JKS Restaurants is to launch Indian barbecue restaurant and drinking tavern concept Brigadiers at Bloomberg Arcade in the City of London on 6th June. Themed as an Indian army mess bars, Brigadiers will have 140 covers and 34 on a terrace. Live sports will be shown in select rooms, while pool and classic card games will be offered for those who wish to play while they eat and drink.
Designed by Brady Williams Studio, Brigadiers will feature seven individually styled rooms. The reception will feature a shoe-shine attendant and act as a gateway between Blighters, a restaurant and bar with booth seating flanking a central bar and sports screens, and the more intimate Dining Room, which leads into The Tap Room and The Pot Luck Room. The Pool Room will be the heart of the “club”, with a pool table, whisky-vending machine and self-serve beer taps. The Kukri Room and The Bidi Room will offer private dining. The menus will focus on Indian barbecue methods such as tandoors, charcoal grills, rotisseries, wood-fired ovens and smokers.
Drinks will include a monthly changing list of ten beers including collaborations with British brewers, while on-tap cocktails will include a Nitro Espresso Martini. Brigadiers will also showcase a global whisky list split into four tasting sections – smoky, delicate, light and rich. JKS Restaurants’ portfolio includes Michelin-starred Trishna and Gymkhana, Sri Lankan restaurant Hoppers and home delivery brand Motu. JKS has also partnered with independents such as Xu, Sabor and Bubbledogs.
