Fabled whisky shop and bar concept Milroy’s has secured its second London site – 55 years after it was established.
Milroy’s is London’s oldest whisky specialist, starting in 1964 with an initial whisky shop on Greek Street, Soho, with a history of delivering to the biggest names in the capital, with former prime minister Harold Wilson and actor Michael Caine among its customers.
Shelley Sandzer has secured the London-based whisky brand launch its second site in Spitalfields this September.
Opening on 76 Commercial Street, a 140-capacity venue spanning four floors, the site will have a bar with the UK’s largest selection of whisky, a cocktail bar, and an exclusive members’ bar and tasting room, as well as a roof terrace.
Martyn Simpson, managing director of Milroy’s, said: “We believe whisky is for everyone, taking away the pretension and stigma, as the Milroy’s brothers did when they first brought single malt to london. This new site will showcase our true passion.”
Etai Page, Leasing Agent at Shelley Sandzer, added: “With members’ clubs becoming increasingly popular within the capital, it was important to find a location that would allow this great brand to capture its target audience. This vibrant part of East London is perfect.”
Shelley Sandzer has recently acted for Duddell’s, Honey & Smoke, and Arcade Food Theatre.
