KINGSTON, Jamaica — Usain Bolt's brand-new Jamaican bar, restaurant and late lounge, Tracks & Records is set to open its first UK venue in London on October 10.

This will be the first of 15 restaurants to be opened across the UK over the next five years.

“After much success with our Track & Records restaurants, we're delighted to be opening in the UK. I believe this signifies the first time a local, home grown concept has evolved into becoming an International franchise and this further confirms brand Jamaica's potential and gives us widespread hope that we can export many other Jamaican brands through this business model,” stated FRANJAM's Managing Director Gary Matalon in a release.

Offering an authentic slice of Jamaica in the heart of the capital, Tracks & Records will be located a few minutes' walk from Liverpool Street Station at 94 Middlesex Street, E1 7EZ.

The unique space is said to feature a mix of bold flavours with Bolt's sports memorabilia and a soundtrack of reggae and dub courtesy of live DJ sets from some of the leading names from the UK circuit.

It has been designed to give guests a real taste of Jamaica. Diners will be able to enjoy Bolt's favourite dishes such as jerk chicken and pork and fried fish and bammy — all packed full of authentic seasonings and spices.

“Our new location, in the heart of the capital, is the perfect spot for friends to get together and embrace Jamaican culture by enjoying traditional flavours, while dancing the night away,” Matalon further stated.

Bolt in the meantime said: “London is my second home and a place very close to my heart - so it's brilliant to be sharing a taste of Jamaica in the capital.”

This is the UK's first Tracks & Records restaurant, with three others in Kingston, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay.
