Hart Brothers take the former Hix restaurant in Soho’s Brewer Street

The approximately 5,000 sq ft restaurant property is arranged over a ground floor and basement fronting Brewer Street.


Universities Superannuation Fund (USS), represented by Colliers, has successfully completed the letting of an iconic Soho restaurant in Brewer Street to Harts Group. The group are operators of authentic Barcelona tapas bar group Barrafina, the El Pastor Mexican group, Quo Vadis in Soho and a small selection of restaurants and bars at Coal Drops Yard. 

USS, which owns the Golden Square block and the retail units in Brewer Street behind, agreed terms on the space formerly occupied by the famous Hix restaurant in November 2020 but the deal has not been announced until now. 

“We conducted a very selective under-the-radar marketing approach and received serious interest from a small number of established operators in a very short time. Harts Group impressed the landlord with their great track record and a clear willingness to perform,” said Josh Leon of Colliers, the landlord’s agent. “This site, under the legendary Mark Hix’s ownership, became one of the most loved restaurants in Soho. Harts Group know this neighbourhood better than anyone and are worthy successors.”  

The approximately 5,000 sq ft restaurant property is arranged over a ground floor and basement fronting Brewer Street. The lease was granted for a term of 20-years for an undisclosed rent. Harts Group intend to announce its plans for the site later in the year.  

Colliers and Nash Bond jointly represented USS.
