SPRINT LEGEND Usain Bolt hosted a multitude of celebrity friends on November 14 at the official launch party for Tracks & Records - his first London restaurant.

The Jamaican inspired restaurant, bar and lounge welcomed the likes of Idris Elba, Leon Bailey and Emeli Sandé to name a few, who partied well into the night, sipping on rum cocktails and enjoying the unique Jamaican party atmosphere with the world’s fastest man to celebrate his latest venture.

Offering an authentic slice of Jamaica in the heart of the capital, Tracks & Records is Bolt’s first restaurant in the UK and is located a few minutes’ walk from Liverpool Street Station at 94 Middlesex Street, E1 7EZ.

Guests enjoyed a real taste of Jamaica by indulging in some of Bolt’s favourite dishes such as jerk chicken and jerk pork, saltfish fritters and coconut & cassava prawns. Signature Jamaican cocktails such as Reggae Rum Punch, Mama Breeze and Sorrel Smash were also served, all of which were carefully curated using the bar’s extensive rum collection.

Guests immersed themselves into Usain’s world as the unique interior has been created with his style in mind - including a slick bar which features over 100 Jamaican Rums, modern wall art and exclusive Bolt memorabilia throughout.

Split across two floors, guests enjoyed live performances from singer/songwriter Christopher Ellis, sets by Radio 1xtra DJ Seani B and DJ Alan Brandon featuring recording artist Stylo G downstairs on the dancefloor whilst others relaxed in the private chillout area aptly titled The Appleton Estate Lounge.

Bolt said: “It’s great to come back and see the final results of Tracks and Records London - it’s amazing! Now London can experience real Jamaican vibes and a taste of my home. The basement with lounge, bar and live DJ’s has been a great addition to the concept here”.

FAMILIAR POSE: The legend strikes a pose that has been made famous over the years

Gary Matalon, Managing Director of FRANJAM, said: “After much success with our Tracks & Records restaurants in Jamaica, we’re delighted to be here with Usain to officially open Tracks & Records London.

"I believe this signifies the first time a local, home grown Jamaican concept has evolved into becoming an International franchise and this further confirms brand Jamaica’s global potential”.

Tracks & Records London will be the first of 15 sites to open across the UK over the next 10 years.
