Buddha Belly, the fledgling cocktail lounge and world buffet concept, is to open in London, after securing the site of the former Bar Risa/Jongleurs in Bow. The chain, which is set to open sites in Bromley and Maidstone over the coming months, secured a 9,000sq ft converted warehouse that is part of British Waterway’s mixed-use leisure development on Grove Road. Buddha Belly is understood to be looking at further opportunities to expand in the south east. Christie + Co acted on behalf of British Waterways.
