Arc Inspirations to open largest BOX site

Arc Inspirations is set to expand in Birmingham.

Arc Inspirations, the premium bar operator, is set to expand its portfolio of venues with the opening of its largest BOX bar to date in Brindleyplace, Birmingham, this June.

The group currently operates 18 sites across the Midlands and the north of England, under the brands of Banyan Bar & Kitchen, Manahatta and BOX. The latter is a modern sports bar and kitchen brand.

The new 10,000 sq ft venue holds 575 guests and is spread over two floors, featuring an upstairs bar and private dining room. The ground floor boasts an open kitchen, an island bar, and is surrounded by 32 TV screens so guests can watch live sports.

"We’re absolutely thrilled to be opening our biggest venue ever," says Arc Inspirations CEO Martin Wolstencroft. "We love Birmingham and we’re confident BOX will quickly become a popular addition to the incredible nightlife and bar scene here, just like Manahatta has.

"BOX has been a huge hit in major cities like Leeds and Manchester, and this is the right time to bring the brand to the West Midlands. The new venue will create 70 jobs in the local area, including managers, bar, floor and kitchen staff and we’re truly delighted to be expanding our fantastic team."

The new site is part of Arc Inspirations’ ‘cluster strategy’ of operating complementary brands in close vicinity to each other in major cities.
