Veeno to open new wine bar in George Street

A new wine bar is set to open in Croydon.

Italian chain Veeno have agreed a 15-year lease at 46 George Street.

Kazaw Sabir, franchise partner at Veeno, said: “As a franchisee for Veeno, we have been fortunate enough to work with Veeno’s property advisory firm, Cedar Dean Group.

“Head of leisure acquisition at CDG, Sammy Weinbaum, and leisure acquisition consultant, Jonny Shell, have effectively used their resources, extended support network and competency to successfully acquire our new Veeno site in Croydon.

“As local businessmen in the area, we have been actively working with Veeno to bring the concept of Italian Aperitivo (the ritual of drinking, eating and relaxing after work and at weekends) to Croydon.”

The Veeno brand was founded in November 2013 in Manchester by Nino Caruso and Andrea Zecchino and now has 16 outlets across the country.

Veeno serves wines produced in the family vineyard of co-founder Nino Caruso, Caruso & Minini, in Marsala, Sicily and platters of authentic Spuntini – platters of Italian meats and cheeses.
