Albion & East Limited

Albion & East Limited aims to introduce new bar and restaurant concepts offering a range of services throughout the day with added appeal to the growing number of “millennials” who are increasingly providing the bulk of consumer spending on food and drink in the UK.

The first cocktail bar and dining hall, Martello Hall, is located in London Fields, Hackney.  Styled as a “banquet hall of reclaimed decadence”, the site is set over three floors and has food and drink offerings that span the entire day from breakfast through to late night pizzas.

The company’s second site, Canova Hall in Brixton opened its doors on 23 September 2017.  Canova Hall offers a relaxed workspace environment in the daytime, cocktails in the evenings and its own on-site gin distillery.  You can also book a bartender to make drinks for you at your table too.

Cattivo is the groups second opening in Brixton located adjacent to sister site Canova Hall. Cattivo will comprise of a laid-back Italian style café at street level, with a decadent subterranean cocktail bar below.  Cattivo is the first concept of its type from the Albion & East team, offering a departure from the popular voluminous all-day dining model occupied by Martello, Canova and Serata Halls.

Cattivo will host an eclectic mix of nightly changing shows and activities, with an emphasis on experiential event led activity. These include a ‘dinner and a show’ package featuring cabaret, jazz, circus performers and magic, complementing a showtime brunch available weekends. The Liquor Club will invite guests to bring their own liquor and have the drinks experts mix and create different cocktails across a 2-hour sitting.

Backed by Imbiba, specialist investors in the UK hospitality market, Martello Hall opened in December 2016, followed by Canova Hall in May 2017, with their third project, Serata Hall within The Bower development at Old Street opened in 2019.

Albion & East Limited is backed by the Imbiba Partnership, helping entrepreneurs invest and build sustainable hospitality businesses in Central London.
