THINK indoor and outdoor seating for 680 people, plus vibrant food and drinks pop-ups; all next to brand-new exciting leisure and social entertainment…That’s The Hall! Lakeside’s hottest street-food vibe.
The Hall is the brand new out-of-town concept from Market Halls, who have two major central London sites in Fulham and Victoria redefining the British concept of food halls, and it will provide a 14,500 sq ft buzzing new casual dining experience to intu Lakeside’s £72 million leisure extension.
The Hall will bring together local trailblazing food traders to intu Lakeside’s dining experience and will include seven kitchens, a coffee shop, pop-up areas for food trucks and two bars. It will be a casual, easy and carefree way to get some of the best food and drink offered across the South East suitable for families, big groups, lone shoppers and couples.
Food traders will be announced in the next couple of months, so watch this space!
intu Lakeside’s new leisure development will also offer family entertainment with the new Nickelodeon Adventure centre and Puttshack’s mini golf – the first outside of London along with Hollywood Bowl and Flip Out trampoline park. To accompany this there will also be a range of new restaurants all to open this year.
Howard Oldstein, regional centre director at intu Lakeside, said: “Having The Hall at our new leisure development is great for us at intu Lakeside but also for everyone in Essex. We truly do want to change the way we do retail by providing better, all-inclusive experience for our customers.
“As Essex’s biggest shopping centre, we know this brand-new concept will really flourish here and we are excited for its arrival.”
Andy Lewis-Pratt, CEO of Market Halls, said: This is an exciting avenue for Market Halls. The Hall will provide a new and vibrant social dining option for the 20 million visitors to intu Lakeside every year.”
