The team behind popular south London bars Venn Street Records and Northcote Road Records are heading north of the river to open a site in Shoreditch.
For their third “Records” venue, Rocket Leisure has taken over the premises of Tex-Mex restaurant Café El Paso (pictured) in Old Street, paying a “large premium”.
Venn Street Records in Clapham was opened by Tom Jackman, Russell Taylor and Howard Taylor in 2010, combining a dive bar feel with contemporary design, food, cocktails and live music.
Its success led them to open Northcote Road Records in Battersea in 2013. They are also looking to open a fourth site in 2016.
