Tapas Revolution and Smash Burger make regional debuts at SouthGate, Bath

Aviva Investors and British Land have secured a trio of eateries at SouthGate, Bath.

Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy’s Tapas Revolution and Smash Burger will open debut restaurants in the city with Pret A Manger completing the hat trick of deals. In addition, MAC has opened its first stand-alone store in the region, with a 940 sq ft store.

Tapas Revolution will open at the newly developed Little SouthGate restaurant quarter, joining Thaikhun, Comptoir Libanais and Absurd Bird. All four brands locating within Little SouthGate are new to the city and together form a new dining destination with covered outdoor seating to further strengthen the existing SouthGate restaurant offer which includes Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Prezzo and Graze amongst others.

Matthew Reed, Head of Retail Assets (Midlands and South West) for British Land, said: “We are pleased to have secured such a stellar line up at Little SouthGate. The exciting F&B additions to both the leisure quarter and wider centre demonstrate our continued focus on creating outstanding places that are in tune with modern consumer lifestyles.”

Simon Green, Director for Aviva Investors, added: “We are pleased to welcome Smash Burger and Tapas Revolution to SouthGate, bringing these new culinary offerings to the city. It is great that these brands have chosen Bath as the place to establish their first restaurants in the region.”

Aviva Investors and British Land were advised by Cushman & Wakefield and Bruce Gillingham Pollard.
