London-based Italian restaurant and private members club operator, i2i, has secured a site in Mayfair for its Italians Clubhouse concept.
The group, which is also in the process of opening similar venues in Notting Hill and Shoreditch, has secured 2 - 4 Shepherd Street through Savils.
The group will develop an Italian wine bar managed by Vini Italiani plus a ground floor restaurant and an invitation only members club on the first floor. The second floor will feature gaming facilities, private dining options, a barber, tailor and spirits lounge.
Matteo Cerri, chief executive of i2i, said: “We are extremely excited about this latest venue which we wish to transform into our group’s ‘gem’. ITALIANS CLUBHOUSE aims to be a place where you can fully immerge yourself in the quality of an Italian lifestyle, whether for a business meeting or for relaxing. It is a place where our successful format #EatDrinkLoveItalian can be enjoyed every day.”
Oliver Green, director in the Central London retail team at Savills, said: “Shepherd Market has a rapidly growing reputation as an established hub for high quality, independent restaurants, clubs, retail stores and art galleries in Mayfair. This new venue will complement the existing retail and leisure mix well, and we are now working with our client to let the final two available units.”
