Shelley Sandzer, the leading specialist UK leisure property agency, has acted on behalf of landlords Landsec and Schroders in a deal that will see contemporary Bierkeller, Munich Cricket Club, secure its second London location at West India Quay.
The Bavarian beer hall concept is headed by a father and son team, operating as part of Moonshine Bars. Following their London launch in 2016, the brand has selected this waterfront destination for their second-ever UK site. Munich Cricket Club will offer imported Munich beers along with authentic Bavarian dishes, served by staff in traditional dress.
The Port East building, at West India Quay, is an iconic Grade I listed heritage warehouse with a 200-year history, converted from a masonry and timber warehouse into a mixed-use leisure site. Munich Cricket Club will sit alongside brands including Pizza Pilgrims, Burger and Lobster, and Drake & Morgan, and its signing marks the letting completion of the scheme.
Tony Levine, Leasing Agent at Shelley Sandzer, added: “Our strategic advice has assisted Landsec and Schroders in completing the letting for this eye-catching leisure destination. Munich Cricket Club will sit perfectly next to the popular casual-dining traders at West India Quay – the brand is a perfect match for the area, with its high volume of office workers, and completes a great offer, one that our expert knowledge of London has helped to finalise.”
Daniel Rabin, speaking on behalf of West India Quay Ltd, a joint venture between Landsec and Schroder UK Real Estate Fund, added: “We tasked the Shelley Sandzer team with completing our West India Quay development, positioning it as an attractive destination for city workers. We wanted to breathe new life into the scheme with appealing brands which suit local demand, and Munich Cricket Club marks the final piece in the jigsaw.”
