BBQ and lobster lovers will have to wait that little bit longer for Big Easy Bar.B.Q and Lobstershack to open in Canary Wharf as the launch date has been moved to early November.

However, the team have released more details about what to expect at the venue - which will be the largest one to date.

It will have a 400-cover restaurant with a 150-cover outdoor terrace in the Roof Garden, a rum bar and a whiskey bar and nightly live entertainment.

The venue will serve up an all-American breakfast menu from 7am, provide afternoon tea with European and American cakes, weekend brunch and take away options.

Pit Master supremo Jared Male (ex Hill Country BBQ), will be manning one of UK’s largest pit rooms, housing three enormous two tonne US built smokers. There will also be a 14 metre open kitchen.

An 18 metre wraparound bar will be split into The Main Whiskey And Beer Bar and The Rum Bar And Lounge Cocktail Bar. At the rum bar there will be 100 varieties of the spirit - with casks of it on tap. At the whiskey bar more than 500 bottles of whiskies and bourbons will be on display.

The bar area will also feature the most expensive cocktail shaking machine in the world. It is one of only 10 out there, created from an original 19th century etching.

Designers for the Crossrail venue aimed to pay homage to the location and period in British history, focusing on the East India and West India Docks which opened in 1802 almost on the very site that Big Easy now occupies.

Within the 26-seater private room (with access to its own private terrace) guests will get a hint of Captain Jack Sparrow, who preyed on the cargoes in the 17th and 18th centuries.

Online the countdown date is still pointing towards opening on October 29, so fingers crossed we may see Big Easy a little earlier.
