Longmartin Properties Ltd, a joint venture between Shaftesbury and the Mercers’ Company, announces Gura Gura, a brand-new Asian bar and kitchen concept, has signed at 19 Slingsby Place, The Yards, for its debut restaurant within Covent Garden.
The 2,900 sq ft UK debut restaurant, due to launch in mid-October, will serve a mix of sushi, sashimi, dim sum and small plates, with highlights from the Wok menu including Lantern Chilli Prawns, Thai Style Basil Chicken and Bulgogi Style Beef. Set across two floors within the new and revitalised The Yards, Gura Gura will host 110 covers taking visitors from laidback afternoons to high energy nights.
A unique cocktail offering will be available with a walkthrough ‘wine tunnel’ at the entrance of the restaurant. Designed by Orphic Design Studio and founded by experienced restauranteur Gobind Chona, Gura Gura will be studded with Asian heritage, displaying a distinct and authentic interior.
This follows the latest news that over the summer months, The Yards will welcome back Persian-inspired ice cream brand, Darlish and become home to a dedicated Piaggio food truck. Contributing to the growing alfresco offering at The Yards, the Piaggio food truck will be used exclusively by existing restaurant tenants and create a rotating offering of takeaway street food within the destination.
CBRE is the asset manager on behalf of Longmartin Properties and Colliers and DCL acted for The Yards. Gura Gura represented themselves.
