Big Easy to open first venue outside London following Bluewater signing

Barbecue and lobster brand Big Easy has signed for a 6,100 sq ft site at Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent, which will be the group's first outside of London when it opens in November.

Situated on the upper level of Bluewater's Plaza, it will have 236 covers over two levels, with a live music stage on the mezzanine. The design and feel of Big Easy restaurants is inspired by the American Gulf Coast states, in particular Texas and Florida, and the new site will feature a bar with more than 500 different bourbons, tequilas and whiskeys, a separate rum bar and a theatre kitchen.

Rob Hardie, portfolio director at Landsec, which co-owns and manages Bluewater, said: "Big Easy is the latest in a series of brands that have chosen Bluewater to launch their first location outside London. Big Easy's unique approach, from the theatre and entertainment it provides guests to the range and quality of food and drinks it serves, adds something new to Bluewater, helping us to surprise and delight guests on every visit."

Paul Corrett, founder of Big Easy, added: "Bluewater is a great destination with a significant following among Big Easy fans, so making the commitment to open our first restaurant outside London there was an easy decision. Landsec has worked with our team to deliver a great space in which the Big Easy brand will be brought to life for the enjoyment of Bluewater's guests."

Shelley Sandzer represented Landsec.
