Grand Union launching coffee and barber shop concept
London-based bar group Grand Union is launching a new experimental dining concept creating unlikely partnerships between businesses.

The first Concessionary Partners site will combine an artisan coffee outlet with ‘London’s edgiest Barber shop operator’.

Beard trims and razor cuts will be on the menu alongside hot drinks and ‘other exciting additions’ to be announced soon.

Grand Union said the partners will work together to create an 'experimental environment' not seen in the industry before.

“We’ve taken inspiration from the top players in partnership concepts,” said Grand Union CEO Adam Marshall.

“Seven months in the making and we’re ecstatic to play a small part in further developing what in my opinion is the greatest food and drinks Capital.”

The 6,300 sq.ft site will open as the group’s ninth venue - Grand Union Wapping - at the new Thomas More Square development in May 2016.

Grand Union was founded in 2006 and now operates eight bars across London.

The brand is part owned by Luke Johnson, the hospitality investor behind Pizza Express, Giraffe and Patisserie Valerie.
