Shepherd Market Holdings, represented by international real estate advisor Savills, has let 2 – 4 Shepherd Street in Mayfair, London to ITALIANS CLUBHOUSE LTD. The privately owned Italian operator plans to create a new public restaurant and private members club at the property.
Unlike other concepts, which often focus on wealth and status, Italians Clubhouse aim to give space to art and design lovers, foodies and people looking for a place where they can still connect and share their passions in true Italian style. The club’s concept will please even the fussiest members by creating in three of the most wanted London locations, bespoke look and feel for each postcode.
The operator, which is currently launching similar venues in Notting Hill and Shoreditch, will develop an Italian wine bar managed by the award-winning Vini Italiani plus a ground floor restaurant and an invitation only members club on the first floor. The second floor will feature gaming facilities, private dining options, a barber, tailor and spirits lounge.
Matteo Cerri, CEO of i2i, commented: “We are extremely excited about this latest venue which we wish to transform in our group’s ‘gem’. ITALIANS CLUBHOUSE aims to be a place where you can fully immerge yourself in the quality of an Italian lifestyle, whether for a business meeting or for relaxing. It is a place where our successful format #EatDrinkLoveItalian can be enjoyed everyday.”
Oliver Green, director in the Central London retail team at Savills, comments: “Shepherd Market has a rapidly growing reputation as an established hub for high quality, independent restaurants, clubs, retail stores and art galleries in Mayfair. This new venue will complement the existing retail and leisure mix well, and we are now working with our client to let the final two available units.”
