The privately-owned ETM Group is set to open its 15th venue this month within London’s £20m Broadgate Circle development near Liverpool Street Station.
The Botanist Broadgate Circle site will be owners Tom and Ed Martin’s first late-night venture and comes after the success of its sister restaurant on Sloane Square.
It will occupy almost 8,000 square feet over two levels: a ground floor bar and restaurant and the subterranean Soda Room, which is set to be Broadgate Circle’s primary drinking and late-night venue.
A raised dining area, bar and al fresco terrace on the ground floor will cater for a total of 158 covers.
Key design features will include: a central feature bar with a botany-inspired flora and fauna artwork and taxidermy display cases; brass-edged tables and a variety of seating options ranging from reclaimed café style chairs to mid-century modern inspired leather armchairs and banquettes with a patchwork of gold, bronze and green leather.
The kitchen will be running seven days a week and cater to weekday lunch, dinner, light bite and Sunday lunch trade. Average spend per head for a three-course meal with wine will be between £35 to £50, according to the chain.
Tom Martin, co-founder of ETM Group, said: “The Botanist on Sloane Square is one of our busiest London venues and the brand is ideally suited to the clientele of Broadgate and the City in general. We are delighted to be bringing this highly successful format to such a prominent and prestigious City location.”
