2021 is set to be a bumper year for Canary Wharf foodies. Cargo’s Market Hall food market is opening shortly, and the floating restaurant complex at the Water Pavilions is being fitted out for The London Project’s Canary Wharf opening later this year.

Joining in on the food and drink experience, Pergola London are bringing their popular outside inside dining combination to Canary Wharf’s Crossrail Place.

The expansive venue next to the famous Crossrail Place roof gardens is one of the largest spaces in Canary Wharf, with space for 700 guests. Opening next month, here is a brief look at what’s in store!

Who are they?

TRANSFORMING OVERLOOKED SPACES INTO UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCES.

Incipio Group

Pergola Canary Wharf is run by the Incipio Group. They are a brand that have opened multiple pop-ups and built a portfolio of London venues — the Canary Wharf outpost will be their sixth permanent venue.

  • The group’s trademark is finding expansive inner-city spaces, filling them with informal seating, lots of plants — and multiple food and drink options!
  • They’ve taken on multiple spaces ranging from the once traditional pub, The Prince in Brixton, to a late night bar in the ex-television studios in White City.
  • The restaurants operate similarly to food markets, food is self-collection, and the operators rotate so that the venue retains a fresh appeal.

What is Pergola Canary Wharf?

Pergola Canary Wharf is named after the brands successful Paddington branch. A large venue with inside and outside seating, it’s essentially a cross between a restaurant brand and a food market.

Unlike the Paddington Pergola, which houses four rotating restaurants and two bars, plans for the Canary Wharf branch differ slightly. At Crossrail Place, there will be one permanent central restaurant with an open kitchen to watch your food being cooked, alongside several street food outfits.

In addition, there will be three bars, live music, one-off events, and you can even book the venue for private occasions!


Where is Pergola on the wharf?

Once home to the Iconic Giant Robot streetfood market, Pergola Canary Wharf is located on the top floor of Crossrail Place station.

This expansive rooftop space will have inside and outside seating.

The venue is just under 10,000 square foot (ca. 929 m²) and the space for 700 guests includes a 200-seat terrace.
