The Lost & Found
Premium arm of Marston’s, Revere, has announced that their original The Lost & Found site in Birmingham has been refurbished and two new sites have opened in Bristol and Leeds.
The Birmingham location closed on 2nd January 2018 for two months of pampering, as ordered by mythical ruler, Professor Hettie G. Watson.
Building on its former glory, housed in the Grade II listed building on Bennetts Hill, the decadent drinking den has been beautifully transformed, featuring a new mezzanine bar reached only via a spiral staircase to apothecary heaven, and a striking raised feature pergola. The hidden bar has been given a top-secret entrance makeover, whilst stunning design elements include antique mirrors, brass and steel detailing and statement plant installations, staying true to Hettie G. Watson’s passion for all things botanical.
At The Lost & Found, resident mixologists expertly shake and stir a selection of carefully crafted concoctions, mixed and muddled using only the freshest ingredients, homemade bitters and infused spirits. A two-part cocktail menu will remedy those feeling ‘lost’ or ‘found’ and for the less daring, an enticing list of premium spirits, craft beer and an extensive wine range featuring old and new world favourites is available.
Food is taken just as seriously with a new menu full of flavour, made using seasonal produce, all cooked to perfection. Sensational starters tease the taste buds while mains take centre stage. Those looking for a quick bite can opt for a hand-finished pizza in the brand new pizza oven and with the weekend made for brunching, diners can enjoy the likes of Turkish eggs or brown butter pancakes. Finally for a more leisurely afternoon, bite-sized sandwiches and desserts with a selection of flowing tea are also on offer.
Professor Hettie G. Watson officially re-opened The Lost & Found Birmingham on Friday 2 March.
Following the success of venues in Birmingham, Leeds and Knutsford, and having witnessed the hospitality boom in Bristol, Revere has selected this location to further grow the brand.
The new site follows The Lost & Found signature theme with designs based on Victorian botanical hideaways, catering for all occasions from intimate celebrations to business events. The drinks menu revives classic cocktails from days gone by, made with in-house infused spirits and bitters, as well as signature cocktails created in the name of fictional professors who ‘oversee’ each bar location. Drinks are served alongside a menu including hand-finished pizzas and Josper-grilled steaks.
The Bristol site is overseen by Elizabeth E. Lightfoot, a mythical professor of astronomy who offers guests an insight into her celestial secrets with a menu of exciting cocktails.
Work on the sites was undertaken by Concorde Design who specialise in the design, build and furnishing of projects all over the country. Concorde Design was founded in and has been trading for over 25 years. They still stands by their traditional values of care and craftsmanship – a culture that has seen their business flourish with teams in London and Yorkshire, united by an unwavering commitment to creativity and quality.
Taking influence from the mysterious traditions of alchemic practices, the arrival of bar and restaurant The Lost & Found Leeds Club will push the boundaries of discovery. Showing a love for libations, ingredients are shaken, smoked, foamed, fizzed and distilled to stir the imagination.
At the helm on Albion Place, mythical Professor Benedict Pink, who specialises in chemistry and is the inspiration beyond the avant-garde all –day venue invites guests to visit the well-laden bar to sample the strange and wonderful concoctions and to feat in the opulent dining room.
Managing Director of Revere, Colin Sadler said: “We are delighted to be expanding the Lost & Found brand and building on our success as a destination venue.”
