The news comes after Forman's announced Speedo has hired its Cannes-themed venue for its Olympic base.

After each day of sport, Forman’s will recreate the nightclub atmosphere of the legendary soho jazz club, Ronnie Scott’s, with jazz, cocktails and late-night dining.

Ronnie Scott’s musical director, pianist James Pearson, the Ronnie Scott’s All Stars have performed with some of the greatest names in the history of jazz. 

Lance Forman, owner of Forman’s Fish Island, said: "This is the ultimate meeting of great food and great music, two London institutions coming together for a festival of fine dining and the finest jazz. I’m working on a new salmon cure for the occasion - look out for my Gravad-sax. Visitors to the Olympic Park can enjoy West End entertainment and delicious food just a five minute walk from the stadium. No queues, brilliant fun and with a taxi rank."

High profile performers are to be announced soon for the opening and closing ceremony nights.

Arthur Somerset, director of events at Forman’s Fish Island, said: "The West End goes East End – this is where the world will be."

Forman's will also run a Muhammad Ali-themed space during the 2012 Games.
