Bar operator Drake & Morgan has rebranded two Corney & Barrow Wine Bars in London to its Refinery brand.
The move, which takes the number of sites Drake & Morgan operates under the Refinery to six, comes after its acquisition of 11 Corney & Barrow sites for an undisclosed sum in July last year.
The bars will reopen as the Refinery CityPoint and the Refinery New Street Square.
The 4,700 sq ft CityPoint site on Ropemaker Street near Moorgate will open in late February and offer 166 covers across a bar, restaurant, private dining room and lounge area.
The Refinery New Street Square site, near Chancery Lane, will open a month later. The 3,400 sq ft site has capacity for 100 covers on the mixed-use ground floor, and an additional 40 covers can be accommodated on a semi-private mezzanine level.
Drake & Morgan will open four brand new bar-restaurants this year: three in London at West India Quay, Cannon Green and on Principal Place, plus one in Manchester on St Peter Square.
