Salvatore at Fifty closes

23 November, 2009

Famous London cocktail establishment Salvatore at Fifty has closed.

A statement on the cocktail maestro Savatore Calabrese’s website said: “Despite the plethora of awards and its financial success until the last drop was poured from the silver shaker, the bar was caught up in a joint venture situation, which is now in liquidation.

“I am shocked because it happened so quickly. What made the bar such a magical place was the bond between the people who worked there, my team. They were loyal to me to the last and I say thank-you to them. The bar was successful to the end. It just could not be extricated from the escalation of an unfortunate situation.”

The person answering the old phone line said the company went into liquidation last Monday.
