What’s the betting that during next Wimbledon Championships the place to catch sight of the tennis stars won’t be somewhere shishy in Wimbledon Village, but down the hill at Darwin & Wallace’s latest opening?
Upmarket pub chain Darwin & Wallace specialise in quintessential village pubs and already have a presence Chelsea, Clapham, Richmond, Chiswick and Battersea with successes like No 1a Duke Street and No 197 Chiswick Fire Station which have both won accolades as ‘Best Pub’ at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards. Their latest opening, in Battersea Power Station’s Circus West Village, dubbed with the utilitarian No 29 Power Station West name.
And though their latest pub has yet to be christened, given every other pub in the chain has is named after the address it’s a pretty good bet that it’ll be called whatever-number-it-is plus The Broadway.
The vibe is going to be distinctly Scandinavain, with Hygge inspirations drawn from Copenhagen but also resonating with the local area, and celebrating Wimbledon’s culture and heritage. We’re promised that the Wimbledon site will also serve a range of local craft and international beers and lagers, with a ‘well-considered wine selection’.
Either way, we can’t wait until the first pints are pulled in the spring and will be camped out at the SW19 joint, ideally on the ample terrace that’s promised, come Wimbledon finals in summer.
