CBRE Advises on Opening of Maikonita, Shoreditch

Global real estate advisor, CBRE, has advised Lollipop on the opening of Maikonita restaurant in east London.

Following the successful launch of Lollipop’s new immersive bar, H-Division, Maikonita will be located inside the new multi-storey venue Shoreditch Funhouse. It will be Lollipop’s third multi-experiential venue housing different concepts of food, drinks and immersive entertainment, following the opening of both Hackney Funhouse and Chelsea Funhouse.

Dubbed as “London's iconoclastic experience entrepreneur” by Forbes, owner and founder Seb Lyall will deliver a unique Nikkei experience to London and its visitors. “Opening a restaurant in Shoreditch is like a homecoming for me,” said Lyall. “Being an east Londoner myself, I am proud that we can add our touch to such a vibrant and eclectic food and drink scene in this part of London.”

Maikonita will entertain its guests with Geisha style performances throughout the evening alongside their dining experience. The restaurant promises to deliver an authentic taste of Nikkei cuisine and will utilise sustainable, world-class produce.

Consumers are looking for experiential-led leisure offerings now more than ever, and Lollipop is a pioneer in the immersive hospitality and entertainment sector. We are pleased to have been able to assist them in securing this fantastic location for their latest venture.
