Eccleston Place by Tart London will incorporate a restaurant focused on all-day seasonal dining, a retail space showcasing beautiful products and homeware discovered on Lucy and Jemima’s travels, and a large photography studio helmed by Tom Warren, founder of Lock Studios, offering a new central London shoot space for brands, and drawing in some of the world’s most important creatives to Victoria.
The various elements of Tart at Eccleston Place will open in stages from early summer beginning with the photography studio.
Speaking on the new venture Lucy and Jemima commented: “It’s always been our dream to open a permanent site, and we couldn’t have thought of a better place than nestled in historic Eccleston Yard.
“This is more than a restaurant, we want to create that sense of warmth and home in busy central London with a light space that marries food, fashion, lifestyle and photography, ‘the photographer’s kitchen.”
Tom adds: ‘I’m thrilled to be involved in this exciting concept with Tart London. It’s a unique opportunity to create a brand-new studio space bang at the heart of central London that’s close to a range of leading fashion houses. It’s also going to be one of the most amazing centrally located events spaces in London, with a capacity of 350 people seated.”
Housed in a former power station and coal store, the new restaurant and studio will retain the building’s original distinctive arched roof structure and skylights which date back to the 19th century.
The venture will be the flagship restaurant and lifestyle tenant of the new Eccleston Yards development by Grosvenor Britain & Ireland which will see a vibrant neighbourhood arrive at the intersection between Belgravia’s London village and busy Victoria.
Eccleston Place by Tart London will be opening summer of this year.
