The Boxer brothers know a thing or two about opening buzzy spots in the city – Jackson runs Orasay in Notting Hill, Frank is the founder of Frank’s Cae in Peckham and the pair launched Brunswick House in Vauxhall together – and now they’re teaming up once again for below Stone Nest. The dive bar is opening in the basement of the building run by arts organisation Stone Nest on Shaftesbury Avenue (it used to be Limelight nightclub back in the day).
The guys are keeping things simple with the drinks menu; there’ll be a low-intervention house white and house red, an orange wine, a rosé, a cava and a Champagne on offer, alongside a rotating selection of special bottles from the Brunswick House cellar, and a few cocktails, beers and softies. Stone Nest is working with guest curator Tic from the Young record label on the music programme too, so this is shaping up to be one cool spot.
Opens Weds 20th October 2021
136 Shaftesbury Avenue, London W1D 5EZ
