Published: Wednesday, February 23, 2022
Wandsworth Council has welcomed Battersea Power Station's announcement of the first wave of eateries set to open their doors inside the iconic building from September, which will bring hundreds of jobs to the borough.
From September 2022, visitors can enjoy a mix of British and international cuisine with the likes of Le Bab, Where The Pancakes Are, Poke House, Clean Kitchen Club, Paris Baguette, Joe & The Juice and Starbucks®.
The new offerings of eateries will complement the 14 bars and restaurants at Circus West Village, including authentic Malaysian restaurant, Roti King, which will be opening its doors in the coming months.
Councillor Ravi Govindia, Leader of Wandsworth Council, said: “We are thrilled to welcome more businesses into Wandsworth at their new home in Battersea Power Station. After ten years of hard work to restore the Power Station to its former glory, seeing businesses committing ahead of its opening is an exciting moment for the area.
“What was once a piece of derelict land is set to become a thriving new town centre thanks to the arrival of the Northern Line Tube link and opening up this iconic building, bringing hundreds of new jobs and opportunities for local residents as well as a new Wandsworth destination for shopping and leisure.
“The wider regeneration of Nine Elms is delivering 6.5million square feet of employment space and 25,000 post-construction jobs so do get in touch with Work Match to be first to hear about new vacancies and training.”
Following the opening of Street Pizza in Circus West Village at the foot of the Power Station, Gordon Ramsay will also be opening Bread Street Kitchen & Bar inside the Grade II* listed building.
Battersea Power Station's food and drink offering will be located in the historic Turbine Halls and Boiler House. A c20,000 sq ft Food Hall offering an all-day dining experience will also be opening in the Boiler House.
The Power Station has enlisted State of Play Hospitality’s, Bounce, ‘the home of ping pong’ in Turbine Hall B as part of its leisure offering and these newly announced brands will join a strong line-up of retailers already set to open their doors at Battersea Power Station next year, including Ralph Lauren, MAC Cosmetics, Space NK, Watches of Switzerland and Jo Malone.
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!”
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.
