MEATliquor has announced that it is closing the doors on its original W1 site as the brand looks to continue expanding within the UK.
W1 began with a two-year lease and, after five and a half years of trading, will close as the building is being demolished to make way for a luxury hotel.
With the closing date still unconfirmed, W1 will remain open on a month-by-month basis.
“We are shutting the doors of W1 as a heart-breaking necessity,” says MEATliquor co-founder and managing director Scott Collins.
“We continue to invest in the steady growth and expansion of MEATliquor in the UK.
“Having originally taken over that site from a failed Italian restaurant in an area with no footfall and very little trade, we are so proud to have grown W1 into a site that has been the bedrock of the MEATliquor business.”
MEATliquor most recently opened in Queensway and is due to launch its Kings Cross site in August.
