The first retailers at Wapping Wharf’s CARGO, Bristol’s first ever retail hub made of converted shipping containers, are set to open their doors next week (the week commencing October 10th).
Openings at CARGO 1 – the first phase – will take place over the course of the next two weeks at Bristol’s new harbourside quarter (quickly becoming known as the city’s new foodie hub), with images now revealed offering a first look inside. The Mighty Quinns Flower Emporium is expected to be the first to open early next week.
CARGO 1 will be home to:
- Woky Ko – A 30-seater Asian restaurant and takeaway headed up by MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen of Cen at Celtic Manor.
- Chicken Shed – a finger-lickin’ dine-in, dine-out chicken shop, opening in September, created by the team behind food festival Eat Drink Bristol Fashion, co-founded by Michelin-starred Bristol chef Josh Eggleton of The Pony & Trap, Amelia Twine, Nick Roberts and organic farmer Luke Hasell.
- BOX-E – Modern British seasonal cooking by award-winning chef Elliott Lidstone featuring a four-seat kitchen table for those who want to experience the buzz of the kitchen in full.
- PIGSTY – The first PIGSTY restaurant brought to you by the three brothers behind The Jolly Hog and Will Collier, current Harlequins player.
- Lovett Pies – artisan gourmet pies from the West Country from Lovett Pies’ first shop in Bristol.
- Bristol Cider Shop – Established cider shop complete with cider tastings.

CARGO 1 includes 18 converted shipping containers, and CARGO 2, a similar hub adjacent to the first and approximately twice the size, has also received planning consent – it is expected to open later this year.
