International hotel operator, Club Quarters, is developing a new hotel and restaurant scheme at Kingsway, London WC2. With an outdoor terrace to Lincoln’s Inn Fields, the 10,000 sq ft restaurant building and 160 room hotel development are currently on site and due to open early in 2012. Leisure property specialists Davis Coffer Lyons has been appointed by Club Quarters to seek an flagship restaurant occupier for the space, which has open plan layout and exceptional floor to ceiling heights.
Club Quarters already operates 14 hotels across the UK and the USA, including three in London located at Trafalgar Square, St Pauls, and the City, primarily aimed at business travellers.
Rob Meadows, Davis Coffer Lyons, said: “This is a really impressive space both in terms of size and grandeur, with two prime entrances and an al fresco dining terrace. Kingsway is one of London’s main through-roads, with high pedestrian footfall and close to Covent Garden and the London School of Economics. The area is bustling with Londoners, day trippers and international tourists and is very much in need of a quality, innovative dining concept to enhance the range of catering provisions on offer in the area. The space can provide the opportunity to establish an iconic restaurant and it is rare to find this size of premises with a large al fresco terrace in this part of London.”
