Lendlease has announced the opening of two new spaces at Elephant Park in south London: all-day kitchen and bar RAREBIT and community garden store The Nunhead Gardener.
RAREBIT has opened its first bricks-and-mortar location on Elephant Park’s casual dining hub, Sayer Street. The new concept has a menu focusing on British while its grocery section stocks a range of independent wines, craft beers, and coffee from East London coffee shop, Climpson & Sons.
The Nunhead Gardener is the latest brand to move from one of Lendlease’s meanwhile units into a permanent space at Elephant Park, following the likes of Dima Beautiful, Beza Ethiopian Vegan, and bar and bottle shop The Tap In. The 900sq ft unit stocks a selection of indoor and outdoor plants, as well as specialty gardening tools, seeds, and seasonal scented candles.
Guy Thomas, head of place assets at Lendlease, commented: “Both of these openings speak to our core values at Elephant Park, with a commitment to providing our local community with uses that are independent, sustainability-oriented and unique. The arrival of RAREBIT adds a new cuisine to casual dining hub Sayer Street, and The Nunhead Gardener’s revamped permanent space has created a plant haven that we know local people will love.”
This news follows the signings of Mexican-inspired restaurant Cheeky Chicos and community pub The Rosy Hue, which will open in Elephant Park’s lifestyle quarter on Ash Avenue later this summer, overlooking the park.
