The new bar, which will be run by Sanjay Daryanan, will serve fine wines, spirits, selected champagnes and cocktails plus beers and cider.

Sanjay said: “Eden Bar & Garden has been transformed from a poor empty retail unit to a quality mezzanine bar and garden with an industrial concept serving a great range of drinks.

"The development has taken place over the past 12 months and has been lovingly restored including many of the original historic and quirky features of the building.

"Eden Bar & Garden will be opening its doors on 53 Eccleston Street this Thursday. There will be both outside seating areas to the front and rear of the bar.

"The rear 'secret' garden will be simple garden area that will be developed over the coming months as the season changes and grows organically.

"Eden Bar & Garden will provide a quality friendly experience and look forward to bringing this great bar to the area”.
