A fine dining concept offering dishes from across the Persian Empire is set to open at Brindleyplace
this year. Qavali, named after a style of Sufi devotional singing and originating from the Arabic word
qual meaning “to speak”, will offer a range of dishes inspired by Turkish, Arabic, Persian and Indian
The restaurant will open in the space previously occupied by Coast to Coast, and a fit out will begin
shortly. The 8,479 sq ft space will provide seating for up to 250 people once complete. It is expected
that Qavali will open to the public in 2021, depending on restrictions in light of Covid-19.
Creative Retail acted jointly with BWD on behalf of landlord Hines, while AMT Commercial acted for
FB Holdings to complete the deal.
James Campbell Adamson, Hines, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to offer a truly unique dining
experience at Brindleyplace, and can’t wait to hopefully see Qavali open its doors later this year.
“Brindleyplace has long been established as one of Birmingham’s premier leisure destinations and
this deal shows that confidence remains high that the estate remains a top choice for those looking
to run successful businesses in the industry. We’re looking forward to being able to welcome the
public back to the estate when it is safe to do so, and to see Qavali thrive and add to our culinary
Scott Robertson, director at Creative Retail, said: “We are delighted to have played our part in
bringing Qavali to Brindleyplace and believe this concept will represent an exciting point of difference
for the estate. FB Holdings have a proven track-record in adapting their venues to suit each location
to ensure success and I have no doubt they will complement the existing F+B offer.”
