Independent neighbourhood bar group Darwin & Wallace has announced its seventh location, due to open this winter in Ealing, West London.
Situated in the vibrant Dickens Yard, the new site will join a list of quintessential village pubs already in the group’s portfolio in Chelsea, Clapham, Richmond, Chiswick, Battersea and Wimbledon.
Darwin & Wallace’s Ealing venue will feature an all-day, casual drinks and dining experience with a menu of carefully created drinks and cocktails, and seasonal, locally sourced and sustainable food for any time of the day.
Drawing inspiration from both local and global influences, the site’s design will be resonant of an urban, European loft apartment.
The interior will feature generous lounge seating, oak sharing tables and large statement lamps. Dark wall finishes and poured concrete floors will contrast with lighter, warmer touches in the furnishings, with the aim to create “a bold, modern space that feels like home”.
Outside, terraces will be filled with terracotta pots and delicate trees.
Mel Marriott, Darwin & Wallace managing director, said: “We have long held the desire to be part of the “London village” that Ealing is.
“Finding this superbly located, stand alone, building within the Dickens Yard development has given us the most amazing blank canvas on which to layer on our own interpretation of what a modern pub can be, unique to its location.”
