As well as serving up barbecued beef, chicken and seafood inspired by Kansas City, big screens will show live American sports as well as football from the UK and across Europe. The venue will also host live musicians picked by Mojo and Q magazine writer, Mat Snow.
The 120-cover restaurant will open its entire frontage during the summer.
Founder, Andre Blais, is planning to invest £400k into the development to expand the smoke house into a 5,000 square foot central kitchen to help with the higher demands.
He said: “Our current smoke house produces 15 tonnes of smoked meat every single week and it’s still not enough to keep up with the demand from barbecue loving Londoners. We’re planning to open new restaurants in the next year so it’s important our smoke house expands at the same rate.”
Blais already has his eyes set on new locations for his smoke houses.
“We’ve got our eye on a few cracking new venues already — so watch this space."
The Old Street branch will be Bodean’s sixth in the capital joining their current venues in Soho, Fulham, Clapham, Towerhill and Balham.
