The restaurant has been developed within the landmark 18th Century grade 1 listed Quakers Friars building, a short walk from Cabot Circus. The restaurant, bar and outdoor terraces will be open all day and will serve classic food paying homage to the dining scene of grand mittel-European cafes.
Customers will experience a restaurant spread over two floors connected by a central staircase and an island bar which will be the centrepiece of the ground floor.
The restaurant interior has been designed by designers, Design LSM and will feature artwork by a collection of artists from Studio 2C Art consultancy. Inspired by the Bristol-Hannover connection, the artwork inventively mixes the earthy tones of early industrial imagery, with the rich colours of Renaissance and Old Masters portraits.
Des Gunewardena, chairman and CEO of D&D London, said: “Quaker Friars is an absolute gem of a building and I hope that Klosterhaus will bring it to life.
“Bristol has a very exciting foodie scene and I hope that we can contribute to and become part of it. We are very pleased to be working again with Hammerson and are very supportive and enthusiastic about their plans for the overall development of Quakers Friars.”
Robert Hobbs, general manager at Cabot Circu, said: “We’re delighted to welcome D&D’s new restaurant and bar, Klosterhaus, to Cabot Circus and the City of Bristol. Klosterhaus, will open Friday 2 October in the beautiful listed Friary building in Quakers Friars, which has been sympathetically restored inside to create a stunning new dining and bar experience in the heart of the city.
“It will definitely be the place to get those perfect Instagram shots. As well as a new dining experience for the city, the menu at Klosterhaus looks incredible; serving locally sourced produce which I am sure will go down well in our foodie city. We’re extremely pleased to be able to bring yet another premium brand to Cabot Circus and the city this year.”
