Seven Dials Market launches in London
A new all-day undercover dining and events destination has launched in London’s Seven Dials shopping district.
Featuring 25 independent food businesses, Seven Dials Market also includes a bar and bookshop dedicated to all things food related.
Serving breakfast through to dinner, operators include cheese conveyer belt Pick & Cheese, vegan street food by Club Mexicana, Jewish deli Monty’s Deli, seafood restaurant Claw, and pasta restaurant Strozapretti. In addition, artisan produce from London will be on offer along the scheme’s Cucumber Alley.
For the bar, Seven Dials Market’s founder KERB has partnered with East London Liquor Company and Gipsy Hill Brewing Company.
Petra Barran, founder of KERB, said: “After seven years of creating and supporting a community of food traders to thrive on the streets of London, we are incredibly excited to be taking the next step for KERB. Seven Dials Market has been a long-standing dream of ours and a complete labour of love for myself and all the team. Our ambition is to build not only a home for excellent, independent food businesses to grow, but a welcoming, open space for everyone to enjoy a big slice of London.”
The scheme is housed in Thomas Neal’s Warehouse which was built in the 19th century to store cucumbers and bananas.
During the opening week, London music venue Roundhouse is putting on a series of live music performances by emerging artists from its Resident Artists Programme.
Julia Wilkinson, group restaurant strategy executive at Shaftesbury, said: “The opening of Seven Dials Market has brought something very special to Seven Dials. The line-up of operators is interesting, innovative and diverse, and the building itself also plays a key role. The design allows the character of Thomas Neal’s Warehouse to shine through, adding to the atmosphere and experience for visitors. Without doubt, Seven Dials has a new heart, which means the West End does too.”
