New opening: the Canary Wharf venue will offer a plethora of drinks
Independent group Darwin & Wallace is opening its first venue in Canary Wharf, east London, this year (November).

Located on the side of the dock by Mackenzie Walk, the new site will have a feature bar, soft-furnished lounge and private dining spaces alongside a south-facing waterside terrace with seating for up to 170 guests.

It will serve more than 40 handpicked wines, a selection of craft, draught and bottled beers, soft drinks as well as long and short-serve cocktails.

Sustainability in mind

The Darwin & Wallace collection of bars in London includes:

No 11 Pimlico Road (Chelsea, south-west London)

No 32 The Old Town (Clapham, south-west London)

No 1a Duke Street (Richmond, south-west London)

No 197 Chiswick Fire Station (Chiswick, west London)

No 29 Power Station West (Battersea, south-west London)

601 Queen’s Rd (Wimbledon, south-west London)

No 17 Dickens Yard (Ealing, west London)

There will also be a locally sourced all-day food menu with sustainability in mind, which will also feature a mindful selection of produce, plating and portion control, all being used in a bid to minimise wastage.

Darwin & Wallace managing director Mel Marriott said: “Our eighth site in a tremendous waterside location in the heart of Canary Wharf marks another exciting chapter for us as we move east, continuing our aspiration to create uniquely designed bars with a home-from-home aesthetic that forms the perfect backdrop for socialising from morning coffee to nightcaps, and everything in between. 

“We are proud to have been invited to become part of Canary Wharf life and look forward to opening in the autumn.” 

City landscape

Since opening its first venue – No 11 Pimlico Road in 2013, Darwin & Wallace has opened a further six sites in London boroughs across the south and west of the capital.

Each bar aims to be intricately designed, unique to its location to reflect the surrounding city landscape.
