Dover Street Restaurant and Bar sold to Russian chain Novikov

Well-known West End bar Dover Street Restaurant and Bar has closed after being sold to a Russian restaurant chain.

The site has reportedly been bought by chain group Novikov, for a lease of more than £1m, according to the London Evening Standard. It is not yet known when or if the group plans to open the site.

The London newspaper reported that a notice on the wine bar door stated: "It is with deep regret that Dover Street Restaurant and Bar has officially closed, following the passing of its owner in July…thank you for your custom…and for all the great times that we have shared together in this very special place."

The wine bar has been in operation for over 35 years, and often attracted celebrity clientele. It also regularly played live music.
