Cosy Club Derby
Marketing Derby first met the team at Cosy Club in September 2014 at BCSC, the UK retail industry's trade show held at London Olympia. Having discussed their expansion plans and the opportunity that Derby presented them, they came to visit the city in March 2015. A tour of the city centre showcased Derby's potential for their brands.
A couple of months later and the team had settled on the Royal Hotel Buildings on Victoria Street as their ideal location. Following a significant investment and refurbishment programme, Cosy Club Derby opened for business in May 2016 and is set to be a major addition to the Derby dining scene.
Raj Manek, Property Manager at Loungers, said "Marketing Derby first got in touch with me back in September 2014 and convinced me to come visit them in early 2015. I spent most of the day walking around the city with Jimmy and Tom. Their understanding of how the various retail and leisure pitches worked helped to convince me that Derby presented a fantastic opportunity for our restaurants."
"Now, just over one year since my initial visit, we have opened a Cosy Club in the old Royal Hotel building on Victoria Street and will shortly be opening Carnero Lounge on St Peter's Street in July 2016. These openings represent an investment in excess of £1.5m in Derby and the creation of some 60 jobs this year."
