Boxpark, the dining, retail and leisure group, has confirmed its first site outside of London, with the launch of sibling concept BoxHall in Bristol, scheduled for summer 2022.

The group has agreed a lease for the harbourside location at Welsh Back Bristol’s O&M’s sheds, which will house its first BoxHall site.

The new F&B-led concept will have a modern food hall structure, with premium cuisine from local, independent street food traders and restaurant operators in Bristol.

The 20,000 sq.ft venue will house seven kitchens, and two external terraces overlooking the waterside.

Alongside food, BoxHall Bristol will also provide a programme of events with local artists, as well as gaming experiences.

This development is being delivered by Cordwell Property Group, and Boxpark has partnered with Macaulay Sinclair, who have previously worked with Hawksmoor and Dishoom, to deliver the interior design proposals.

BoxHall is part of the group’s wider expansion plans to roll out a mixture of sites both inside and outside of London.

Boxpark CEO & founder Roger Wade said: “It has been an incredibly difficult year but we remained optimistic during the pandemic and used the time to progress our expansion plans. Our team has worked extremely hard to secure our first site outside of London and this is a huge milestone for the Boxpark family.

“Now that we’ve signed for the lease on this location, we will be working closely with Macaulay Sinclair on the interior design. Boxpark has always been an innovator in the F&B industry and this new development demonstrates our investment in continuing to evolve both the brand and the sites we build and operate in.”
