Atmosphere Bars and Clubs, the 26-strong nightclub operator backed by Sun Capital Partners, has sold Gregory’s nightclub in Nantwich, Cheshire, to local operator Chester Bars for an undisclosed sum. The transaction, which includes an assignment of a sublease to Chester Bars, was completed Friday. Chester Bars will continue trading the venue under the Gregory’s name, Atmosphere said. It comes as Atmosphere Bars & Clubs, which is led by Paul Harbottle, looks to rollout its Chicago Rock brand via franchise to 50 sites within the next three years. Harbottle told M&C Report in September that it has already signed up its first franchisee: Perry Deakin, former chief executive of Port Vale Football Club, which was placed in administration earlier this year.
