05/07/2021 - The restaurant chain, The ASH, the successful concept of the Apeiron Restaurant & Retail Management GmbH, signs lease for the gastronomy pavilion at the MesseCity Cologne.

The restaurant chain, The ASH Restaurant & Bar continues to grow and will open its eleventh restaurant this coming Fall following the opening of the restaurant in Bremen in July. In the process, the KSH 2 Systemgastronomie GmbH is stepping in as operator of the approximately 1,200 m² gastronomy pavilion at the MesseCity Cologne, thus becoming the focal point of the recently completed trade fair balcony in the Cologne-Deutz district. In addition to the generously glass enclosed pavilion, the restaurant & bar concept will also occupy the associated outdoor area of around 160 m² on the trade fair balcony.

"I am very happy that we will open our second The ASH Restaurant in Cologne after the one on the Hahnenstr. and thus, already the eleventh restaurant nationwide in Germany. The location is a central element on the trade fair balcony and therewith perhaps the most exciting place in Cologne from a gastronomic point of view," says a visibly satisfied Hahne, Founder and CEO of the parent company Apeiron.

Framed by the two central buildings of the MesseCity Köln CENTRAAL and Southern Cross, the impressive, fully glass enclosed building is easily recognized, inviting visitors to the various trade fair events as well as to relax on its two patios.

"The ink on the contract is now dry, but we still have some very exciting and work-intensive weeks ahead of us" says the successful restaurateur, who is looking forward to welcoming not only the local guests but also to the international trade fair audience. "The multicultural guest mix makes the challenge even greater, of course. But that's exactly what we were looking for and why we also opened our L'Osteria last year just a few meters away. We can't wait to finally get started and welcome the first guests."

Interior work on the restaurant will begin shortly, with handover scheduled for the summer and opening in the Fall of 2021.

After Bremen, this will be the eleventh The ASH restaurant to open in Germany later this year in the Fall.
