Administrators from Zolfo Cooper appointed to famous City wine bar chain

Administrators have been appointed to famous City wine bar Balls Brothers.

Zolfo Cooper partners Nick Cropper, Peter Holder and Stuart Mackellar, were appointed joint administrators to Balls Brother Limited and Lewis & Clarke.

The companies operate 19 bars and restaurants across the City and West End of London, employing 332 staff.

Administrators will trade the companies with the aim of selling them as a going concern.

“The Balls Brothers business has been an established name for over 50 years and is extremely well known across the London leisure and dining sector,” said Cropper.

“The company has a great heritage and enjoys a lasting reputation due to its high standards in service, food and wine, and is sure to generate significant interest.”
