Welcome to another jam-packed edition of Premier Hospitality.
In this month’s issue we head down to Carnaby Street to scope out Whyte & Brown; we visit Manchester to check out two new venues from Living Ventures; and we take a sneak peak at brand new American-style restaurant Honky Tonk.
Whyte & Brown is the brand new free-range chicken and egg concept, currently taking Carnaby Street by storm. Overseen by Chairman Kevin Bacon and Creative Director Fiona Gale, the 3450 sq ft casual dining restaurant and bar opened on the 9th of July 2013 and includes 132-covers, split across two levels, with room for a further 24 alfresco diners in the courtyard.
Meanwhile, two of Living Venture’s more recent sites include Artisan Kitchen & Bar and Grand Pacific. Both sites are located in the heart of Manchester City Centre and both have leading interior designer (and self-confessed ‘one-woman Aussie-band’) Michelle Derbyshire, in common. Keen to discover what each site is all about Premier Hospitality catches up with the in-demand designer to get the lowdown on the venues which are the current talk of the town.
And finally, this autumn a little slice of the big apple will arrive in Clapham in the form of Honky Tonk. Honky Tonk is the brainchild of Mark Cutler, one of the founders of Notting Hill institution, Supperclub London and will offer al fresco seating overlooking the common.
Honky Tonk Clapham will house over 150 covers with separate restaurant, bar and private dining areas, as well as a stage for musicians to play from every night. The décor will feature worn brown leather banquette seating, vintage rock ‘n’ roll music posters and old Elvis films projected on a large screen.
Now, with all that and more it’s time to sit back and enjoy this month’s Premier Hospitality.
