Soho House Group is to introduce its Fox Bar concept into the UK later this year in London’s Brixton, MCA has learnt.
The group currently operates one site under the “late-night drinking joint” format” within its Chicken & Farm Shop unit in Chicago.
It is set to open a further site under the concept at the Piano House scheme on Brighton Terrace in Brixton this September, and hasn’t ruled out launching further Fox Bars in the UK.
The concepts menu in Chicago features “locally inspired cocktails and small bites”. The interiors give a nod to vintage British sporting culture, whilst a rotating cast of DJ’s and vinyl library provide the music
The group, which opened a Dirty Burger in Coldharbourlane earlier this year, will also open a Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger at the Piano House scheme later this year.
It has been converting some of its sites and opening new ones under to a joint Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger offer.
In April last year, the company secured a £15m revolving credit facility from RBS to fund its next phase of expansion.
The company said it is planning to add 10 to 15 sites a year to its portfolio and that the funding would support the expansion of Pizza East, Dirty Burger and in particular Chicken Shop.
It also operates Chicken Shops in Barcelona and Chicago.
