Drake & Morgan to open biggest site yet
Restaurant and bar group Drake & Morgan is to open a ninth site - a new bar and grill concept in King's Cross, London - in September.
The venue is to be called Drake & Morgan King's Cross and will be the group's biggest site to date at 14,500 sq ft.
It will be spread across two floors and comprise two bars and a restaurant, deli and lounge, private dining room and a series of bookable kitchen ‘pods' as well as an outdoor terrace.
Drake & Morgan King's Cross will be open seven days a week for breakfast through to dinner and Sunday brunch.
The venue will have a new cocktail list by Alex Daulby (Hops & Jigger), a significantly extended wine list, an extensive range of craft beer and coffee to go.
Jillian MacLean, managing director, said: "Over the last few years we've watched King's Cross regenerate and turn into a diverse foodie hub and are extremely excited to have chosen it as the location for the ninth bar and restaurant.
"The site we've selected is perfectly placed with great passing trade and the Google offices directly above us. Drake & Morgan at King's Cross will be everything that our regular customers have come to love about our brand but with bold new touches introduced across all aspects of the operation from the new menus to the interiors and unique experiential element."
Dylan Murray, director of operations, said: "Drake & Morgan at King's cross will provide an everyday escape for those working in the area with a fully connected lounge for remote working and a destination bar for everything from entertaining clients to catching up with friends. The new opening will represent an elevated offering for Drake & Morgan in everything from the drinks and food menus through to the service."
