Second Barrafina set for Covent Garden’s Dury Lane

43 Drury Lane
Restaurateur brothers Sam and Eddie Hart have acquired the former restaurant lease of Italian restaurant Sapori at 43 Drury Lane, Covent Garden WC2 for their second Barrafina Spanish Tapas restaurant.

The brothers whose first Barrafina is in Soho, also own Spanish favourite Fino in Fitzrovia and stylish British restaurant Quo Vadis in Soho. Barrafina took an assignment of the existing 20 year lease and also paid a substantial six figure premium to acquire the 1,587 sq ft Covent Garden restaurant which is in a Grade II listed building.

Mark Calder Head of Sales at Restaurant Property who advised Sapori said: “There is a very strong demand from restaurateurs seeking to have a presence in Covent Garden. This particular site close to the Theatre Royal and Aldwych Theatre attracted a lot of interest and hence we were able to achieve a substantial premium.”

The Leisure Partnership acted for Barrafina.
