Front of House Bar

  • Full Time
  • London

Website Comptoir Gourmand

Artisan Patisserie

We have recently opened a small French traditional bakery on Bermondsey Street, London. This street is very particular, with a strong community living around and many offices in the art industry who likes a good breakfast, lunch and a glass of wine.

Our new site has been carefully designed to be transformed from day bakery into a wine and cheese bar the evenings. The concept we would like to create is: a typical French ‘apero’. The site being small and limited, the atmosphere would change into a cosy small wine bar in which customers would enjoy a glass of wine, some cheese and charcuterie before going to a restaurant – a typical ‘French apero’

The idea candidate would bring along a character of his own to create a destination in which customers would want to feel invited and wanting to come back in the future.
