Following the success of its Old Spitalfields Market launch last year, BOTTLES is venturing into West London with the opening of a new site on Draycott Avenue this December.
Bringing its signature Italian-inflected style to a new light and buzzy space, BOTTLES Chelsea will focus on microproducers, natural and fine wines alongside a relaxed and authentic food offering.
Having opened up sites in South and East London, Bottles Group founders Franco Mancini and Daniele Marano have continuously striven to share their passion for quality Italian food and wine by creating unpretentious environments that place the emphasis on discovering new wines, exploring personal tastes and revisiting old favourites.
Unlike its sister venues which are designed with an industrial and rustic aesthetic, the new Chelsea site will be the light and airy counterpart. The glass fronted 50-cover wine bar will feature a bespoke timber wine wall where guests can buy their favourite wines after indulging in dinner or a casual glass of wine.
Central to the room will be a weathered copper topped bar with seating set alongside a full glass cheese and meat display. The white and blue tiled bar/dining area, reflected by lagoon and ocean coloured hues of blue leather and copper finishes, is set beneath a central skylight which allows streams of natural light to pour into the restaurant.
Downstairs and within the kitchen itself, guests will find a “clandestine” dining room, perfect for private dinners and Italian supper clubs.
