An entire street in London is to be transformed in to an ‘epicurean avenue’ featuring two bars, four restaurants and an enclosed woodland pergola garden.
Due to open on 9 November, the former Prince of Wales pub on Lillie Road in Earls Court, and four disused connecting buildings on West Brompton Crossing will house burger restaurant Patty & Bun, Thai restaurant the Begging Bowl, farm to table restaurant Rabbit and Vietnamese barbecue restaurant MAM.
Named the Prince, the complex will be open seven days a week until 11:30pm on Friday and Saturdays, 11pm from Tuesday to Thursday, and 10pm on Sunday and Monday.
The former pub will be transformed into a double-level bar. It will be available for large group bookings, with no fee paid for up to 199 covers, as well as individual customers. A total of 600 seats will be available in the pub, with an additional 200 across the other outlets.
An all-year secret weatherproof garden will be found at the back of the restaurants and pubs. The woodland space will begin with a top deck that will lead down into a garden where an outside bar will be wrapped around a vast twisted willow. It will also feature hidden tables and private cabins.
There will be a removable roof for the summer and a bespoke enclosed and heated pergola for the winter.
The Prince is a project from the Incipio Group, the team behind Pergola on the Roof, a 600-seater rooftop eatery in White City and Pergola Paddington Central, an 850-cover dining experience outside Paddington Station.
Founded in 2014, the Incipio Group specialises in taking unused or temporarily dormant spaces and turning them into lifestyle concepts.
