Metropolis London set to open in Vauxhall

Metropolis London will be opening its doors in Vauxhall at Albert Embankment’s Railway Arches this May

A brand-new multi-faceted food and entertainment space, Metropolis London, will be opening its doors in Vauxhall at Albert Embankment’s Railway Arches at the end of May.

Championing a multitude of global cuisines, the 8,000 sq ft venue across two arches features a line-up of 11 local street-food vendors alongside a standalone bar and live events space.

With space for 350 seated throughout indoor areas and an additional 150 outdoors in the expansive garden space, the interiors draw inspiration from the bustling streets of New York with urban artwork depicting street food scenes and imagery created for Metropolis London by graffiti artists.

What to expect

Trading seven days a week, visitors will be able to experience a variety of cuisines including: Birria Taco (Mexican), Chipsy (BBQ), Fresco Trattoria Pizzeria (Italian), Karapincha (Sri Lankan), Lorenzo Kusina (Filipino), O’Gosht (Turkish), alongside sushi from Asian Sekushi; sandwiches from Sexy Buns and Uzbekistan noodles and dumplings from Oshpaz. Additional offers come from The Ice Cream Union’s new concept Gelato Lab and plant-based mylk teas and coffees from Nuttea.

A 15-metre standalone bar dispenses a wide range of wines, craft beers by the bottle and on-tap alongside signature cocktails.

Sustainability will be at the heart of Metropolis London with all vendors committed to recycling packaging and minimising food waste with the entire venue plastic-free.

Setting it apart from other food arcades and halls, is the entertainment arch featuring a central stage for live performance. A curated programme of inclusive events and entertainment will include live music, film, comedy, cabaret, LGTBQ+ friendly events and family-orientated performances. Eight 65” TV screens will show major sporting events including The Euros, Wimbledon, cricket Internationals and Tests as well as major rugby fixtures.

Anna Yaqub, founder of Metropolis London comments: “Metropolis London is a melting pot of global cuisines, bringing the very best of London’s food, drink and entertainment scene together under one roof. We’re thrilled to be opening our doors this May and are confident the venue will attract diners and drinkers as well as those looking for great entertainment.”
