British Land - the company behind West London's popular Pergola On The Roof pop-up - announced that they will open a second Pergola venue, this time focussing on the Paddington area. Pergola Paddington will serve as a colourful, al-fresco dining area, showcasing a handful of London's most popular casual dining restaurants.
The new site will be found adjacent to Paddington Station in a mixed-use campus area. With an overall capacity of 850 and spread across the two different floors, the main focus of Pergola Paddington will be its residencies - the first of which kicks into life this May and will host restaurants like Patty & Bun, DF/Mexico, Raw Press and Decatur.
Despite all the developments and changes taking place, the area will not lose touch with its Paddington roots; the venue will appropriately be decorated with low hanging plants and winding vines to create an 'urban paradise' vibe. Having invested heavily in the area over the past five years, it's clear the British Land team would love to see Pergola Paddington draws in the 130,000 visitors that its sister rooftop venue managed last summer.
Pergola Paddington will open in May 2017 at 5 Kingdom Street, London, W2 6AE. The first residency of restaurants will see names like Patty & Bun, Raw Press and DF/Mexico all set up shop at this West London pop-up.
