This custom made canopy has been designed and installed by us at the VQ 24-hour restaurant in Bloomsbury. The exceptional length of the canopy required some clever thinking by our engineers and the difficult installation was carried out with minimal disruption to the business. Covered in black awning fabric the custom made canopy has a full width valance to which the distinctive VQ logo and business related text has been applied. The frame has been powder coated in our own plant to match the fabric of this custom made canopy giving it a resilience to the environmental stresses of the high traffic environment.
The Bloomsbury VQ restaurant in Great Russell St, Fitzrovia brings 24-hour dining to the area. Breakfasts and brunches do brisk business, with eggs benedict, full English and omelettes alongside free tea and coffee refills. Throughout the day – and night – visitors can expect burgers, pasta dishes, superfood salads, dogs and steak frites. You can never tell when the “munchies” might hit you but at VQ any time is the right time.
Great Russell Street in Bloomsbury shares its location with neighbouring Fitzrovia and is best known for being the location of the British Museum. It runs between Tottenham Court Road and Southampton It is one-way between its western origin at Tottenham Court Road and Bloomsbury Street. It houses the headquarters of the Trades Union Congress which is located at Nos. 23-28 (Congress House). The street is also the home of the Contemporary Ceramics Centre, the gallery for the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain, as well as the High Commission of Barbados to the United Kingdom.
Neighbouring Fitzrovia is probably named after the Fitzroy Tavern, a public house situated on the corner of Charlotte Street and Windmill Street within the district. Until the end of the 19th century the area which now includes Fitzrovia belonged to the Duke of Grafton and his family; their surname is Fitzroy.
