What they say:
The ever popular 24-hour bar and diner is set to open its second venue in Bloomsbury, occupying the bottom floor of the St. Giles Hotel. The latest venue will be almost twice the size of the original, but will retain the features that made its sister bar so popular, such as its late night alcohol licence and food menu. Managing Director Simon Predeaux says that whilst it is important that every VQ site has its own original character, there will be an element of continuity in design and branding that will extend to the Bloomsbury site.
What we say:
The original Vingt Quatre Chelsea has long served as a saving grace to many late night revellers in need of ballast after a heavy night of fun. The new Vingt-Quatre in Bloomsbury is set to do the same, keeping hold of their ever popular late night and daytime menus, but this time without the 24 alcohol licence. With a view to 'put the fire out', rather than fuel it any further, Vingt-Quatre Bloomsbury will only serve alcohol between 8am and 2am, with food served throughout the day and the night - if you didn't make it to Vingt-Quatre on your way home, you can always battle the hangover with an afternoon brunch the following day.
