Boki to join line-up at Seven Dials
Boki is to open a coffee shop in London’s Seven Dials shopping district. The brand will launch the outlet in a 1,300 square foot space at 20 Earlham Street.
Founded in 2014, Boki opened its first café in 2015, working with Allpress coffee, T2 tea, and London based food and drink producers.
The debut Boki site was shortlisted for the 2015 Restaurant and Bar Design Awards. Its new Seven Dials location will be designed by Moscow based design firm, Melspace.
The new shop will look to create an all-day social hub on Earlham Street attracting local businesses as well as capitalising upon the high footfall of shoppers and theatre goers.
Kim Mahony Hargreaves, co-founder at Boki, said: “We are delighted to be launching our concept at such a prestigious London location. Situated amongst other excellent cafés and food destinations, this will be the ideal venue to launch.”
News of the store follows the recent opening of tea specialist My Cup of Tea at Seven Dials. The new 1,400 square foot shop, which is My Cup of Tea’s second location in the UK, features a classic tea counter at the rear where loose teas and tisanes are sold by weight and displayed in steel scoops and apothecary jars. The unit also houses a café and tearoom.
Addy Williams, retail leasing and strategy surveyor at Shaftesbury, said: “Boki will add another eye-catching new café with a really attractive design concept. My Cup of Tea has already been trading well and attracting visitors who are curious to see their unique offer. Both brands provide visitors with a haven to relax and drink in the atmosphere whilst at Seven Dials in the heart of the West End.”
Seven Dials is home to over 150 shops as well as over 50 cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs. The area comprises of Monmouth Street, Earlham Street, Neal Street, Shorts Gardens, Neal’s Yard, Endell Street, Shelton Street, Mercer Street and the Seven Dials monument.
