Monocle To Open Luxury Cafe In London
A chic food and drink establishment in the UK's capital city will provide a place for the target audience of the publication to relax and connect.
Monocle is a London-based organization, founded in 2007, which spans across all elements of lifestyle and culture, from politics to fashion. It puts out 10 print issues a year, has an extensive online platform and launched a 24-hour radio station in October 2011. Now it's expanding its brand further with its plan to open a cafe in London.
The two-floor cafe, located in London's Marylebone district, will officially open April 15, is a step away from the company's headquarters in Midori House, and will offer patrons coffee from Allpress Espresso in Shoreditch, simple dishes and baked goods to eat in or take out. Roll cakes and macarons from Lanka, the pastry shop of erstwhile Le Gavroche chef Masayuki Hara, will be available. Visitors who already subscribe to the magazine will be able to reserve the downstairs area for events or large parties.
