Inception Group, the operator of the themed Mr Fogg’s and Bunga Bunga bars, is developing a new concept for the former Cinnamon Soho site.

The company has taken on the central London space following the Indian restaurant's closure this month​ after six years of trading.

Inception Group will run pop-up bar Casa Bonita in the site for six months from the end of June while working on longer-term plans for the location, which will be announced later this year.

Latin-inspired Casa Bonita will be a “relaxed and colourful” bar serving cocktails and bar snacks with regular live music.

It will back on to the Kingly Court food emporium, trading seven days a week from 2pm – 1am.

“We are thrilled to have been given this amazing opportunity to take on this prime Carnaby, Soho bar premises,” says Charlie Gilkes, founder of Inception Group.

“We'll be trading it as a fun Latin inspired pop-up until the end of the year before revealing our exciting longer-term plans with the site.”

Inception Group's London portfolio includes Chelsea bar Barts, 80’s-themed Maggie’s, 1940’s-inspired Cahoots and Bunga Bunga spin-off Bungatini.

It is planning to double the size​ of its Mr Fogg’s bar portfolio to six London locations this year.
