Covent Garden site for independent wine specialist 28º-50º
Longmartin Properties Ltd, a joint venture between Shaftesbury and the Mercers’ Company, has announced the signing of independent wine specialists, 28º–50º. They are the latest restaurant operator to join The Yards, Covent Garden, the newly re-branded series of interconnecting courtyards that includes St Martin’s Courtyard and Mercer Walk.
Set to open in November, 28º–50º Wine Bar & Kitchen has taken a 7,000 sq ft space at 10 Upper St Martin’s Lane. The Yards’ branch will be a London flagship for 28º–50º.
Richard Green, founder and owner of 28º–50º Wine Bar & Kitchen, Covent Garden, said: “We wanted a prime space with real character for our flagship concept, and The Yards is an ideal location. This restaurant will build on our brand’s strong food and wine heritage, with a décor redolent of our famous wine workshop, but with a modern twist, to meet The Yards’ development ambitions. Our location on Upper St Martin’s Lane is both well-connected and highly visible taking advantage of the dual aspect footfall from where Seven Dials meets Covent Garden.”
CBRE is the asset manager on behalf of Longmartin Properties and acted for The Yards. The Restaurant Property acted on behalf of 28º–50º Wine Bar & Kitchen.
