New retail and leisure openings for Royal Wharf’s high street

June 2019

Royal Wharf, the flagship waterside development in London’s Royal Docks by Ballymore & Oxley, has confirmed new lease agreements with a variety of eateries, cafés and restaurants, bringing new flavours to the fast-growing East London neighbourhood. Royal Wharf residents and the local people of Newham will soon have easy access to an eclectic range of new flavours and worldwide cuisines, with more exciting openings on the way.

With the aim of bringing a slice of brunch culture to Royal Wharf, Ballymore & Oxley have leased a commercial unit to Little Hudson Café, an independent eatery serving delicious brunch, lunch and artisan coffee in a cosy, laidback environment. Nicola Miah, a Director of Little Hudson Café and long-time Royal Docks resident, took inspiration for the café from time spent in New York which spawned her desire to replicate the success of the city’s well known brunch spots. Little Hudson Café is due to open its doors this summer.

Situated on the southwest corner of Sovereign Place - Royal Wharf’s traditional market square - is Sushinoen, an unpretentious Japanese eatery which offers authentic Japanese home-cooking and freshly made sushi. Opening this summer, the restaurant is an extension of the successful Sushinoen on Whitechapel High Street which has been awarded with a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the last three years running.

Joining Sushinoen and Little Hudson Café at Royal Wharf is Triple Two Health Foods, a newly-launched coffee bar and café concept. With the motto ‘real food, awesome coffee’, the new store - set to open in summer 2019 – will provide the local community and gym-goers with a stress free way to kick-start their day, boasting some of the best fresh coffee in east London. Conveniently located next to Royal Wharf’s Clubhouse leisure facility, Triple Two is set to be a hotspot for The Clubhouse’s growing membership as well as those relaxing in the Royal Wharf Park.

With an innovative concept menu which has been in the works for over two years, L’Atelier will combine the finest seasonal ingredients with traditional cooking methods to offer residents a delightful take on classic French cuisine. The highly-anticipated all-day café, bar and restaurant is set to launch on Cunningham Avenue later this year.

Bringing delicious Taiwanese flavours to Royal Wharf, newcomer Azuma will open later this summer and promises to offer locals a traditional menu and a warm, family-friendly atmosphere for residents to enjoy. From the perfect steam buns to creative noodle dishes, guests can either stop by for a quick lunchtime bite or settle in for a sit-down meal in charming surroundings.

Aiming to help residents discover the best Kebab and gourmet Mediterranean gastronomy in the area, Kaboom Lounge and its exciting fusion menu will offer a contemporary twist on classic dishes. Locals can look forward to sampling the most authentic Mediterranean flavours in a vibrant, trendy setting, which is sure to become a social hub for the local community once it opens its doors later this year.

These new commercial tenants are the latest wave of businesses to be welcomed to the development, with Royal Wharf Dental, Royal Docks Pharmacy, Silverclip Hairdressers and Dream.Nails either open or opening imminently. A new riverside pub by Fuller’s, The Windjammer, will also open later this year whilst established tenants Sainsbury’s and Starbucks have become permanent fixtures of life at Royal Wharf. The announcement follows the opening of The Clubhouse, a state-of-the-art fitness and leisure hub for residents. Designed by David Morley Architects, renowned for their design of the London 2012 Olympic Water Polo Arena, The Clubhouse has 2,900 members to date and is home to a 25m swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, Jacuzzi, and gym.

The opening of new eateries, cafés and restaurants at Royal Wharf if further proof of Ballymore & Oxley’s commitment to creating a vibrant neighbourhood that has all the buzz and flavours of a local high-street. Whilst the development has been established as a hotbed for fitness and lifestyle amenities, it is also fast becoming a foodie destination and is set to welcome even more commercial tenants as the year progresses.
