D&D London is a group of diverse restaurants, bars and hotels based principally in London, but also with venues in Paris and New York. It was founded by Des Gunewardena and David Loewi (the eponymous D and D) in 2006, following a buyout of Conran Restaurants. Since then the company has become a vital player in London’s famous restaurant scene, owning some of the capital’s most celebrated restaurants, including Quaglino’s, Le Pont de la Tour, Bluebird and Coq d’Argent. East 59th occupies a prime site across the top floor in Victoria Gate. This Manhattan style rooftop bar and grill boasts a US-inspired all-day food menu with top quality cocktails to match. The terrace boasts an outside bar and BBQ, and the sleek, funky, minimalist design of the restaurant allows to a relaxed space perfect for a night cap. It can also transform into a hive of buzzing activity, taking inspiration from New York’s vibrant nightlife, and hosts regular DJ events for guests to dance the night away accompanied by stunning views of Leeds.
