Located in London’s West End, Kingly Court is now a 1,200-cover, 15-venue food and dining destination. The three-storey food hub also has an open-air courtyard to allow al-fresco dining for five ground floor restaurants.
The new additions include The Detox Kitchen’s first stand-alone deli, authentic tonkotsu ramen restaurant Shoryu Carnaby, Caribbean-inspired The Rum Kitchen Carnaby, chicken and craft beer restaurant Whyte & Brown, fruit and smoothie café Moosh and espresso bar Soho Grind. Yoga studio triyoga has also expanded with a new health and lifestyle café, Retreat, on the third floor.
They join existing venues Cha Cha Moon, Camellia’s Tea House, Cinnamon Soho, Shampers, Two Floors, Disco, Bittersweet and Wright Brothers Soho which has recently undergone refurbishment.
The court’s interior has been redeveloped to feature refreshed signage and intricate pastel painted buildings, and a two-storey mural has been created to ornate the Carnaby Street entrance. The refurbishing also included a central seating area with free Wi-Fi around the courtyard’s tree.
The new restaurants were handpicked to match kingly Court’s vibrant yet affordable positioning by real estate investment trust Shaftesbury PLC, which handled the whole re-design.
Simon Quayle, the firm’s director, said: “The development is the latest chapter in Carnaby’s ongoing evolution. The destination has always been at the forefront of everything that is new and different and the food hub is an example of this - a response to gap in the market for a major food destination in Central London.”
The fifteen independent restaurants are accessibly priced and offer a range of five international cuisines for an all-day experience.
Further new openings are expected to be announced over the summer of 2014.
