The O2 welcomes four new F&B additions

15th December 2022 | Jack Oliver

The Entertainment District at the O2 has announced the addition of four new signings, including two debut openings, to its food and beverage lineup, as the destination celebrates strong performance figures.

The O2 welcomes Mediterranean and middle-Eastern restaurant Souka, which opens its first bricks and mortar site. The 9,730 sq ft concept will serve 300 covers with mezzanine and garden spaces opening in the new year.

Meanwhile, American bar and restaurant Trapdoor has launched its 4,000 sq ft debut location on the lower ground level.

Joining the two debutants in 2023 is sweet treat specialist Haute Dolci, who take a 3,100 sq ft space.

Finally, J.D Wetherspoon will launch its nearly 8,000 sq ft location early next year. The brand will be investing £3 million into ‘The Stargazer’ which will feature a 3,800 sq ft beer garden with views across the Thames and Canary Wharf.

These additions follow the recent launches of three British independents to Icon Outlet at The O2 – TOG24, Raging Bull, and Luke 77.

The new openings and signings coincide with a period which has seen sales up for the district by 13% in October and November, compared to the same period in 2019.

The O2‘s Entertainment District is owned and operated by Waterfront Limited Partnership, a joint venture between AEG and Crosstree Real Estate Partners.

The Entertainment District at The O2 dealt with Lunson Mitchenall. Soukra dealt direct.
