The arrival of Seven Dials Market breathes new life into Thomas Neal’s Warehouse which, when built in the 19th century, was used to store cucumbers and bananas. The Market is divided into two distinct areas; Cucumber Alley, an indoor lane of specialist London producers, and Banana Warehouse, home to an array of renowned street food traders and brand-new restaurants.
Retaining the building’s beautiful cast iron beams and brick arches, Seven Dials Market is filled with touches of iconic pop-art character throughout. Diners can feast upon baby pink Italian Terrazzo marble counters, playfully contrasting with orange leather stools and an electric pink elevator that takes centre stage.
Sustainability is high on the list of requirements with the space housing a Rothenberg Storage Unit that holds all wet food before it is sent to anaerobic digester and converted into electricity.
