The team behind award-winning Soho cocktail bar Swift are opening a new all-day venue on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch late July.
Following over 100 days of closure for the hospitality industry, the new addition to the Swift family will open as planned whilst following social distancing guidelines, while the Soho site will open from 4 July.
Bringing an all-day offering for the first time, the venue will be open from 8am on weekdays and 11am on weekends, serving artisanal coffee and brunch-style dishes in addition to cocktails.
Adopting a similar aesthetic to the ground floor of the original bar, Swift Shoreditch will “capture the heart and soul” of its sister site, with elegant, bright art deco touches throughout, banquette style seating, greenery and canopied French glass doors.
Swift Shoreditch’s 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.
Co-owner Mia Johansson said: “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.
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.”
