The O2 has revealed a number of additional F&B operators to open under its famous roof, including Thunderbird Fried Chicken, Beer+Burger and Hook.
TriSpan-backed Thunderbird Fried Chicken will open a further bricks and mortar site within the venue’s main ‘entertainment district’, beside the newly-extended 19 screen Cineworld complex. It follows the news they are to open their first site in the former Pieminister restaurant in Brixton.
Joining them will be Beer+Burger, founded by brothers, Jonathan and Andrew Perritt, which will be the fifth opening for the business. While Hook, which started as a market stall in Dublin, will open their second London site, offering their ‘new school’ take on classic fish and chips.
The O2 recently announced a number of new flagship restaurants to open in the second phase of its recently opened 210,000 sq ft ICON Outlet development, including vegan concept by Chloe, China’s hot pot restaurant brand Hai Di Lao, and Mexican chain Benito’s Hat.
The new additions take the total number of bars and restaurants in the The O2 to 34.
Speaking on behalf of AEG and Crosstree Real Estate Partners, Marion Dillon, leasing director for ICON Outlet and The O2, said: “These latest additions bring an exciting food theatre to our existing food and beverage line-up at The O2, and together with the retail offer from ICON Outlet create an unrivalled and trend-led destination for our customers.”
Davis Coffer Lyons and Lunson Mitchenall are the F&B leasing agents for The O2. Richard Thomas now of Fleurets represented Hai Di Lao.
