601 Queen’s Rd opens

After much anticipation, 601 Queen’s Rd has opened in Wimbledon.

Being the sixth site for bar group Darwin & Wallace, 601 Queen’s Rd is an independent neighbourhood bar that’s ‘more home than high street’.

They say, “A roof terrace full of light and breakfasts to wake up for, crafty beers and clever cocktails, plates to share or savour, and Saturday & Sunday DJs with the soundtrack to your weekend.”

As a bar first and foremost, at the heart of 601 Queen’s Rd is the circular bar populated with a carefully curated selection of wines, from Italian proseccos to crisp whites and deep reds. The bar also features a wide range of craft, draft and bottled beers as well as homemade lemonades in many flavours from rhubarb and apple to pink grapefruit and ginger.

The menu celebrates seasonal and locally sourced produce using artisanal ingredients and produce from its own kitchen gardens. Sustainability is at the heart of the menu, using British and local producers to create sumptuous dishes. Scratch-cooked on site, dishes vary from slow-cooked Sunday Roasts to Rotisserie Pineapple and Chilli Puddings, providing something for everyone to enjoy throughout the whole day.

With the largest terrace in Wimbledon, this new local hangout offer all-day dinning. The central circular bar is certainly a talking point and with the selection of seating options (including a ‘lounge’), there is something to suit all occasions.

Mel Marriot, Founder and Managing Director at Darwin & Wallace said: “We are delighted to have opened in the bustling heart of Wimbledon, a quintessential London village. The rarity of the space is incredibly special, the terrace which wraps around the space opens into the evening all year round. The bar is light with signature features. We have worked with our talented artisans and makers to bring 601 Queen’s Rd to life with bespoke furniture, hand-picked artwork, ceramic tiles, unique lighting, and so much more, forming its own unique version of the Darwin & Wallace address.”
