King's Cross restaurant Rotunda has launched a summer pop-up bar adjacent to neighbouring Granary Square's big screen, which will be showing all the latest tennis action at Wimbledon.
The move, part of Rotunda's Great British Summer campaign, is just in time for ‘Mega Monday' when Britain's Andy Murray and Laura Robson will once again take to the courts.
Owned by Green & Fortune, Rotunda Bar & Restaurant is housed within the Kings Place development and was opened in 2008 by John Nugent, the former chief executive of caterer Searcy.
Commenting on the venture, Nugent said: "Everybody has been frantically waiting for some good weather and to be outdoors. Add tennis, Pimms and strawberries to this mix and we intend to have a great week of fun and sport.
"Our terrace at Rotunda has come alive with the sunshine, adding a great vibrancy to our existing restaurant and bar activity."
Green & Fortune is working with Argent, the main developers behind the regeneration of the area surrounding King's Cross station.
Other recent new openings include Bruno Loubet's Grain Store, also on Granary Square, and the Great Northern hotel close to King's Cross and St Pancras international stations, which is home to Mark Sargeant's new London restaurant Plum + Spilt Milk.
