This Month in Premier Hospitality 7.7
Welcome to the latest edition of Premier Hospitality.
In this month’s issue we take a look at TAKA; we highlight the expansion of The Alchemist; and we put GF Holding in the spotlight.
Centred on offering high end Japanese food in a chic location at affordable prices, TAKA is a new concept from restauranteur Andrey Datsenko and his sister Anastasia. TAKA takes inspiration from Andrey and Anastasia’s debut restaurant in Tokyo and offers an authentic Japanese dining experience within a contemporary setting. Ideal for a working lunch or social dinner, TAKA can be found in the increasingly thriving Shepherd Market in Mayfair at the centre of London’s burgeoning food scene. Set over two floors, the first is occupied by the restaurant while the lower ground floor houses an intimate bar. Designed by Object Space Place, TAKA is a contemporary, well-considered space based on simple, warm materials, which make for strong design aesthetics.
Meanwhile, established in 2010, The Alchemist has grown rapidly from a staple of the Manchester hospitality scene to an evolving national brand. The premium bar and casual dining operator has built its reputation on creating the ultimate cocktails, blending the perfect presentation with sensational settings for immersive drinking and dining experiences. The last few years have seen rapid growth for the brand and by the end of 2017 The Alchemist will have added further sites to its portfolio including Newcastle, Chester, MediaCityUK in Salford, Oxford and early next year, Nottingham.
And finally, with over one hundred years’ experience, GF Holding is one of the UK’s leading specialist building and fit out contractors offering a range of services to clients primarily in the finance, leisure and heritage sectors. In this issue, Premier Hospitality catches up with Managing Director Jeff Barton to ask him a few questions about the company.
With all this and more it’s time to sit back and tuck into another helping of Premier Hospitality.
