The inaugural Soho & Chinatown Restaurant Finance Show 2019
The First Merchant team was delighted to host the inaugural Soho & Chinatown Restaurant Finance Show on Wednesday 15 May 2019. This special event was held at the newly-opened Martha’s Soho and attended by 75 luminaries from the central London leisure scene. First Merchant is delighted to have funded the acquisition and development of this stunning and cool new restaurant in the heart of Soho. After a sumptuous brunch where leisure property professionals and operators met each other informally, our guests were treated to gripping presentations by Trevor Watson and Jonathan Moradoff of Davis Coffer Lyons who gave the very latest London marketplace news. Tony Hamlin of First Merchant and Martin Norwood of Woodside followed with an overview of how bespoke funding deals for restaurants, bars and pubs in Soho and Chinatown can be provided by First Merchant. The final presentation was given by the remarkable Ellen Chew who told the fascinating story of her success in Asian and Tapas restaurants over the last decade. Thank you for supporting this show and we look forward to inviting you to the next special event!
