BoxHall Bristol: One Step Closer to vibrant food hall wonderland

Earlier this year hospitality innovators Boxpark announced that they had submitted a licensing application to transform an old dockside shed in Bristol into a trendy street food hall and live events venue.  That license has now been granted! Yippee!

The plan is to redevelop the historic O&M Sheds on Welsh Bank in the heart of Bristol city centre to create BoxHall. The 20,000 sq ft site will feature restaurants, bars as well as a community space. The location will allow the site to benefit from terrace areas overlooking the waterways and views towards Bristol Bridge. Furthermore, the development is likely to create 100 jobs.

It is expected that the BoxHall food court will be equipped with seven kitchens which will showcase the best local and independent food concepts, street food traders and suppliers. There will also be regular guest pop ups. Plus, the venue will welcome acclaimed Bristol-born chefs, celebrating food innovation at the forefront of the culinary industry. 

The community space will provide the ideal location for community-led events developed in partnership with local entertainers and artists. So, you can expect to have your calendar filled with great music, art shows, live screenings and gaming experiences. 

Boxpark Wembley is developing its social play offering having recently added Pop Golf and PlayBox to sit alongside Bad Axe Throwing and Meet Space VR. We’re excited to find out what exciting concepts will be brought in to BoxHall, once the tenants begin to take up their slots. 

Boxpark are working with Macaulay Sinclair on the interior design for BoxHall making sure the venue will be beautiful and modern. 

Recently Boxpark founder and CEO, Roger Wade met up with Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees at the site for BoxHall. Mr Reeves said, “Bristol’s O&M Sheds are one of the last remaining undeveloped buildings from the city’s historic industrial dockyard.

“BoxHall looks set to be an exciting, regenerated space that will create new jobs as we recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. This can be a real boost for Bristol’s economy that showcases our thriving food and drink offer and helps to make the harbourside fit for the future.”
