Established in 1999 by Martin Wolstencroft and Chris Ure, Arc Inspirations opened its first bar, The Arc (now Manahatta) in Headingley, Leeds in 2000.
Within four years, The Box and Trio Bar & Grill both in Headingley, were launched along with Zed (now Kith & Kin) and the Hub (now The Pit) in Chapel Allerton, Leeds. 2006 saw the launch of the first bar outside Leeds, Banyan Bar & Kitchen in Harrogate.
