The brand acquired the site at 211-217 Deansgate, Manchester from Bruntwood Estates Ltd. The group plans to invest £1.5m in the conversion of the 6,700 sq ft three floor retail and office space.
Scott Matthews, Chief Executive Officer at Dirty Martini, said “We are excited about opening our first site outside London in the North, in Manchester. Our recent expansion in Cardiff has been a huge success, and as a result we are progressing with our national expansion strategy with confidence.”
CG Restaurants & Bars has taken the brand from a 1,200 square foot basement in Covent Garden to a nine strong group and the Manchester site will become the 10th site in its portfolio.
The expansion builds upon the recent success of Dirty Martini Cardiff, which has exceeded budgeted sales by 10.2%. The site also reported generating over 12,000 pre-booked covers since opening late October.
The bar group currently operates nine sites across the UK in Bishopsgate, Clapham, Covent Garden, Hanover Square, Islington, Monument, St Paul’s, Minories and Cardiff.
