Sam Cotton, Head of Leasing at Battersea Power Station Development Company, said:
“Battersea Power Station has emerged as one of London’s leading food and drink destinations and this will only become stronger with the great mix of cafés, bars and restaurants opening inside the Power Station, creating thousands of new jobs for the immediate and wider local communities. We are delivering something incredibly unique for the capital and are confident visitors to Battersea Power Station will be excited by the variety of cuisines that will be on offer. We have an exciting year ahead of us as we countdown to the Power Station opening and further retail, leisure and dining concepts to announce, so watch this space!”
Stephen Tozer, Co-Founder of Le Bab, said:
“Housing one of our places in such an iconic, inspirational piece of architecture is a bit of a dream and we feel really lucky to be a part of the Battersea Power Station story. The Power Station and surrounding area feels like the biggest regeneration project that’s happened in the last decade that I’ve lived in London. I’ve actually been a neighbour to the Power Station for years and so I know first-hand just how huge this is going to be for this part of the capital. Seeing it all evolve and develop from the inside has been an incredible journey!”
Patricia Trijbits, Founder of Where The Pancakes Are, said:
“At Where The Pancakes Are we love being part of an exciting urban landscape and community. With two restaurants in quintessential London destinations, near Borough Market and Charlotte Street, to open our next one in Battersea Power Station is the stuff of dreams. It took guts and belief to build the station in 1929, it took guts and belief to resurrect it with even greater inspiration today. We’re immensely proud to have been invited to join this titanic masterpiece and will add our bit by doing what we’re really good at: nourishing pancakes, great coffees and uplifting cocktails.”
Mikey Pearce, Co-Founder and CEO of Clean Kitchen Club, said:
“This opening is incredibly huge for us and will definitely go down in Clean Kitchen history! We’re growing rapidly and to be included in Battersea Power Station’s restaurant line up, is a fantastic achievement for us and something we’re immensely proud of. Having grown up just across the river, opening a restaurant inside an iconic London landmark which I’ve seen transform into a new neighbourhood over the years is a real pinch me moment! Serving good tasting and healthy plant-based food is our heartland and we can’t wait to invite people through our doors at Battersea Power Station so they can taste what we have to offer.”
Matteo Pichi, Co-Founder and CEO of Poke House, said:
“I am thrilled to be opening Poke House in such a vibrant and inspiring location. Poke House is rapidly expanding throughout the world, with stores in five different countries and in each one we are preparing delicious, hand-made, healthy products giving our customers the option to dine guilt free. We believe Battersea Power Station is the perfect location for our store as we aim to be present where the next generations are spending their time.”
Toby Harris, CEO of State of Play Hospitality, said:
“We’re very excited to be opening a new Bounce in the Power Station which has to be the most eagerly awaited development in London of our lifetimes. The launch of Bounce in 2012 represented the start of the State of Play journey and it feels fitting than almost exactly ten years on we’ll be opening an all new version in an extraordinary setting.”
Once completed, Battersea Power Station will form the centrepiece of a new ‘15-minute’ live, work and play neighbourhood, which will act as a town centre for the immediate and wider local communities, a new business quarter for the capital and a leisure destination for Londoners and international visitors. The Power Station will be home to 254 residential apartments, over 100 retail shops, restaurants and cafés, including an 20,000 sq ft food hall, office and unique event spaces, as well as a Chimney Lift Experience offering 360° views from the top of the Power Station’s North West chimney.
The culinary experience will continue on a new high street, Electric Boulevard, which runs from the south of the Power Station, between the stunning Frank Gehry designed Prospect Place and Foster + Partners’ Battersea Roof Gardens. Electric Boulevard will offer a mix of bars and restaurants, office space, shops, a park, community centre and an exciting new 164 room hotel from art’otel®, the brand’s first hotel to open in London.
Circus West Village, the first chapter in the regeneration of Battersea Power Station, is already home to over 1,700 residents and more than 20 bars, restaurants, cafés, fitness and leisure offerings including Gordon Ramsay’s Street Pizza, Francesco Mazzei’s Fiume, The Turbine Theatre, Be Military Fit, DNA VR, Black Sheep Coffee, Boom Cycle and The Cinema in The Arches.
