The legendary Circle Club, Manchester’s exclusive 24-hour licensed private member’s club, is set to expand its iconic brand throughout the region.
Based in the grade ll listed Barton Arcade off Deansgate, the VIP club which is famous for its celebrity clientele, is aiming to create a further six Circle venues within the next two years and is already in negotiation on two proposed sites.
They are looking for sites in premiership towns around Greater Manchester such as Alderley Edge and Knutsford and key cities including Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester.
The club will be working in partnership to identify and acquire key sites with Vision Developments which is backed by property magnate Morgan Leahy, who owns the Barton Arcade, Lloyds and Lancaster House among other property.
“We have worked with the Circle Club as one of our anchor tenants in the Barton Arcade for the last three years and have been impressed with how they have turned the club around and expanded it during that period,” said Stephen Cliff of Vision Developments and award-winning property entrepreneur.
“It makes absolute sense for us to join forces and help roll out the Circle brand across the region when you combine our property know-how and their expertise in the leisure sector as they have well and truly bucked a trend.” added Morgan Leahy, co-founder of Vision Developments.
As well as Vision Developments, which has a number of projects already underway in Manchester City Centre including Invicta House in Spinningfields and Lloyds on King Street and is aggressively adding to its Manchester City Centre portfolio, they are looking for further investors through a proposed Enterprise Investment Scheme.
