Mumford & Sons' Ben Lovett has announced details of his second London venue, Lafayette, opening next year.
Details of Lovett's second music venue arrives after the success of Omeara in Flat Iron Square.
The new 600-capacity venue Lafayette will be based in the heart of London's King's Cross, at the new Goods Way development.
Speaking about his venture into venues, Lovett explains, "A few years ago I embarked on a journey into the unknown with family and friends and launched Omeara at Flat Iron Square. We weren’t entirely clear how to achieve what we ultimately wanted, but we definitely knew what it needed to be and why we were doing it. I have had some of my favourite and most memorable experiences in Omeara since it opened back in late 2016, and I truly believe that the experience it has provided both fans and artists is something so important to London’s venue landscape."
Discussing Lafayette, Lovett adds, "It is with great pride that I can now share our plans to open Lafayette @ Goods Way which will be in the heart of King’s Cross, adjacent to Central St. Martins and Coal Drops Yard. I’m forever committed to pushing forward a new era of music venues that truly elevate people’s expectations of what that experience should be, and I believe London ought to continually strive to be at the forefront of the entertainment industry on a global stage, as the best city in the world. It’s still early days in the venue’s construction but, this time, not only do we know exactly what it will be and why we’re doing it, but we’re now extremely confident that we know how to deliver it too."
The new venue will host events booked by Communion, the same team that brings events to Omeara.
