St John co-founder behind arts space and restaurant in London's Clerkenwell Green

Painter Jonny Gent, restaurateur and co-founder of St John Jon Spiteri and architect Russell Potter have teamed up to open Sessions Arts Club in an 18th century courthouse in London's Clerkenwell Green.

Opening in March the venue is designed to being together art, food and wine, and will incorporate a 60-cover restaurant led by Alex Vines, who has previously worked at 40 Maltby Street, Rochelle Canteen and Sardine, all in London.

Vines' menu will be devised around the seasonal bounty of farmers and growers leaning to British flavours in the winter and incorporating more Mediterranean influences over the summer months.

Events and exhibitions will also be held in the space hosted by figures working in the creative arts. Work by emerging and established will be shown with a yearly programme curated by gallerists David Southard and Darren Flook.
