Rhubarb Hospitality Collection has opened a new 20,000 square-foot multi-concept food and beverage destination in the heart of London.
The Market at 22 Bishopsgate features a brasserie called Market Kitchen, wine bar, food stalls and coffee bar and an outdoor café called Blend in partnership with The Gentlemen Baristas.
The contemporary and creative dining space on the second floor of 22 Bishopsgate, operated by RHC, showcases the group’s unique capability of managing multiple food and beverage disciplines under one roof, and has been collaboratively designed by DesignLSM, The Morris Project and AXA.
The concept is designed to embrace shared eating experiences, and prioritise sustainability and seasonality.
The Market comprises Blend, a specialist coffee bar in partnership with The Gentlemen Baristas; On Tap; a modern wine bar serving a selection of wine on tap; Residency, a regular changing concept that will also house chef partnerships, Patch, a healthy salad bar and, for something more substantial, Market Kitchen, a brasserie serving market fresh food in a casual yet contemporary environment, with adjoining outdoor terrace bar.
The 450-cover space will also host a range of pop-up residencies; supper clubs; as well as a cultural area supporting a dynamic programme of talks, music and private events.
Pieter-Bas Jacobse, CEO of Rhubarb Hospitality Collection, said: “We are thrilled to be overseeing the wider culinary offering and management of The Market. We are highly committed to The Market’s wellness certification to deliver nutritious and delicious food and drink options, handmade on site, and are pleased to have achieved this at an accessible price point. This space marks a new direction for RHC and we are incredibly excited to be a part of it.”
The Market is currently only accessible to the smart building’s 12,000 occupiers but plans to open to the wider public later in the year.
Rhubarb Hospitality Collection was founded 20 years ago and has an expert reputation for delivering unique dining and venue management at world famous locations, such as Sky Garden and the Royal Albert Hall and Hudson Yards, New York.
