British boxing legend punches way into foodservice market

Carl Froch

Boxing legend Carl Froch has stepped into the UK bar and restaurant market by putting his name to a new venture in Nottingham.

The sports star has teamed up with John Glover, Marc Brough and Rebecca Brough, who have a wealth of previous experience in the bar and restaurant scene, to launch Alto, which is located on the top floor of The Cornerhouse.

The bar’s famous rooftop terrace has been completely refurbished for guests to enjoy the remaining summer sun on loungers, while inside four bars will offer drinks and tapas-inspired dishes with a dedicated dance floor area and exclusive VIP section.

Mr Froch said: “Alto is the only bar in Nottingham to have a rooftop terrace – there’s nothing like looking at the city skyline with an amazing drink in hand surrounded by your mates. We want to be known as the place you go for a guaranteed great time – the new interiors, drinks, and entertainment on offer won’t disappoint.”

The venue is currently being refurbished (below) and will open for business on Friday August 3.

Mr Froch, who was a super-middleweight world champion, retired from boxing in 2014.
