Redcomb Pubs has revealed plans to relaunch its Alphabet concept in Upper Street, Islington.
The company, run by Dan Shotton and Mark Draper, first launched Alphabet in Beak Street, Soho, with the ambition of creating a “new generation of urban bars”, appealing to the area’s media and creative crowds.
The concept will relaunch in August, following a £600,000 renovation of the site, including a 100-cover restaurant offering a menu focused on sharing dishes. The space will also include a 50-cover roof terrace and bar.
Commenting on the launch of Alphabet Islington, Mark Draper, executive director of Redcomb Pubs, said: “Alphabet Islington is a fast-moving and exciting new addition to Redcomb’s Urban Social portfolio of venues. Alongside our successful pub and bar operations, we see this new division as a key opportunity for growth, further expanding our presence across central London through the introduction of a range of independent social drinking and dining venues that centre on the neighbourhoods and audiences that they serve.
“This marks an exciting new chapter for us. Not only does it offer us the opportunity to take up residence in one of London’s most bustling neighbourhoods, but it also provides the chance to introduce a rejuvenated Alphabet offering to a new audience and generation.”
