new openings and refits


launchpad B


ennett is a new 90 cover brasserie, oyster bar and wine store in Battersea square, one of London’s newly up and coming areas. The menus, which are mainly seafood-led, are a mix of classic French and traditional English dishes with ingredients sourced from around Britain. It’s the brainchild


of Ray Duhaney, who created the concepts for the Cheyne Walk Brasserie and Bumpkin and was Ops Director for Ronnie Scott’s. Here Duhaney has developed a hybrid; it’s a restaurant and a shop that sells organic fruit and veg, freshly baked bread, English cheeses and flowers as well as fine wines. The interiors are the work of designer Shaun Clarkson whose ever expanding portfolio must make him one of the busiest designers in the country.

Battersea Hybrid


New Kid on the Bloc B


loc hotels launch this April with their first site in Birmingham. The general concept follows the


Japanese pod style model, but designers Boxbuild have integrated as many comforts and features as a small space will allow. Working with the Scandinavian Sleep Research Centre, they claim to have discovered the perfect conditions for a solid night’s sleep and applied them to the bedrooms, this includes precise temperature, humidity, bed softness, cotton sheets, ambient lighting and sound insulation. Room rates start at a very reasonable £60 per night. Bloc Hotel, Saint Paul’s, Caroline Street, Birmingham. Tel: +44 (0)121 233 3991 www.blochotels.com
