Yorkshire-based restaurant and bar operator Arc Inspirations has secured a site in Ilkley, West Yorkshire, to open a new Banyan Bar & Kitchen.
Arc has acquired the lease from European restaurant Wildwood, with plans underway to rejuvenate the 5,000 sq ft site into the company's seventh Banyan Bar & Kitchen, following sites in Harrogate, Horsforth, Roundhay, Manchester (pictured), York and Leeds.
Its doors are set to open in late October 2017, with the new bar and restaurant extending over two floors.
Established in 1999, Arc Inspirations has a portfolio of 15 bars in the North of England across brands including Manahatta, the Pit, Trio, the Box and Kith & Kin. This year so far the group has seen the opening of Manahatta in Leeds, and the appointment of new managing director Anni Opong, and has further openings in the pipeline.
