Independent neighbourhood bar group Darwin & Wallace is to launch its sixth location in Wimbledon, in south west London next year.
The site will join a portfolio of village pubs in London's Chelsea, Clapham, Richmond, Chiswick and Battersea. Each location is individually designed with a contemporary style, reflecting both local and global influences.
The Wimbledon site will have a terrace and offer all-day dining, while the design will be inspired by European Hygge inspirations from Copenhagen, Denmark, while celebrating Wimbledon's culture.
Mel Marriott, Darwin & Wallace managing director said: "After a long hunt for the perfect spot for Darwin & Wallace in Wimbledon, I am delighted to have finally found this wonderful space, centrally located and adjacent to the station in the midst of Wimbledon's vibrant town centre. The large external terrace will be an excellent all year round feature and we are extremely excited to bring our passion for great food and drink and unique interiors to this gorgeous leafy London village."
Now in its sixth year, the group first opened No 11 Pimlico Road in 2012, followed by No 32 the Old Town in 2014, No 1a Duke Street in Richmond in late 2015, and No 197 Chiswick Fire Station opened in April 2016. No 29 Power Station West recently opened in July this year on the riverside adjacent to the Battersea Power Station.
