Candle bar concept looks to sniff out Brighton location

3rd November 2023 | Jack Oliver

Paddywax is looking for a suitable location in Brighton to open its ‘Candle Bar’ concept.

The experiential retail stores allow customers to shop the candle brand’s curated collections, or create their own custom candle.

Customers are welcome to daily one-hour workshop classes, enabling them to learn the art of candle making and using a range of different vessels and scents. The workshops are designed with events such as birthdays, hen dos, and team building days in mind.

The operator is now seeking suitable units in Brighton between 1,000 sq ft and 2,000 sq ft in size for workshop and retail space. Ideal sites will be in close proximity to restaurants or other similar activity-oriented businesses. Preferred units will also have nearby parking.

The brand’s target demographic is women between the ages of 20 and 60, in areas with a university or college population nearby.

In the UK, Paddywax currently operates a site in Bath with one under offer in Edinburgh.

The brand is part of US-based Designworks Collective, with its product line featured in American retail stores including Urban Outfitters and Nordstrom.

Anna Hansen of Edinburgh-based commercial property consultants Orinsen has been appointed to find suitable locations.
