Boxpark Unleashing Gaming, Food and Music Onto Bristol’s Dockside

Innovative hospitality giant, Boxpark, are set to transform an old dockside shed in Bristol into a trendy street food hall and live events venue.  

Where will BoxHall be?

With successful locations in Wembley, Croydon and Shoreditch, BoxHall Bristol is the company’s first venture outside of London. Taking over the historic O&M Sheds on Welsh Bank, the 20,000 sq ft venue will house restaurants, bars, gaming experiences and community space. It will also feature two terrace areas overlooking the waterside taking in views towards Bristol Bridge. 

What’s on offer at Boxhall?

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. Furthermore, 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 and live screenings. 

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. 

Why will BoxHall be special?

Boxpark CEO & founder Roger Wade said: “We are thrilled to announce our brand-new premium food hall concept launching in Bristol next year. 

“Bristol has such a proud independent spirit and the Welsh Back makes the perfect location for a beautifully-designed modern food hall, which champions local and independent traders and suppliers. 

“With BoxHall, we aim to offer an all-day social dining experience with food, drink and community-led events all under one roof, showcasing the best in local talent and artists.” 

Opportunities for prospective tenants include turn-key kitchen solutions with turnover-only licenses, meaning they can begin trading without the barrier of vast capital outlay. BoxHall will start tenant marketing in the later part of 2021, it said. 

What else is Boxpark up to?

Boxpark are working on opening more new sites in major cities around the UK. Places being considered include Birmingham, Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool, Glasgow and Edinburgh. 

There have also been murmurings that Boxpark are working on the launch of BoxOffice, offering co-working spaces within their Boxpark sites. 

So exciting times ahead for the Boxpark team and for the cities who will benefit from these great social hubs.
