Karaoke and cocktail bar Karaoke Box and Rub Smokehouse have become the latest operators to set up on Broad Street.

The pair have taken the final two units at the Regency Wharf leisure scheme off the popular nightspot.

Karaoke Box selected the site for its first unit outside of Central London and has signed a new 15 year lease on a 5,500 sq ft courtyard unit at a rent of £14.50 per sq ft.

Nottingham-based restaurant group Rub Smokehouse has also signed a new 15-year lease on the 7,500 sq ft “sky bar” unit at a rent of £9.25 per sq ft.

The lettings follow a period of investment by the scheme’s owner Picton, a property investment company, which was designed to reinvigorate the Regency Wharf estate and make it a key destination in Birmingham’s leisure market.

These initiatives included the commissioning of two cutting edge street murals by London-based professional graffiti and street art company, Graffiti Life.

Regency Wharf will also host a regular street food market, the first of which launched earlier this month.

Laurence Jones, Senior Asset Manager at Picton Capital, said: “With Karaoke Box and Rub Smokehouse now signed, Regency Wharf is on track to reach its full potential.”
