Leisure operator CG Restaurants & Bars has announced a 16.4% increase in like-for-like December sales at its London bar group, Dirty Martini.
This increase was driven by a 35% increase in pre-booked business across the month, which represented a final 61% of overall sales. The brand's original site, in London's Covent Garden, also saw the group's strongest ever sales on New Year's Eve 2015.
The group opened two new sites last year, including in Clapham and Islington in London, and now also has sites in Bishopsgate, Hanover Square, Monument and St Paul's. It is seeking new acquisitions across 2016.
Scott Matthews, chief executive at Dirty Martini, said: "We're delighted to announce an outstanding performance for Dirty Martini over the December period.
"Our new sites are outperforming expectations and our original Dirty Martini in Covent Garden continues to deliver excellent growth every year."
CG Restaurants also owns the Covent Garden sites Tuttons and Fire & Stone.
