Landsec has announced the signing of Big Easy, the home smoked barbecue and fresh lobster restaurant and bar brand, for a 6,100 sq ft site at Bluewater in what will be Big Easy’s first location outside London when it opens in November.
Situated on the upper level of Bluewater’s Plaza, which is focused on entertainment dining and anchored by Showcase Cinema De Lux, Big Easy will include 236 covers over two levels, with a live music stage on the mezzanine.
Rob Hardie, portfolio director at Landsec, co-owners and asset managers of Bluewater, said: “Big Easy’s unique approach, from the theatre and entertainment it provides guests to the range and quality of food and drinks it serves, adds something new to Bluewater, helping us to surprise and delight guests on every visit.”
Paul Corrett, founder of Big Easy, added: “Bluewater is a great destination with a significant following among Big Easy fans, so making the commitment to open our first restaurant outside London there was an easy decision. Landsec has worked with our team to deliver a great space in which the Big Easy brand will be brought to life for the enjoyment of Bluewater’s guests.”
