A space for colleagues and clients to meet and relax.

As part of their in-house hospitality offer MCM were asked to explore options to add a wine bar to the ground floor of Howden’s London HQ at One Creechurch Place.

Named Dave’s after the firm’s founder and Group CEO David Howden, the space offers unique pairings of wine and local, seasonal food that are always traceable, often back to David’s own Cornbury House Farm in Oxfordshire, proving that farm to fork is possible and championing British produce and outstanding local suppliers.

David Howden is no stranger to the world of hospitality having previously established Michelin Pub of the Year 2018; The Pointer in Brill, to showcase his passion for friends, food and sustainable farming. It’s this passion that means Dave’s is not just another City establishment but one that will inspire a combination of nostalgia and excitement for customers, in an atmosphere of warmth and fun.

The design of the compact space includes some high touch finishes including glazed lava stone tiles to the bar front, a curved marble bar top and a double height smoked oak and bronzed mirror wine display.
The end result is an elegant hospitality space which caters for both members of the public to enjoy this tucked away corner of the City and for Howden employees to have a space to relax, socialise and build new connections.
