Little B private events space opens at Brasserie Blanc's Covent Garden restaurant

By Luke Nicholls , 08-Aug-2012

Raymond Blanc’s French casual dining chain Brasserie Blanc has introduced a new private events space at its restaurant in Covent Garden.

‘Little B’ complements the main public bar at Brasserie Blanc Covent Garden, which is situated in the iconic Opera Terrace building. It is a self-contained room, complete with its own private bar, staff and separate air conditioning and music systems.

The area, which can accommodate up to 25 people for drinks or 15 for a provate dinner, features hand-painted murals decorating the walls and velvet and silk cushions in jewel-bright colours.

Little B sits alongside Bar Blanc in the Covent Garden site, which features a lunch menu of salads, steaks and sharing plates along with a cocktail list designed by The Cocktail Club’s JJ and James - winners of the 2009 series of BBC2’s The Restaurant.

Earlier this year, Brasserie Bar Co, the operator of the Brasserie Blanc and White Brasserie brands, secured a new £6m facility from Barclays to support its expansion and development plans.

Raymond Blanc's mid-range concept Brasserie Blanc is now set to pursue its own expansion strategy of opening in the provinces after it completes the conversion of former Chez Gerard sites in London, chief executive Mark Derry revealed.
