Street food is coming to the City: hospitality group Boxpark has signed a deal to open a new 17,000 square foot location by Liverpool Street next year.
The arcade was built in 1912 on the site of the former Metropolitan Railway station, which is now served by Circle, Metropolitan and Hammersmith & City line tubes.
The site will open in summer 2023 as part of a 15-year lease signed with freehold owner, Transport for London.
BoxHall City will be the fourth Boxpark site in London. Its first venue opened in Shoreditch in 2010, with subsequent sites in Croydon and Wembley. The name comes from the use of old shipping containers, which house bars and restaurants and are used to construct venues.
