Opening in December 2018, Boxpark Wembley will be the largest venue yet from the pop-up mall concept pioneers. The 24 shipping container style units will host an incredible variety of food and beverage vendors with recent sign-ups including GialloGrano, Kabab, Spice Shack, Zia Lucia, The Athenian, Ugly Dumpling, Thai Express and Smoky Boys.
New kids on the block GialloGrano will be joining Boxpark Wembley as a brand-new Italian street food concept and family run business, serving up high-quality, authentic pasta dishes. A modern take on everyone’s favourite post night out snack, Kabab will be offering up their gourmet kebabs and moreish halloumi fries at their first bricks and mortar site in Wembley Park. Wembley locals Spice Shack began as a family run kitchen and will be serving up their much-loved authentic Indian food. Independent pizzeria Zia Lucia will also be opening their doors at Boxpark Wembley, offering incredible pizza inspired by Italian home cooking.
No strangers to Boxpark, The Athenian will be bringing their traditional Greek souvlaki to Wembley Park following their success at Boxpark Shoreditch. Thai Express, already a huge hit at Boxpark Croydon, will be serving up tasty Thai street food to North London.
Boxpark are thrilled that London’s favourite dumpling joint Ugly Dumpling will be opening in Wembley Park, cooking up their famous fusion dumplings using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Halal BBQ and Grill Haus Smoky Boys will also be joining the ranks at Boxpark Wembley, serving up big flavours and high-quality meat dishes.
Living up to its Eat. Drink. Play. manifesto, the incredible selection of independent food and beverage units at Boxpark Wembley will be complemented by a 20,000 sq ft dedicated events space complete with algorithmic light installations.
The 2,000-capacity location will be the first fully indoor Boxpark, meaning the venue will be in action all year round. Shoreditch and Croydon hold regular events, from local markets to Stormzy’s album launch - Boxpark Wembley will be no different. Building on Wembley’s international reputation for hosting world-class music and sporting events, Boxpark will work with both local and established acts to offer a unique programme of live entertainment throughout the year.
Roger Wade, Founder and CEO of Boxpark, said: “Boxpark Wembley will create the ultimate fan experience for anyone watching a match or seeing a concert in one of the world-renowned venues we’ll have on our doorstep. You can expect a diverse selection of fantastic food vendors, from delicious local favourites to established Boxpark staples, and the electric atmosphere that Boxpark has become synonymous with.”
Famous for Wembley Stadium and the SSE Arena, Boxpark’s arrival in Wembley Park promises to provide locals and visitors alike with a world-class leisure and dining experience even on days when there isn’t a major event. In partnership with developers Quintain, Boxpark Wembley will drive footfall to the rapidly expanding area, solidifying Wembley Park as a cultural hub full of incredible restaurants and one-of-a-kind events.
