Contemporary Bierkeller, Munich Cricket Club has secured its second London location at West India Quay, through Shelley Sandzer agency, which acted on behalf of landlords Landsec and Schroders.
The Bavarian beer hall concept is headed by a father and son team, Tom and Robbie Gill. Following their London launch in 2016, the brand has selected this waterfront destination for its second UK site. Munich Cricket Club will offer imported Munich beers along with authentic Bavarian dishes served by staff in traditional dress, with a weekly live Oompah band.
The Port East building, at West India Quay, is an iconic Grade I listed heritage warehouse with a 200-year history, converted from a masonry and timber warehouse into a mixed-use leisure site. Munich Cricket Club will sit alongside brands including Pizza Pilgrims, Burger and Lobster, and Drake & Morgan, and its signing marks the letting completion of the scheme.
Tony Levine, Leasing Agent at Shelley Sandzer, said, “Our strategic advice has assisted Landsec and Schroders in completing the letting for this eye-catching leisure destination. Munich Cricket Club will sit perfectly next to the popular casual-dining traders at West India Quay – the brand is a perfect match for the area, with its high volume of office workers, and completes a great offer, one that our expert knowledge of London has helped to finalise.”
Daniel Rabin, speaking on behalf of West India Quay Ltd, a joint venture between Landsec and Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, added, “We tasked the Shelley Sandzer team with completing our West India Quay development, positioning it as an attractive destination for city workers. We wanted to breathe new life into the scheme with appealing brands which suit local demand, and Munich Cricket Club marks the final piece in the jigsaw.”
