Events Coordinator


Description

Please note this role requires an immediate start and is an eight week fixed term contract.


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.

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.

Paternoster Chop House, formerly known as the First Dates restaurant, is now located just a stones throw away from St Paul’s Cathedral.
