What they say:
The team at Drake and Morgan have set their gaze on Principal Place in Shoreditch as the site of their next venture. The Allegory is set to open in October and will stick to the family mantra of serving an all-day menu of food, accompanied by hand-crafted cocktails and fine wine. The venue will cater for around 145 people at one time and will boast its own outdoor terrace that's perfect for those looking for a serene place to unwind after work.
What we say:
Drake and Morgans have gone from strength to strength and show absolutely no sign of slowing down. Now opening their 22nd site, the details that have emerged about The Allegory seems to suggest the chain has no intention of shifting from its proven formula. After all, why would they change things? We're certain the cocktails will hit the high standard of The Allegory's sister sites and the all-day menu will draw in a variety of different customers throughout the day. But the real measure of success will be the new site's atmosphere. If the team can recreate the same carefree vibe that's come to define their other restaurants and bars, we think The Allegory will be onto big things.
