Bar and restaurant group, Drake & Morgan, has announced plans to open The Bothy restaurant in West India Quay in May.
The announcement comes as part of the business’ strategy to build a multi-brand bar and restaurant portfolio.
The site, a Grade-I listed warehouse, will seat 200 diners and span 11,522 sq ft across two floors. The bar will be housed on the ground floor while restaurant seating in the lower ground. A riverside terrace will allow for a further 200 to dine alfresco and will have its own bar.
The design will incorporate original warehouse features, including the timber beams, exposed floorboards, flag stone flooring, cast iron columns and deep-founded brick walls. Downstairs there will be an open kitchen and cocktail bar.
The Bothy will trade seven days a week, offering an all-day menu from breakfast through to dinner as well as small plates and sharing boards.
Jillian MacLean, managing director, said: “West India Quay has become a drinking and eating destination and has been on our radar for some time. Following our recent successful opening of the Pagination across the water in Canary Wharf, I am looking forward to welcoming our customers to the Bothy.”
The pub group plans to open four new bar restaurants this year: three in London at West India Quay, Cannon Green and on Principal Place, plus one in Manchester’s St. Peter’s Square.
In January this year, Drake & Morgan acquired two new sites in the City; the Listing in Cannon Green and The Allegory in Principal Place.
