REVOLUTION BARS GROUP PLC

Publication and Despatch of Circular (including Notice of General Meeting)

Revolution Bars Group plc (the "Group" or the "Company"), a leading UK operator of 66 premium bars, trading under the Revolution and Revolución de Cuba brands, announces that further to the announcement on 25 May 2021 regarding its intention to raise approximately £21.0 million in gross proceeds by way of a Firm Placing and a Placing and Open Offer, it has today published a circular relating to the Fundraising (the "Circular") on its website at www.revolutionbarsgroup.com and despatched a copy of the Circular to Shareholders.

The Circular contains a notice convening a general meeting of the Company (the "General Meeting") to be held at 10.00 a.m. on 14 June 2021 at the Company's Southern Office at Revolution Bars Group plc, Maxwell Road, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire HP9 1QX at which resolutions will be proposed to give the Directors the necessary share capital authorities for the purposes of the Fundraising and on an ongoing basis.

Social distancing measures imposed by the UK Government as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic are currently still in force restricting, among other things, public gatherings. If restrictions on public gatherings remain in force as at the date of the General Meeting, shareholders must not attend the General Meeting in person, and entry will be refused to anyone who seeks to attend in person. Shareholders are strongly encouraged to register their vote in advance by appointing the Chairman of the General Meeting as their proxy and giving voting instructions.

The situation is constantly evolving, and the UK Government may change current restrictions or implement further measures. The Company will continue to closely monitor the impact of COVID-19, including the latest UK Government guidance and restrictions, and how this may affect the arrangements for the General Meeting. Any changes to the General Meeting arrangements will be communicated through the Company's website and, where appropriate, by Regulatory Information Service announcement.

A copy of the Circular (including the notice of General Meeting) will shortly be available from the Company's website, www.revolutionbarsgroup.com.
