Mothership Group buys the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen

Bar and events operator Mothership Group has acquired the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen in East London.

The group, which has an annual turnover of £10m, declined to reveal how much it had spent on the venue, but said it planned to make some changes to the interior over the coming months and would continue to host live music on-site.

The company plays host to more than 1,000 events a year across its portfolio of venues, which also includes east London sites the Book Club, Queen of Hoxton and Stories, and Brighton seafront venue Patterns.

Commercial director of the Mothership Group, Jon Ross, said: "We've been huge fans of the Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen for many years. It's a great bar in a world-famous square and we're really excited about taking it on. It has an amazing history with some of the best bands on today's scene having broken there and we're looking forward to continuing and adding to that story."

Adam Taylor, live music programmer at the Hoxton Bar & Kitchen, said it was exciting to work with the group, and that it would continue to build on the venue's reputation.
