Following the success of their first site in Chiswick, the one-stop shop for all your hair and beauty needs; Blo Bar, has now opened in Ealing’s Dickens Yard.

Priding themselves on delivering ‘a luxury experience guaranteed to invigorate and relax you’, the beauty bar has curated an offering to cater for women of all ages.  On arrival at your pamper station, you are provided with a Samsung tablet, as well as cupcakes, a selection of drinks including healthy non-alcoholic cocktails and smoothies.  Or if your appetite is not satiated by this, they can also order you food from the menus of some of the best restaurants in the area, collect and serve it to you, all whilst sitting in the luxury of your chair.  There is even an in salon crèche; perfect for the time strapped mothers of Ealing. 

The upmarket beauty bar is the latest addition to the development, following a wave of successful lettings, which include Charlotte’s W5, Triyoga and Kumon. With the likes of Darwin and Wallace, Gail’s, Pasta Remoli, Gymbox and Jigsaw soon to open their doors, Dickens Yard is cemented as the leading lifestyle destination in Ealing.

Bruce Gillingham Pollard are proud to act as the leasing agents, joint with Knight Frank, on behalf of St George on this development.



Nick Garston scales the Simien mountains in Ethiopia, in the name of Action Against Hunger
Today Nick Garston, director of Bruce Gillingham Pollard’s Tenant Representation department has scaled the Simien mountains in Ethiopia, in the name of Action Against Hunger.

The gruelling 4 day trek to the top, consisting of extreme altitudes of up to 4,300m, jagged peaks and rugged gorges was achieved alongside Sabor’s Nieves Barragan; The Dairy’s Dan Joines and Robin Gill; Bone Daddies’ Fran Astbury; Hammerson’s Sarah Fox; Kitchen Table’s James Knappett; Quality Chop House’s Shaun Searley; Hawksmoor’s Rosie Mira; Action Against Hunger’s Francine Heggie; and Breddos Tacos’ Chris Whitney.

So far Nick has received an incredible amount of support, reaching his target amount but additional funds would be most appreciated towards this incredible charity in their fight against global malnutrition, which effectively saves hundreds of thousands of lives each year.

Thank you from Nick and the Bruce Gillingham Pollard team.
Kym’s cements Bloomberg Arcade as the new dining destination in the City

Bloomberg Arcade has opened one after the other great restaurants, overshadowing the existing offering in the City and creating a new dining destination. Devised to meet the needs of the 3,500 Bloomberg staff and the immediate office catchment, whilst simultaneously attracting a new audience to the neighbourhood, the outcome has been a diverse line up of new names and concepts in the City. Operators include Ekte, Brigadiers, Vinoteca, Ahi Poké, Caravan, Homeslice, Bleeker St Burger and Koya.

The newest opening is the brainchild of Michelin star chef Andrew Wong, backed by White Rabbit Fund; Kym’s. Drawing contrast to his eponymous restaurant in Pimlico which is inspired by the 14 boarders in China, Kym’s is based on a 2,500 year old etching found on an ancient Chinese wall, depicting people roasting meats. The restaurant’s name pays homage to his grandmother Kym, his family and his original restaurant (A.Wong), when it was formerly owned by his parents under that name.

The new restaurant has received quite a reception, only yesterday it was given a 5 star rating by the Evening Standard’s Fay Maschler, a highly respected food critic and renowned for awarding very few the same distinction in the 45 years she has held the role. This may be an indication that Kym’s is in line to hold its own Michelin star.

In the same day, Bloomberg HQ won the 2018 RIBA Stirling Prize for the UK’s best new building. Contributing factors include it being the world’s most sustainable office, the largest stone building in the City of London and the creation of 3 new public spaces, achieving a unanimous decision that Bloomberg's new European HQ is a ‘monumental achievement’.

Bruce Gillingham Pollard were sole leasing agents for the restaurant units in Bloomberg Arcade.



Harry’s Bar opens in St Christopher’s Place

Yesterday saw the official opening of Harry’s Bar in St Christopher’s Place, the latest offering from Caprice Holdings who are known for some of London’s favourite hot spots; The Ivy, Sexy Fish and Annabel’s.

Since residing itself on South Audley Street in the 1970’s as a private members club, Harry’s Bar has recently expanded the brand to two further sites, this being the third. Maintaining its signature interior of 1950’s glamour, the stylish restaurant is perfect for breakfast, post-work drinks and dinner. Following the fare of it’s sister restaurant; Harry’s Dolce Vita, the new James Street site offers seasonal mouth-watering Italian dishes devised by Diego Cardoso, formerly of Angela Hartnett’s Café Murano.

Harry’s Bar cements an emerging hub of quality food offers on James Street which include Hoppers, Patty & Bun, Bone Daddies and soon to open Homeslice. Bruce Gillingham Pollard are currently letting 42/44 James Street, which will further enhance the streets ‘foodie’ credentials.

Bruce Gillingham Pollard were appointed in May 2018 on the leasing of both the A1 and A3 elements of St Christopher’s Place, and are working with BMO Estates to further strengthen the critical mass of quality independent brands from across the worlds of fashion, accessories and food.
