On 16th October, bar and restaurant group, Drake & Morgan, will open its 22nd venue The Allegory in Principal Place on the Shoreditch borders.
The Allegory will be located on the ground floor of Brookfield’s premium 600,000 sq ft mixed-use office, residential and retail space in Bishopsgate which is already home to internet retailer Amazon’s new HQ.
The 6,337 sq ft space includes a large bar and separate dining area providing a total of 145 covers, with an al fresco terrace seating an additional 86. Industrial foundations are complemented by carefully curated touches including eye-catching street art, geometric flooring and feature light fixtures, echoing Drake & Morgan’s unique style.
Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, The Allegory’s extensive menu will feature stylish small plates, sharing boards, superfood salads and substantial mains. An extensive drinks list includes a wide range of wines and champagnes, premium spirits, craft beers and creative cocktails/mocktails.
Managing director Jillian MacLean said: “Principal Place, The Un Square Mile, on the edge of Shoreditch, is an exciting new scheme in the heart of London’s tech community. The City of London is Drake & Morgan’s heartland and Principal Place, with its public piazza and buzzing location, is a landmark development and we are looking forward to The Allegory being a central part of it”.
As previously announced, Drake & Morgan will open two more bars and restaurants before the end of year in the Square Mile’s new Cannon Green building and on St Peter’s Square in Manchester.
