Thu 6th Jul 2017 - Ei Group managed joint venture Marmalade Pub Company lines up first three sites
Ei Group managed joint venture Marmalade Pub Company lines up first three sites: Marmalade Pub Company, the managed investments partnership between Ei Group and The Marylebone Leisure Group, has lined up its first three sites. Its first venue, the Compton Cross, will open in Soho this summer. The venue, currently known as Molly Moggs, will temporarily close for refurbishment work and reopen as a “stylish and vibrant” bar that will serve home-infused spirits and cocktails alongside a range of craft beers. Marmalade Pub Company will take on a second site this summer in London’s Portobello Road, Notting Hill. The Portobello Star will also undergo a significant refurbishment before opening its doors, while The Crown and Treaty in Uxbridge is lined up as its third venue due to open this autumn. Co-founder of Marylebone Leisure Group and Marmalade Pub Company, Lawrence Santi, said: “Soho is an incredibly vibrant area of London and we are so excited to be launching our first venue there. Molly Moggs has traditionally been positioned as an LGBT+ venue and we fully recognise the importance of this status for local people. As such we’ve been working closely with London’s night tsar, Amy Lamé, to ensure the Compton Cross continues to be a fully inclusive and welcoming venue for all members of the local community and visitors to the area. As with all Marmalade Pub Company sites, the back-bar will be made up almost entirely of our own spirits and liqueurs, with cocktails made by our fully-trained team of mixologists, so we’re bringing something different to Soho.” Ei managed investments operations director Nathan Wall said: “We are delighted to have found some fantastic venues for The Marmalade Pub Company set to open this year, the first of which being The Compton Cross. Our Soho site is the oldest pub in the area having opened in 1731. During that time it’s seen many different guises and has been known as Molly Moggs since 1996. We’d like to thank experienced publican Jimmy McGrath and his team for temporarily running the venue as the much-loved Molly Moggs while we prepare for refurbishment works that will take the pub in a new direction, but one that will continue to embrace all the local diversity and culture of Soho.”
