The Argyle in London’s Diamond District Opens - Stonegate News
Monday 06 February 2012
The Argyle in Greville Street, formerly the King of Diamonds, has opened its doors after a two-week closure which has seen a radical transformation of the pub which situated in the heartland of London’s jewellery quarter.The pub, which is owned and operated by the Stonegate Pub Company, has undergone a significant investment giving the premises a traditional look with a modern twist.
The Argyle has three separate trading areas, all of which have been redecorated and refreshed with a new colour scheme and the introduction of new furniture and furnishings throughout. The cellar bar which is open from 5pm and can host up to 45 customers will now host the Argyle’s Quiz Night which starts at 6pm every Tuesday. The bar is perfect for private hire and with some extravagant flourishes dotted throughout including chandeliers and distinctive rugs.
The ground floor bar has a new colour scheme which has seen the bar flooded with light, the warm copper lighting coupled with the rich cream on the walls and feature wallpaper gives the pub a rich glow when the day turns to night. New furniture, reupholstered fixed seating and the restoration of the wooden floors give the pub a truly traditional welcoming feel.
The first floor of the Argyle hosts the Roof Terrace area, some call it a secret garden, which seats up to 70 people and combines both indoor and outdoor seating. The Terrace area has been completely updated with new furniture, new tiling and is set to be the place to celebrate summer. Until the warmer months start to make an appearance, customers can rest easy, and warm, underneath the awning and outdoor heaters.
Speaking about the refurbishment, Peter Forrest, manger of The Argyle said: “The team and I are delighted with how the pub looks and we’ve had some fantastic feedback from customers. The change of the name to the Argyle, the biggest diamond supplier in the world, maintains the pub’s connection with the diamond industry. “We’ve not only update the pub’s decor, we’ve also tweaked our offer including introducing a greater range of real ales and a number of money saving deals throughout the week.
“We’ll be offering London Pride and Doom Bar in the ground bar along with two rotating guest ales which at the moment are Sambrookes Wandle Ale and Redemption’s Hopspur. For the first time, we’ll be offering real ale in both the Terrace and Cellar bar which is great news for real ale lovers. We’ll be hosting a Monday Beer Club where the Argyle’s customers can get any pint of real ale for £1.99.
“Tuesday sees our Spice Night promotion where you can choose from a selection of curries and a drink for £7.99; two for one cocktails on Wednesday evening from 5pm and on Thursday night, our customers can order two dishes from the grill section of the menu and a bottle of wine for just £14.95.”
