A trio of new sites, including Revolution’s sixth bar in London, will increase the bar group’s portfolio to 72 locations across the UK and create approximately 180 new jobs.

New Revolution bars in Solihull, Inverness and Putney, are set to open in time for Christmas – offering entertainment, bespoke party packages and drinks masterclasses in time for the festive season.

The first launch – Revolution Solihull opening on 1 December – will be the group’s 11th site in the Midlands. The 86-cover bar will be within walking distance of the High Street and will feature a ground-floor bar and dining area as well as a drinks terrace.

Revolution Bars will also add to its Scottish portfolio before Christmas with the Inverness launch – its sixth north of the border. Using a converted McEwans department store site, the new bar will feature contrasting architectural styles from the 1960s and 19th century across two floors.

Finally, the Putney site, also opening its doors on 20 December, is set to be the group’s sixth bar in London and will occupy the site of a former Victorian Hotel. A three-storey, 120-cover bar, will include a revamped, spacious ground floor area – capitalising on what was a large, ground floor restaurant area – as well as a second floor mezzanine level to extend bar and dining space further. The third floor will house a roof terrace and bar as well as private function rooms.

Revolution Bars Group commercial director Myles Doran commented: “The property team has worked tirelessly to secure these fantastic venues in high footfall locations and we are confident they will perform well.

“With three openings planned before Christmas, and in quick succession, we are able to capitalise on the key festive trading period. We continue to grow, fuelled by consumer appetite for quality bars and restaurants that deliver a premium proposition and look forward to welcoming and training nearly 200 new members to the team.”
