In a bid to capitalise on its association with the biggest burglary in English history, the owners of the new wine bar intend to serve drinks through the hole drilled by the robbers during the audacious raid, The Sun has revealed.

The gang drilled a 50cm deep, 25cm high, 45cm wide hole into a 50cm thick wall of the basement of the building in April 2015 and stole £14m-worth of gems in the raid.

The hole was sealed following the incident, but the building’s new leaseholder, businessman David Pearl, had it drilled open again and will use it to pass drinks through when his new wine bar and restaurant opens, The Sun said.

Hatton Garden Safe Deposit Ltd went into liquidation after the infamous raid fatally damaged the company’s reputation.

The Hatton Garden heist was the biggest burglary in British history. Nine men were originally charged with the offence.

Ringleaders John Collins, 75, Daniel Jones, 60, Terry Perkins, 67, and Brian Reader, 76, have since pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit burglary.

They are due to be sentenced along with Carl Wood, 58, and William Lincoln, 60, and Hugh Doyle, 48 on 7 March.

In the same week that the final three members of the gang were found guilty of involvement in the heist, it was revealed that it was to be made the subject of a new film, according to The Guardian.

The film has been given the working title of The Hatton Garden Job.
