Ryan Chetiyawardana has confirmed that his Hoxton-based venue, Cub, which opened in September 2017, will not reopen following lockdown measures in the UK.
Designed to be a ‘luxury sustainable drinks-led dining experience,’ the venue focused on minimise waste while showing that luxury experiences need not be excessive.
Chetiyawardana, aka Mr Lyan, said: “Cub was named as the baby of the group – it was precious and important – and it is incredibly sad to see it go.
“What the team created was something we were truly in awe of – something that reflected our desire to provide a super fun space for our guests, that also showed that our generation could have a positive impact on the world of food and drink.
“Although it won’t reopen as a permanent space, we certainly will continue its legacy as that still stands strong, and something we hope to bring back in the future.”
