Caprice Holdings is to open the Ivy Brasserie, the fifth spin-off of the restaurant brand, at One Tower Bridge on the south bank of the Thames.
Part of Berkeley Homes' mixed-use development next to City Hall and Tower Bridge, the 8,000 sq ft restaurant will serve a similar all-day menu to the Ivy Chelsea Garden on London's King's Road.
Ivy Brasserie will be close to a new 900-seat theatre, which will be run by the London Theatre Company, and a pedestrian street linking Tooley Street to the Thames. A new 70-bedroom hotel from Indian operator the Lalit is also due to open in 2017 in the grade II-listed St Olave's building located off Tooley Street.
Berkeley Homes (South East London) managing director Harry Lewis said: "This latest signing follows the recent announcement of the London Theatre Company's exciting new riverside venue and marks a significant move to establishing this heritage location as the Covent Garden of the South Bank.
"The Ivy brasserie will perfectly complement the highly anticipated new 900-seat theatre and we look to forward to working with these, and other high-quality operators across the development's retail offer, to create the Capital's newest cultural and dining destination."
