Two more cocktail bars are to be opened under the name of The Lost & Found as part of further investment in the concept.

Revere, the premium arm of pub company and brewer Marston’s, is to open its fourth location for the brand in Leeds – its second in the city after opening in Greek Street in 2016.

Due to open to the public from February 16, The Lost & Found’s new Leeds Club will be in Albion Place, restoring a Grade II-listed Victorian building, and will feature a bar, restaurant, private “boardroom” and secret drinking den.

Revere will then open a new site in Bristol in April as well as unveil a refurbishment of its Birmingham bar in March – the original site for The Lost & Found in 2012. It opened the third site for the concept in Knutsford, Cheshire, in 2016.

The new sites will follow The Lost & Found’s signature theme with designs based on Victorian botanical hideaways, catering for different occasions from intimate celebrations to business events.

The drinks menu will revive classic cocktails, 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. The new Leeds Club will be overseen by Professor Benedict Pike.

Drinks will be served alongside a food menu including hand-finished pizzas and Josper-grilled steaks.

Colin Sadler, managing director of Revere, said: “We are delighted to be expanding The Lost & Found brand and building on our success as a destination venue.

“Leeds is thriving with young professionals who are a key demographic for us, and with Bristol recently being named best city to live in the UK – thus drawing in many new people to the area – we are sure the new sites will be perfect for our growth strategy.”
