You better get ready for some seriously cool, seriously chic and a seriously amazing experiance. Aqua restaurant group is coming to London. It has already shaken up Hong Kong with 10 high-end restaurants, the Michelin-starred Hutong among them.

Their first project outside China will open this autumn atop one of London’s most iconic buildings, the former Dickins & Jones department store on Argyll Street.

Designed by the Group’s owner and managing director David Yeo Aqua London’s mission is to revitalise dining in London by blending ‘cutting edge cuisines and über-chic interiors.’

David Yeo: “Our team is very excited about opening its first restaurant in London. Like our venues in Hong Kong and Beijing, we hope that aqua london will prove a hit with locals and visitors alike. It will combine great food that lets the flavours and freshness of the produce speak for themselves – with approachable service and an exquisite ambience – qualities that have always been at the fore of all our restaurants.”

Aqua will consist of two very different dining spaces, Aqua Nueva which will offer contemporary and authentic northern Spanish dishes and Aqua Kyoto which be the ‘epitome of Japanese cool transported out of the district of Ginza’, with a sushi bar and sumibiyaki charcoal grill. But if you don’t feel like sitting down in one of the two dining areas there is Aqua Spirit which is promising to become one of London’s hippest bars and will make an ideal spot for a few pre-dinner drinks or late nightcaps. And just to top it all off the views across the capital that are possible from this venue are breathtaking.

We are eagerly awaiting this venues opening. Bring on Aqua London.

Opening late this Autumn Aqua London, 5th Floor, 240 Regents Street, London, W1B 3BR Entrance at 30 Argyll Street, London, W1F 7EB
