Geronimo Makes a Splash on the Thames at the City’s Angel Lane

August 30, 2011

Pub operator Geronimo Inns, will open a new flagship site at global investment bank Nomura’s new headquarters at 1 Angel Lane in the City of London, to be known as The Oyster Shed.

Leisure advisor Davis Coffer Lyons has advised landlord Nomura on a new 20 year lease for Geronimo comprising 7,000 sq ft, at the riverside location which comprises a dedicated external terrace of 1,600 sq ft and 5.65m floor to ceiling curved glass frontage.

Nomura’s new headquarters, which opened earlier this year, is home to 4,200 staff on the north bank of the River Thames next to Cannon Street station. 3,300 workers from Mann Group and the Royal Bank of Canada are also in occupation at the next door office building.

Geronimo, which was acquired by Youngs at the end of 2010 is led by Rupert Clevely, and currently operates a further 26 sites across London, as well as the Red Barn in Lingfield, Surrey, and will shortly open The Cow in Westfield Stratford City next month. The Oyster Shed design is being created by Jo Clevely.

Alice Keown, Davis Coffer Lyons, said: “1 Angel Lane offers a really exceptional location for Geronimo’s newest site, with great views of the Thames and St Paul’s Cathedral. To complement the unique design of the three linking buildings, Geronimo will be creating a bespoke look for the premises as well as lots of differentiating aspects for the pub, to be announced in due course.”
