Restaurant group D&D London is to launch a new restaurant, bar and music venue on the site of what used to be Latin American club Floridita, and pan-Indian restaurant Carom.
The new venue, which also used to be home to the Marquee Club, will be renamed 100 Wardour St and is set to open in January next year.
Set over two floors, with an all-day restaurant, lounge and cocktail bar on the ground floor, and a second restaurant on the lower ground floor, 100 Wardour St will be designed by Russell Sage Studios.
The lower ground floor will open in the evenings and will feature live music performances and special guest DJs.
It will have a total capacity of 425 covers for dining and 872 for events.
Most recently the building has been the home of Latin American club Floridita and Pan-Indian restaurant Carom. In its previous life as the Marquee Club, headline acts included the Rolling Stones and Fleetwood Mac, who both made their London debut performances at the club.
The newly appointed executive chef is Liam Smith-Laing, previously head chef at La Petite Maison in Istanbul and prior to that at Skylon in London. His menu will offer Modern European and Mediterranean cuisine with a twist.
David Loewi, managing director at D&D London, said: "We are extremely excited to be launching a new concept at this iconic London address. There will be many reasons to visit 100 Wardour St; a beautiful new interior by Russell Sage, some great bars, live music and it's fantastic to have Liam Smith-Laing back at D&D to head up the kitchens."
