Pannone Corporate has advised crazy golf brand, Junkyard Golf Club, on the purchase of its second London site – its biggest location to date.
The Manchester firm acted as legal adviser to the competitive socialising brand on the acquisition of a prominent 19,500 sq. ft. building in the heart of Camden Town. The former Shaka Zulu restaurant will be transformed into an immersive crazy golf experience and will be the company’s seventh site opening. This includes its flagship venue on First Street in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Oxford, Shoreditch in London, and Newcastle.
The Pannone team was led by Real Estate partner, James Wynne and included James Brandwood (Senior Associate) and Harry Jenkins (paralegal.)
James Wynne said: “Junkyard Golf has become an iconic brand – not only in its hometown of Manchester, but across the country. The latest opening in one of London’s best cultural hotspots is testament to company’s growth ambitions, but also its resilience in weathering the COVID-19 pandemic, which significantly impacted on the leisure and hospitality sector.
“We’re delighted to be working alongside such exciting North West brands as they extend their footprint across key cities in the UK. This is another significant step forward for Junkyard Golf and forms part of ambitious domestic and international growth plans for 2023.”
James has worked alongside Junkyard Golf since 2017, with the firm acting on all site openings since.
The Pannone Real Estate team works with a number of high-profile names, such as Boohoo, Bestway, and Mission Mars.
