Diners at the new M restaurant in Canary Wharf will be able to feast on leading edge sound and vision technologies from Bang & Olufsen.

The brand has partnered with the award-winning culinary group, supplying the company’s third restaurant with AV technology.

The new M restaurant joins grill restaurants in Threadneedle Street and Victoria Street.

Extending over the ground and first floors of the 220-metre-high Newfoundland, M Canary Wharf, Bang & Olufsen is used extensively throughout the waterside venue, which takes design inspiration from vintage yachts found on the French Riviera.

The restaurant has 10 separate destination zones of audio that can play simultaneously or separately, comprising two Beosound A9 speakers, three Beosound Shape modular speaker systems, two pairs of Beolab 18 wall-mounted speakers, one pair of Beolab 50 active loudspeakers, and two Beovision Eclipse 4k OLED screens.

Also in place are 24 Celestial in-ceiling speakers, arranged in groups of two throughout the venue.

The custom install was designed by MADE Worldwide. The group also created a custom interface for M Canary Wharf, which is programmed into a tablet and can be used to control the audio throughout the entire venue remotely.

The 10,000 square foot René Decker-designed venue is encased in 360-degree floor-to-ceiling glass and is filled with teak and leather accents. Inside is a destination bar serving sensory cocktails, a 180-cover restaurant, two private dining rooms, a wine tasting room, the Taste of La Petite M café, and a private members lounge.

Once opened, M Canary Wharf will also host a weekly Saint-Tropez Beach Brunch with DJs, a unique Sensory menu that matches flavour and sound, and Sunday Movie Screenings, all in collaboration with Bang & Olufsen.

Founded by CEO Martin Williams and Culinary Director Mike Reid in 2014, M already boasts two celebrated international grill restaurants.

For Canary Wharf, Reid has created a menu that showcases M signature dishes and premium beef, while also transporting diners to Provence.

“Our shared desire to deliver extraordinary sensory experiences makes M Canary Wharf and Bang & Olufsen ideal partners. We’re confident that the combination of fine dining, exceptional architecture, and our innovative AV solutions will position M Canary Wharf as a destination venue of 2022, and for years to come,” said Scott Anderson, Bang & Olufsen’s UK Market Director.

“I have long admired the design, audio and visuals found in Bang & Olufsen products, and our brands have a shared passion for luxury and quality” says M CEO Martin Williams.

“Partnering with Bang & Olufsen to create a unique ‘gastro-playground’ venue, which celebrates and challenges the senses through immersive drinking and dining experiences will be a pioneering new venture that highlights the qualities of two wonderful brands,” he continues.

M Canary Wharf opens September 8 2022.
