Cocktail-led bar and restaurant brand 63rd+1st, part of the newly listed Hostmore which also operates restaurant group Fridays, has announced that Graeme Nesbitt has been appointed as operations director.
He will join the business next week from his most recent role as group director of food and beverage at Hand Picked Hotels, having also previously run Iconic Luxury Hotels' Lygon Arms in Broadway, Worcestershire, as general manager.
Nesbitt said: "The 63rd+1st experience is absolutely fantastic; the venues are beautiful, the sharing menu is delectable. Add in an atmosphere created by a fantastic team and cocktails that are handcrafted to perfection and the result is a place guaranteed to make great things happen.
"I am excited to be joining the company at a time of expansion and I am dedicated to excel the brand's reputation to ultimately make 63rd+1st the ‘go to place' for any and every occasion."
Robert Cook, chief executive of Hostmore, added: "Graeme brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from the luxury hospitality industry. He will undoubtedly inspire our fantastic teams in Cobham, Glasgow and Harrogate through his strategical understanding, ability to deliver under pressure and excellent leadership and motivational style."
Graeme will start his role on Monday 13 December, in advance of the opening of 63rd+1st's fourth location in Cambridge in Spring 2022.
