The Royal Opera House - Covent Garden
The aim of this project was to create a 200-seat restaurant within the restricted space of the Paul Hamlyn Hall Balcony a first-floor inner balcony, with breathtaking views of the stunning interior architecture of the magnificent Opera House.
KCCJ managed the entire project which included:
Removal of existing counters, manufacture and installation of bespoke hot counter, cold counter and coffee counters, and alterations to existing Amphi Bar to create raised curved glass display area
Existing counters were ripped out within the three week period of the summer shut-down. A minor delay while new floor finishes were laid meant a tight schedule to meet the deadline. Bespoke hot, cold and beverage counters were manufactured with specialist granite tops and rimex fascias, serving as additional plating-up space for the chefs preparing meals for Opera House guests during the interval.
The Amphi Bar was refurbished with new carving and the addition of a feature display section. Diners are able to enjoy a sumptuous dinner, with separate courses eaten pre-performance and during the interval.
Technologically-advanced commercial kitchen equipment, including combination ovens, specified and supplied by KCCJ, copes with production of high-quality food and beverages within very limited time scales, enabling the Royal Opera House to increase revenue at each performance.
What the Client said,
"I would have no hesitation in recommending KCCJ and would like to thank them for their work and their attention to detail."
