A SCOTTISH restaurant with its own cigar club and a large collection of whisky will open in Canary Wharf next year creating 125 jobs.
The Boisdale restaurant will open at a site overlooking Cabot Square in January 2011 after a �2.7 million development project.
The restaurant will seat up to 430 diners over two floors and a terrace and will create 125 jobs as waiters, chefs and bar staff.
The restaurant chain was founded by Ranald Macdonald in 1988 and already has branches at several sites in London including Bishopsgate and Belgravia.
Mr Macdonald said: "Canary Wharf represents one of the fastest growing and sophisticated markets in the world but we found workers still wanted a restaurant with a little more tradition.
"It will have a-state-of-the-art ventilated cigar club and big smoking terraces, London's largest collection of whisky, a selection of private dining rooms and nightly performances from some of the world's leading jazz, blues & soul musicians.
