Dach & Sons closes after poor trading

21st March, 2013 by Becky Paskin

Dach & Sons, the hot dog and burger restaurant owned by Fluid Movement, has closed due to poor trade.

Dach & Sons in Hampstead, London

Dach & Sons has closed after just nine months of trading

The restaurant, located in Hampstead, London, opened in July 2012 with a second outpost of Purl on the first floor.

Serving a range of craft beer and world whisky alongside a US-themed menu of hotdogs, sliders and burgers, Dach & Sons gained positive reviews when it first launched.

However, a lack of trade due to low footfall has forced its closure.

“So… it is with great regret that we announce the immediate closure of Dach & Sons in Hampstead,” a message reads on its website. “The last 9 months have been a huge learning experience for us, and whilst both Dach & Sons and Flat P were amazingly well received initially, we have failed to reach the volume of trade that we had hoped for.

“We would like to thank every one of you who has stopped by since our opening. And thanks also to our aweseome (sic) staff who – for a brief time – placed Hampstead firmly on the London cocktail circuit.”

Fluid Movement is currently working on several new consultancy projects.

    So, Dach & Sons closed due to ‘low footfall’? I would suggest it closed because it was awful.

    I’m a resident of NW3 and I like to try and support all local bars and restaurants as much possible. I visited D&S twice during it’s opening week and was extremely unimpressed, Pushy staff, average food at expensive prices, didn’t want anyone just popping for a beer etc… I emailed one of the guys at Fluid Movement and suggested that they wouldn’t last very long if this continued to be their approach. They seemed to think it was me (a customer) who had the problem rather then them. Proof of the pudding and all that.

    Hot Dogs, whisky and bad attitude……………Works every time…………..Removal firms rejoice!

    Footfall is seriously reduced uphill from the tube station. People just won’t walk uphill. That parade of shops has seen businesses come and go in swift order for the last 20 years, and probably before then.
