Olympic Studios, the south west London recording studios that once hosted musical legends such as the Rolling Stones, Jim Hendrix and Madonna, will reopen next month as a café and restaurant, cinema and private members club.
The Olympic Café and Dining Room will be overseen by Jon Laycock, formerly of Soho House, with Swedish-born Andreas Enberg installed as head chef.
Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it will offer a predominantly seasonal British menu with European influences.
Typical dishes in the 90-cover space, with room for a further 20 covers outside, include home-smoked mackerel, Sutton Hoo roast chicken and bread & butter pudding, with a separate children's menu available.
Barnes couple Stephen and Lisa Burdge, owners of film adverting agency Empire Design, are behind the new project. They bought the space from record label EMI in 2010 with the aim of returning Olympic Studios to its roots as an important West London entertainment venue.
After two years spent seeking planning permission, they were then able to partly fund the project by 250 founder members, each of whom paid £5,000.
