Swift Shoreditch will launch on Great Eastern Street in late July and will be open from 8am on weekdays and 11am on weekends serving coffee and brunch-style dishes in addition to cocktails. All-day dining options will include wild mushrooms, parmesan and egg yolk on St John’s Sourdough; and sauternes-soaked peaches and raspberries with mascarpone on waffles.
There will also be Neal’s Yard Toasties and to-go breakfast items.
The interior will follow a similar aesthetic to the ground floor of the original bar with art deco touches throughout and the bar’s counter lined with high chairs, with banquette style seating around the venue.
The original Swift, located on Soho’s Old Compton Street and set across two floors, launched in November 2016 by husband and wife team Mia Johansson and Bobby Hiddleston in partnership with another husband and wife team, Roisin Stimpson and Edmund Weil, owners of Nightjar and Oriole. It will reopen on 4 July.
“Around the world, our beloved hospitality industry has been deeply affected by the catastrophic impact of COVID-19. Whilst we’re all still in uncertain times and have a long road ahead of us on our way to recovery, we have faith in the British public’s love of coming together for great food and drink and are hopeful that London’s world-class cocktail scene will rebuild itself to come back stronger than ever,” says Swift co-owner Mia Johansson.
“Sticking to our plan to open our second site is just the embodiment of our faith in this and we are so excited to start hosting guests again.”
