Inventive Leisure, the Revolution Vodka Bar operator, has secured a third site for its standalone Revolucion de Cuba rum bar concept as it nears agreement on further acquisitions. The company has acquired the lease on a 7,559 sq ft site in Greyfriars Road in central Cardiff, held at a passing rent of £134,500 pa. Colliers International handled the acquisition. The site will become Inventive’s third dedicated Revolucion de Cuba site; it currently runs nine ‘dual’ venues that feature a Revolucion de Cuba room. Inventive Leisure chief executive Roy Ellis told M&C Report: “We are quite close to signing another one, which we think will be open in the summer; that’s a pure Revolucion de Cuba. And we are quite close on a couple or three sites that will probably be dual brands. “We are looking at lots of sites all the time. We’ve probably got 12 serious sites that we are at various stages on.” He said there are figures in mind for openings this year. The firm currently operates 66 sites and earlier this month Ellis told Publican’s Morning Advertiser, sister title to M&C Report, that the number in mind for the company is 120. Commenting on Inventive’s Cardiff acquisition, Ross Kirton, director at Colliers International, said: “Whilst wet-lead circuit bars in the city are finding trade struggling, we have noticed an increase in demand from premium branded occupiers seeking representation in the city.”
