This year started off with an unexpected bang. And for the food and beverage industry, it's been a roller-coaster of openings and closures, of isolation and social distancing. So it's unsurprising that the desire for a well-deserved drink is needed more than now––and Black Sheep Restaurants wants to provide a place of comfort in the times we're living in.
The Last Resort is their answer to that. Set to open in late autumn in Soho, the new opening aims to provide a chance for you to saddle up in a bar with friends, where a friendly face behind the bar top is offering a quick drink to wash away the stress of the day.
Co-founded by Gen.T honouree, Syed Asim Hussain, Black Sheep Restaurants has always curated a distinct dining experience that tells a story about a particular time, place, culture or cuisine while celebrating the bounty of premium ingredients available locally and abroad. The Last Resort is said to be "a crumpled love letter" to the types of places founder Christopher Mark spent years sneaking into that evoke a sense of nostalgia of the old days and of simpler times.
