Vince Power, the founder of Mean Fiddler, has set up the Vince Power Music Group to launch a new bar and club group. Power, who sold his remaining 35% stake in Mean Fiddler this year for £13m to Clear Channel Entertainment, is reported to have acquired Spiga, a restaurant in Soho, which he will reopen with a basement nightclub called Camouflage. A lounge bar, called 10 West, is due to open in London next month, on the site of the former Ion bar in Ladbroke Grove. A restaurant and live music venue called Pigalle is also in the pipeline, for the Piccadilly area of London. The property will have a capacity of 350 and a 4am licence. Power is also said to be aiming to expand into Europe, with music venues in Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and Valencia and festivals in Eastern Europe. While at Mean Fiddler Power had ambitions towards Europe for the group’s Jazz Café brand which were never realised. Mean Fiddler operates 30 venues in the UK and has stakes in the Glastonbury, Leeds and Reading festivals.
