The Daisy Green Collection has announced the launch of its second City of London site, Barbie Green, set to open at the Barbican this December.
The group said the site will bring “award-winning Australian brunch, speciality coffee and an all new pizza offering” to the city.
Barbie Green will lie within the remains of St Alphage Church, which forms part of the original City of London Wall dating back to the second century, and the site aims to “perfectly encapsulate the characteristically Australian ‘outside in’ feeling” with the use of fully retractable glass windows that open onto an acre of garden space.
Four large ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ artworks will feature at the new site, alongside work from Grazie, Shuby and Paul Robinson.
It features “intimate” seating for 40 heads, as well as an “expansive” alfresco terrace.
Prue Freeman, founder and director of the Daisy Green Collection, said: “After a record year of trading, we’re delighted to round out 2019 with a stunning new site in the City, taking us back to 2012 where we started selling our coffee outside The Gherkin building.
“Our uniquely Australian all-day offering is continuing to defy the well-documented challenges facing the hospitality industry, as Londoners discover, embrace and support their local Daisy Green café more than ever.”
The Daisy Green Collection has 10 sites across London, and aims to “create iconic spaces which become local destinations and meeting points for surrounding residents, workers and visitors”.
