Nightcap has reported that all 19 of its bars are open and trading across London, Bristol and Birmingham, at 92% of turnover compared to the equivalent weeks in 2019.

When compared on a like for like basis, during the three weeks from 17 May to 6 June 2021, the bars are trading at 53% growth.

The sales performance since re-opening is “significantly ahead” of the board’s expectations, due to restricted capacity and social distancing requirements.

For the same period, The London Cocktail Club saw revenues grow by 83% when compared the same weeks in 2019, representing a 69% growth of revenues on a like for like basis.

Nightcap’s latest acquisition, Adventure Bar Group, saw revenue growth of 96% compared to 2019, a growth of 46% on a like for like basis, including an all-time weekly sales record in excess of £520,000 across its nine bars.

The two most recently opened venues, Luna Springs and Tonight Josephine in Birmingham, are said to have performed particular well.

Nightcap is looking at a number of sites that are currently in legal negotiations across several of its brands.

The company said: “Whilst we look forward to all Covid-related restrictions being lifted on 21 June 2021, in line with the government’s previous guidance and the bars being able to trade to their full potential, we now have confidence that all sites will continue to trade well even if the current capacity restrictions remain in place.”
