Sugar Dumplin, we’re a little bit late with the news

It’s been mentioned elsewhere already that Sugar Dumplin – the rum bar on the first floor of the Atrium – appears to have closed at short notice.  Apparently its last day of normal trading was on Saturday.

For some reason, restaurants in that location find it hard to do well, even though (or perhaps because?) it’s on the way to the cinema.  But it’s not difficult to find negative comments about the Dumplin’s food and service, although other people have clearly loved the place.

  1. I feel sure this is all about footfall. Note that no established eating chain saw any merit in either of those sites. Passing traffic on its way to the cinema is irrelevant, and I struggle to think of any chain with a strong enough reputation to get folk up that escalator.

  2. Shame. We enjoyed some cocktails there and it had a nice atmosphere. We should have gone back more often as it was nice to find somewhere a bit different to the run of the mill.
