This is an odd one because I thought ZiZZi was happily muddling along, and that the arcade bar was moving into its basement and everything was going swimmingly for the inoffensive immediately forgettable chain.

According to a recent planning application, its ‘foody’ bit is being binned off and is being turned into a pure bar experience. The license application has come from a company called ‘The London Cocktail Club’ which,  if I’m honest, sounds like a shower of cunts destined to build an up-market bar with delusions of grandeur, only for it to crash and burn on the puke filled streets of Newcastle.
