Elephant Park unveil Spring 2021 openings

  • 10 May 2021

As London reopens, six exciting new restaurant, retail and wellness offerings are set to open at Elephant Park this month. Located in the heart of Elephant & Castle, Elephant Park is South London’s hotspot for visitors and residents alike seeking food, leisure, and a place to spend time, indoors and out, with new rental homes at Park Central West also recently available adjacent to the brand-new park. 

One of the most anticipated openings in Elephant Park this month is MMy, the brainchild of Mercato Metropolitano, whose original community and sustainability food market is located just moments away on Newington Causeway. The space will follow the same approach to artisanal, natural and sustainable food for which Mercato Metropolitano is known. MMy Elephant Park will have both artisanal kitchens serving freshly prepared meals and a discerning deli/grocery store with an extensive selection of organic world products, biodynamic wines from small vineyards, local and European cheeses and a bakery. There will also be a café, which will serve ethically sourced coffees and teas alongside sweet and savoury pastries. MMy will be the first phase of Mercato Metropolitano’s 17,500 sq ft Elephant Park site, with the unique MM Factory opening in late summer 2021.

Elephant Park continues to honour the core spirit of Elephant & Castle with two new restaurant openings from firm South London favourites Bayroot and Four Hundred Rabbits. Bayroot will be bringing its vibrant Lebanese concept to Sayer Street, serving authentic flavours and street food favourites such as mezze, grilled meats and wraps in a traditional coffee shop setting. The much-anticipated sequel to its Camberwell restaurant, the menu spotlights mouth-watering middle eastern meats grilled over traditional wood charcoal alongside inventive vegetarian- and vegan-friendly dishes. Fermentation fanatics Four Hundred Rabbits will also open its fifth South London site at Elephant Park. Inspired by Aztec folklore and celebrating its passion for beer and sourdough pizza, Four Hundred Rabbits operates as a space for friends and family to come together and drink well, eat well and - most importantly - have the time to laugh, love, and party. 

The wellness offering at Elephant Park is also expanding, with studio launches from MoreYoga and Tempo Pilates. Combining reformer pilates and awesome music, Tempo Pilates offers a fresh, upbeat approach that’s fun, challenging and stylish, leaving riders full of endorphins. Launching its first studio in 2016, MoreYoga now has 33 studios across London. Offering affordable classes at studios conveniently located for people’s day-to-day lives has proved a winning formula with over 10,000 people now using the studios on a weekly basis. 

Also joining the retailers at Elephant Park will be Kiki & Miu Miu, an oriental food market specialising in Chinese, Japanese and Korean ingredients, alongside a bakery and all your regular grocery needs. Kiki & Miu Miu offers a wealth of culinary inspiration from the exciting and extensive range of products available.  

With its ideal location in Zone 1, Elephant Park is cementing its reputation as a destination for food and drink lovers in the capital – with Sayer Street being the first new high-street in central London for many years with a focus on hyperlocal businesses; and for local residents and those looking for a new place to live, this wave of openings brings new levels of desirability to the neighbourhood. At new residence Park Central West, all six hotspots are right on the doorstep, offering renters the opportunity to live in this prominent foodie hub, south of the river. Elephant Park is a £2.5bn regeneration project where thousands of new homes are being delivered by Lendlease in partnership with Southwark Council.

Elephant Park keeps true to the core spirit of Elephant & Castle, housing an impressive line-up of local traders and businesses, serving a range of international cuisines and offerings that reflect the lively character of this diverse neighbourhood.
