Darwin & Wallace to open fifth site at Battersea Power Station in 2017
Bar and restaurant group Darwin & Wallace is to open its fifth site in 2017 named No29, at the multi-million pound Circus West development at Battersea Power Station in south London.
The all-day venue will offer casual bar dining, with an Antipodean-inspired menu created from locally-sourced ingredients, with cocktails using spirit infusions, house made syrups and sherbets, plus international wines, and a range of local craft beers and international lagers.
The interior design, inspired by the power station itself, will come from the group's usual designers, Lou Davies and Lionel Real de Azúa, of Box 9 and Red Deer respectively. Between them they have worked on sites including Pizza East, Soho House Berlin, the Riding House Café, and Bourne & Hollingsworth.
It will be the only pub to open in the first phase of the power station development.
Founded by Mel Marriott and funded by the Imbiba Partnership, Darwin & Wallace is a group of bars and restaurants in London ‘villages'. It first opened in Belgravia in 2012 with No 11 Pimlico Road, followed by No 32 the Old Town in Clapham in 2014 (pictured), and No 1 Duke Street in Richmond in 2015. The group's fourth location is set to open in Chiswick this April.
Commenting on the new development, Marriott said: "We are all incredibly excited to be a part of Battersea Power Station's regeneration development and the growing community within it. Together with our team of artisans and carefully selected suppliers, we are looking forward to seeing our vision of a modern 21st century pub come to life."
The Imbiba Partnership also operates the projects Camm and Hooper, Ruth & Robinson, Wright & Bell, and Project Celsius.
Set alongside the western edge of Battersea Power Station, the Circus West development will offer residences, offices and visitor space for up to 25,000 people, including two new buildings designed by architects Simpson Haugh and Partners, and dRMM.
