Global food hall brand to open at Waterloo
Time Out Group has signed a conditional lease agreement for a new Time Out Market in London, with planning already granted. With opening expected in 2021, Time Out Market London will occupy 32,500 sq ft over two floors, accommodating around 500 seats.
Time Out Market London will anchor a £200m redevelopment of 135,000 sq ft within Waterloo station – led by London & Continental Railways – which will bring the former International Eurostar Terminal back into use with a variety of local, independent and national retail and leisure offerings.
The first Time Out Market opened in 2014 in Lisbon and is now the country’s most popular attraction with 3.6 million visitors in 2017. Seven new sites are in the pipeline with openings planned for 2019 in Miami, New York, Boston, Chicago and Montreal; followed in 2021 by London and Prague.
CEO Didier Souillat said: “Time Out Market will be a fantastic addition to London’s South Bank – this is a much-loved neighbourhood with fantastic restaurants, bars, museums and theatres.
“London is home to an outstanding and wonderfully diverse culinary and cultural scene of which Time Out Market will showcase the very best. It is all about the democratisation of fine dining: making it casual, and casual extraordinary. Time Out Market will be a place where locals and visitors can really get to know and experience the city.”
