A hybrid bar, restaurant and music venue will open at 100 Wardour Street in London’s Soho on 28 January.
Interior design firm Russell Sage Studio has kitted out the two-level site – once home to the Marquee Club, which played host to names such as The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and Fleetwood Mac during the 1960s and 1970s.
Des Gunewardena, head of hospitality group D&D London, says: ‘100 Wardour Street has a great history and we think that its new incarnation will keep the venue firmly at the centre of what is happening in Soho.’
An all-day lounge and restaurant will occupy the ground floor, featuring a ‘playroom’, complete with a dining-cum-pool table and a vintage jukebox.
Downstairs, the 100 Wardour Club has a dance floor and stage, set to showcase both upcoming and established artists. The underground space will run until 3am, making it one of few West End venues to serve food until the early hours.
Executive chef Liam Smith-Laing heads up the food department, serving Mediterranean-inspired dishes.
The 425-cover venue will be one of London’s largest restaurants.
