The Ivy Collection is part of Richard Caring’s Caprice Holdings Group which owns some of the leading restaurants in London including the collection’s historic namesake. Each of the Ivy Collection’s sites evokes the timeless glamour associated with The Ivy, while celebrating their own locations.
Currently there are brasseries in Covent Garden, Chelsea, Kensington, Bristol and Soho, as well as neighbourhood cafes in St John’s Wood, Marylebone & Wimbledon village.
Christian Evans from the developers behind the project, Lateral Property Group commented: The Ivy Collection is the culmination of many years work by Lateral Property Group redeveloping a number of key assets on Parliament Street. This proposed investment clearly demonstrates Harrogate’s role as one of the UK’s leading leisure and retail destinations. It is an incredible coup for Harrogate and should act as a fantastic additional anchor to the town centre.
