MEATliquor’s original site in Marylebone will be demolished later this year to make way for a new luxury hotel. The “dingy” and deafening dive off Oxford Street first started serving “dirty, luscious burgers” back in 2011 and the brand has now grown into 12 sites across the UK. The closing date is as yet unconfirmed and the restaurant will continue to remain open on a month-by-month basis.
Co-founders Scott Collins and Yianni Papoutsis started MEATLiquor in 2009 as a street van and now have sites in London, Bristol, Leeds and Brighton. A new branch will open in King’s Cross this August.
The new Marylebone Lane hotel will incorporate 206-bedrooms over nine storeys with a ground floor restaurant and bar, spa, swimming pool, café and club lounge. It will be operated by Shiva Hotels, which also operates (among others) the Kingsway Hall in Covent Garden, Millennium Bridge House, Vandon House Buckingham Gate, Lincoln Plaza at Canary Wharf and Morley House Holborn Viaduct.
