We are delighted to see Moo Steakhouse now open and trading at the highly prominent corner site of 99 Wardour Street in the heart of Soho.
Acting on behalf of the Landlord, jointly with Richard Spencer at Eddisons, Lewis Craig were tasked with sourcing a high-quality F&B operator to occupy the site, formerly occupied by Byron.
Following an extensive marketing campaign, with countless expressions of interest and offers received, Moo Steakhouse’s vision to bring back the charm of this historic corner property was undoubted. Heads of Terms for a new lease were swiftly agreed, with the conveyance process completing a short time thereafter.
The property has quite a history, built in 1784 by the publican Samuel House, originally trading as The Intrepid Fox pub, named after Britain’s first Foreign Secretary! Fast forwarding a few hundred years still operating under the same name the pub became a popular rock ‘n’ roll boozer patronised by the likes of Mick Jagger, Rod Stewart and the Sex Pistols.
Moo has now converted the site into a 60-cover chic, laid back restaurant, offering authentic Argentinian cuisine, bringing a new ambiance with the same authentic flavours, high quality ingredients and fantastic service that made their original Pimlico site such a huge success.
Moo have reimagined the basement sales area as the new Intrepid Fox Cocktail Lounge, offering a unique atmosphere, music and light food, providing a completely different experience to upstairs.
We wish the team every success, and we’re delighted to have become a part of their exciting story.
