What’s happening? A new business has been registered at Hutchesons Hall, the former site of Hutchesons City Grill which closed for good last summer.
Ingram 158 has been registered at the address of the listed building, with the company director named as Marco Lazzurri. Marco also owns Tabac and La Fiorentina.
What is Ingram 158? While we don’t have confirmation yet, we imagine given the building fixtures - which include a downstairs bar and lounge and upstairs restaurant and Marco’s experience - that it’ll continue to be run as a restaurant and bar. It is believed it could be an Italian restaurant. We’ll find out more as we get it so watch this space.
What happened to Hutchesons City Grill? Owners James and Louise Rusk made the difficult decision to close the doors for good in 2021.
Back in 2017, owners James and Louise revealed a new-look and name thanks to renovations. Known for its champagne bingo brunches, brilliantly OTT Meet the Widow Halloween nights and its cosy cocktail bar, James said at the time of closing that he hoped that the historic hall continues to be looked after.
