam formed a new band, Beady Eye, with the other members of Oasis.

Beady Eye have released two critically acclaimed albums to date and have surprised some people with the standard of song writing they have achieved without Noel.

However, many people believe this could be the first steps towards an Oasis reunion.

Former guitarist Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs said: “If someone said, ‘Here’s a field, here’s a stage and here’s 200,000 people,’ I’m sure Liam would jump up and do it, and I don’t think it would even take anyone offering him a massive bankroll of money. He’d do it because that’s what he loves, that’s his passion.”
