London-based bar and restaurant group, Urban Leisure Group (ULG) has announced it is to open its 10th site.
The company, whose venues include Soho’s Graphic Bar (pictured above), says it is due to open a new pizza and cocktail venue at the former La Brocca in West Hampstead by early 2016. Founder Hezi Yechiel says the company will also open three more venues in 2015 and early 2016. Coin Laundry, due to launch mid-November, will bring 1970s inspired cuisine and cocktails to Exmouth Market while Heist Bank, due to launch in January 2016 in Paddington, will serve wood-fired pizza and local beer, and sell fresh flowers to locals and nearby businesses. A further proposed site in south-west London may see ULG venture across the river, and take the total estate to 11.
Yechiel said: 'ULG continues to grow from strength to strength and we are really excited about our forthcoming openings. They are all exciting, will all bring something different to London’s vibrant eating and drinking scene and we can’t wait to launch the projects, some of which have been months in the making.'
