CG Restaurants (CGR) has acquired a second site for its Dirty Martini bar concept in London’s Hanover Square. The company, which also operates the Fire & Stone chain, has taken the lease on the former Chopper Lump run by Davy’s at St James’s in Mayfair. Earlier this year, M&C Report revealed that CGR was to return to the acquisition trail over the next year as its looks to add to its five-strong Fire & Stone pizza chain and open further bar operations. Hugh Fowler, managing director of CGR, said: “Dirty Martini’s sophisticated night cocktail bar for the post-work, pre-club crowd has proven so successful at our existing premises at Covent Garden Piazza that we felt it was time to accelerate our expansion. “The concept is focussed on key areas that have a vibrant work force and are close to some of London’s best nightlife. The London bar market is currently very much affiliated with luxurious surroundings inspired by New York.” CGR also operates the Tuttons Brasserie, which serves modern European cuisine in Covent Garden. Property advisor Davis Coffer Lyons handled the lease assignment for the new Dry Martini bar, which will occupy a 2,700sq ft premises at 10 Hanover Square.
