The team at London's WC Clapham pub will open a second wine bar in Bloomsbury, in a Grade II listed Victorian public lavatory.

The Bloomsbury-based wine bar, which will officially open next month on London"s Conti Street, will offer sharing boards and small plates in addition to wine and cocktails.

The 120-year-old public facility, known as the Thoughtfully Restored Underground Space, has been restored and the interior retains its original wooden stalls, which are now used as bookable booths. The original tile and marble floors have also been preserved, and on the walls hangs a picture of local philanthropist Colonel Thomas Coram, who is located behind the nursery.

The word WC ostensibly means restroom, but it actually stands for wine and charcuterie. Both will be sold at Bloomsbury's wine bar, along with cheese, pickles and vegetarian alternatives.

Co-founder Jayke Mangion says:We are very excited to be opening a wine bar in Bloomsbury. It's a project we've been working on behind the scenes for a while, so it's really exciting for us to see it come to light We have an amazing partner in Conti Street, London too! We've worked hard to create a welcoming place in an unexpected and unique space. No pretense, no ego, just honest prices. We want everyone to have a great time in a relaxed, simple environment.

In 2014, Clapham Wine Bar, founded by Mangion and Andy Bell, will also reopen next month.
