Revere to roll out cocktail bar concept and unveil new brand

Foundry 39 Edinburgh

Pub and bar operator Revere is to open two more sites for its cocktail bar The Lost & Found in Leeds and Cheshire and debut a new concept in Edinburgh.

After the success of The Lost & Found that opened in Birmingham nearly four years ago, two more sites are set to be opened in Greek Street in Leeds in August and Knutsford in Cheshire in September.

Revere, the premium arm of pub company and brewer Marston’s, is also set to open the first of a new brand under the banner of Foundry Project.

Pictured above as a computer-generated image, Foundry 39 is due to open in Queensferry Street in Edinburgh’s West End this month. It will be followed by a second Foundry site in an undisclosed location before the end of this year.

The namesake of its former factory days, Foundry Project will offer artisan products with a focus on innovative cocktails, craft beers, specialty coffee, sourdough pizzas, and flavoursome burgers.

Foundry Project sites will emulate the foundry and factory aesthetic through industrial-inspired décor, with walls featuring a mix of distressed timber and aged metal wall cladding.

Both of the new sites for The Lost & Found will be set across two floors, again with a design based on a Victorian botanical hideaway. The drinks menu will revive classic cocktails from the past, with in-house infused spirits and bitters, served alongside sourdough pizzas and Josper-cooked steaks.

Colin Sadler, managing director of Revere, said: “We are delighted to have expanded The Lost & Found following the huge success of Birmingham, and are excited to launch the new Foundry Project under the Revere umbrella with these four new sites.

“We are in discussions on further locations and believe 2016/2017 will be a transformational year for Revere.”

Its other bars and pubs include The Fire Station in London’s Waterloo, Locke & Remedy in Cardiff, The Florentine in Sheffield, The Angel & Blue Pig in Lymington in Hampshire, and The Libertine in Westbourne, Bournemouth.
