Laura Montana

NEW PROJECTS OPERATIONS DIRECTOR

Born in Spain, Laura moved to London early on. Her aptitude for languages quickly manifested itself and she went to the Institute of Linguists in London to study modern languages. After an intense foray into the world of translation, she found time to follow the restaurant scene in London, and left to set up a cafe and bar in the West End, which ran from 1996 to 2002, when she sold the business. Laura arrived at The Ivy in 2002, quickly rising through the ranks to become Restaurant Manager in 2005. In 2007, she moved to New York as the Assistant General Manager of the much-talked-about Monkey Bar. After a year, she was lured back to the fold to open Soho House West Hollywood as Food & Beverage Director. This was a turning point in her career, where she honed her experience from these 3 major culinary cities into a more diverse and rounded approach to hospitality. Returning to the UK in 2009, she worked at Scott’s, whilst overseeing the project build for 34 Mayfair, which opened in November 2011. Her role is to oversee the development of the group’s restaurants, clubs and bars. She has been working closely with Caprice Holdings’ Chairman, Richard Caring on the group’s latest project, Sexy Fish, which opened in Berkeley Square in October 2015.
