Drake & Morgan to open the bothy in West India Quay

On 8th May, bar and restaurant group, Drake & Morgan, will open The Bothy in West India Quay as part of its strategy to build a significant, multi-brand bar and restaurant portfolio.

Designed by Fusion Design and Architecture, the 11,522 square-foot Grade I listed warehouse is spread over two floors – a ground floor bar and lower ground floor restaurant providing a total of 200 covers. In addition, a large riverside terrace, complete with its own external bar, provides alfresco seating for a further 200.

The original warehouse features, including the timber beams, exposed floorboards, flag stone flooring, cast iron columns and deep-founded brick walls, have been retained and restored. These are mixed with warm colours, soft furnishings and modern lighting to create a comfortable, urban drinking and dining environment. The upper ground floor will include a statement, central oak bar highlighting the extensive drinks range, while downstairs there’s an open kitchen and cocktail bar clad with padded upholstered leather panels.

The Bothy will trade seven days a week with an all-day menu that features breakfast, weekend brunch, lunch and dinner, as well as small plates and sharing boards. An extensive wine list sits alongside premium spirits, craft beers and innovative cocktails/mocktails.

Jillian MacLean, Managing Director, says: “West India Quay has become a drinking and eating destination and has been on our radar for some time. Following our recent successful opening of The Pagination across the water in Canary Wharf, I am looking forward to welcoming our customers to The Bothy”.

As previously announced, Drake & Morgan will open four brand-new bar restaurants this year: three in London at West India Quay, Cannon Green and on Principal Place, plus one in Manchester on St. Peter’s Square.
