Following a £1.3million investment, The Box is set to open its doors in the autumn of 2018, creating 50 full and part-time jobs for the local area. The impressive new Leeds bar will host 150 covers and span over 8000 sq. ft. across two floors and will be located in the vibrant financial district.
Speaking of the acquisition Martin Wolstencroft, CEO of Arc Inspirations, commented: “We are thrilled to announce the evolution of our long-standing and most successful concept, The Box. Looking to Leeds city centre for the second location, we’ve taken the elements our customers love about what we do and worked to broaden its appeal, beyond a place as a firm favourite for students, to an inner city local for day and nights out, for residents, workers and visitors to the city. We’ll feature an amazing range of craft beers, draught cocktails, accompanied by authentic Mexican street food, experiential games and live sport screens. A unique screening and tap room will provide a great space for private gatherings or corporate events.”
“We brought Nik Lowery on as our new Property Director in February and this is his first acquisition for us – and with a quick turnaround. He saw the success of our Headingley venue and increased demand for the brand and seized an opportunity to branch The Box out across the North of England.
“The brand will add another great choice of where to go out in the city and complement Manahatta and Banyan, our popular outlets we operate nearby.”
