The newest addition to the group’s portfolio will be located within the four-star Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel, overlooking Poole Bay. The classic and contemporary space will span 3,500 square feet, offering 108 covers across four inter-connecting dining rooms, a spacious 70 cover bar and an additional 42 covers on the terrace; all with views of the sea.
The space will include the brasserie’s signature Anthropologie etched Arcadia mural wallpaper, reclaimed oak parquet floors, bespoke velvet and leather banquettes, art deco-style lighting; deep buttoned sofas; and a feature log-burner in the bar. A large library will accommodate Brasserie Blanc’s private dining area for up to 30 people, furnished with vintage leather wingback chairs, oak library tables and a mustard velvet chesterfield sofa.
Mark Derry, CEO of Brasserie Blanc, comments: “We are delighted to be opening our 20th site and partnering with Marriott to launch Brasserie Blanc in Bournemouth. This is an exciting new phase for Brasserie Blanc’s development. The bar, brasserie and terrace will be absolutely stunning and this is an exciting opportunity for us to scale up and run the full F&B for the 160-room hotel.”
This partnership marks the beginning of a new stage in the restaurant group’s evolution and Brasserie Blanc will seek further opportunities in the hotel sector as the brand moves forward.
