Casual dining venture Coppa Club is set to open two new sites in Berkshire and Brighton this summer.
The first will launch in July 2019 at part of the £12m refurbishment of the 47-bedroom the Swan at Streatley hotel overlooking the River Thames, with the second opening in Brighton in August.
The 220-cover Brighton site, which is going ahead following planning delays last year, will include a year-round alfresco dining area within Brighton Square incorporating the city's iconic dolphin fountain.
The two new outlets will join existing Coppa Clubs in Berkshire (Sonning and Maidenhead); Henley on Thames, Oxfordshire; and London (St Paul's and Tower Bridge).
Owned by Various Eateries headed by Hugh Osmond, Coppa Club aims to offer a private members club experience "without the membership fees or snobbery". Customers can stay all day and move between the lounge areas, private dining rooms, central bar and restaurant.
Sue Walter, chief executive of Various Eateries, said: "Despite the challenges and uncertainty in our sector, there remains one constant: people want to feel a sense of belonging and connection. We work hard to understand and integrate into our local communities; this along with our focus on delivering the best possible guest experience is what makes Coppa Club so special.
"Our community-first mindset sits at the heart of our expansion plans, and we are working with a number of local residents and businesses in each
location as well as recruiting locally, to evolve and grow in line with the needs of our communities."
Coppa Club achieved like-for-like sales increase of 8.9% from January to March this year.
