Big Easy Covent Garden serves up the same Bar.B.Q-inspired home cooking, fresh East Coast lobster and live music as our original restaurant, but with a lot more room for celebrating. An easy-going local favourite, bringing the American Gulf coast to one of London’s most famous locations in the heart of the theatre district.
Our Covent Garden restaurant celebrates the building’s unique industrial heritage – it once powered Covent Garden’s electricity in 1887 and provided the first electric lights in Victorian theatre land. Skilfully fitted out using the massive steel beams that once supported the giant generators, Covent Garden is a true one-off. We’ve even dubbed the nine-metre long display kitchen ‘the wall of fire’.
Inspired by the melting-pot of cultures found in the American Gulf Coast, our impressive 10-meter bar is where we create the drinks list we always dreamed of. Boasting over 550 bottles of spirits, our world-famous frozen Margarita machines with boozy juices, grown-up milkshakes and cocktails on tap. Not forgetting our great list of craft beers, including our exclusive Big Easy brew. This is where the party is.
The Rum Bar & Lounge
The Rum Bar and Lounge is our re-imagination of Jamaica’s Port Royal in 1700, but with sweeping views of Canary Wharf rather than Kingston. With live music every night, rum drinkers will enjoy casks on tap and over 100 bottles of unique varieties, some of which are very old and rare. It’s a dose of sunshine and the perfect spot to unwind after work.
During off-peak times, the Rum Bar is open for seated guests but drinks will be served from the front bar.
Our largest and most flexible space, Big Easy Canary Wharf is the perfect location for big, easy-going events. We can accommodate up to 750 guests or you can book the bars, terrace or one of three private dining bays. We even have our own stage, state-of-the-art sound equipment and excellent IT infrastructure for screenings and presentations.
Join the Captain’s Table
For intimate events, the Captain’s Table offers a unique private dining experience for up to 26 people. The fun space is inspired by the panelled dining rooms found on 17th Century tall ships, with an 8-metre long oak table, carved chairs and vintage chandeliers. The space even comes with a private dining terrace, with sweeping views of Canary Wharf.
