This will be D&D’s second venture with development owner Hammerson, following the openings of Issho and East 59th at Victoria Gate, Leeds in 2017.
The 13,000sq ft space will contain a restaurant, bars, extensive private dining and a large outdoor terrace, with the restaurant and bars contained within the listed 18th century Friary Building.
“Following our Leeds openings and most recently the launch of our rooftop restaurant 20 Stories in Manchester, our Cabot Circus venture in Bristol reflects our continuing commitment to expansion in the UK outside of London,” says Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D London.
“We are very pleased to be working again with Hammerson and are very supportive and enthusiastic about their plans for the overall development of Quakers Friars.”
D&D currently operates 42 restaurants worldwide, principally in London, but also with locations in Leeds, Manchester, Paris and New York.
Last year Gunewardena told BigHospitality the company would be looking to focus on expansion in the US and mainland Europe if Brexit made it more difficult to open restaurants in the UK.
