Following their previous collaborations on Folly and The Lion, Gates Hospitality has teamed up with celebrated duo Nick & Scott (Nick Alvis and Scott Price) once more to create Verve Bar & Brasserie.
The new restaurant will open in mid-April at Grand Plaza Movenpick Media City, the first 5-star hotel to open in the area, and will essentially be a middle ground between the pub atmosphere of The Lion and the classy Folly.
Nick & Scott will have more of a hands-off role than in their other Gates Hospitality ventures, with chef Jorge Grande handling the day to day in the kitchen, but they have been intimately involved in Verve’s creation and will oversee its progress.
It will have a capacity of 80 people including two private dining rooms which can host up to 20 people, while the menu is focused on ‘less is more’ with “simple yet great food, using only the best and freshest produce from the land and sea”.
Verve will also introduce gourmet business lunch offers, personalised menus, bar snacks, live music events, and brunches, complemented by a centrepiece bar and open kitchen.
