New brands join £30m Riverwalk redevelopment
Italian street food brand Log Fire Pizza Co and Delaney’s Donkey, a new Irish bar and restaurant concept, are both set to open at the Riverwalk, the £30 million redevelopment on the banks of the River Wear. This news comes as Odeon’s fit out works progress for the new multi-screen cinema.
Log Fire Pizza Co and Delaney’s Donkey are due to open this summer, joining Cosy Club and Turtle Bay on the Riverwalk’s striking new promenade. Many bars and cafes are already open at the Riverwalk, including Old Tom’s Gin Bar and It’s All About the Cake, which opened last month, and Ice Stone Gelato, which is opening this month. This sits alongside the wide range of convenient and family friendly shops that are also open and trading, such as Savers, CEX, Poundland and the Works.
Nick Berry, partner at Clearbell Capital, said: “As the construction programme is nearing completion, and Odeon is making progress on the fit out of its six-screen cinema, we are pleased to welcome these exciting new restaurants to the Riverwalk. This development is about bringing a new energy to this part of the city, with a vibrant mix of restaurants, cafes and bars, to complement the cinema and bowling lanes. These two new brands are unique offerings as up and coming local operators, who we are proud to welcome alongside the national brands, giving visitors and residents more choice and more reasons to stay in the city.”
