Mikkeller Brewpub London
Just one year after the spectacular opening of Mikkeller Bar London in Shoreditch – Mikkeller's first London location – Mikkeller and Rick Astley opened a brewpub in Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell. The two-floor brewpub contains a bar and restaurant, as well as a brewery that can produce 7.5 hectoliters of beer at a time. The in-house brewery supplies the bar with completely fresh beer and infuses the space's 264 square meters with the comforting aroma of malt and hops.“London is a fantastic city with a great brewing scene and many new, young breweries, and we are really looking forward to becoming a part of it,” said Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, founder and owner of Mikkeller, at the opening.
The Mikkeller brewpub is based around the simple notion that it is a space where beer and food are both crafted and enjoyed; it's a space where loud laughter seems to be the norm instead of hushed small talk. The space embraces a raw, industrial feel while simultaneously surprising guests with quirky details, cozy design elements, and a strong sense of the Mikkeller DNA. This is achieved through the use of high-quality materials mixed with a sublime design execution.
“This is not a restaurant with a brewery, it is a brewery with a restaurant,” emphasizes Caroline Engelgaar, Creative Director of Femmes Régionales, who once again has been in put in charge of the interior design.
