CARGO 2 Extension


Wapping Wharf has today announced the names of the independent businesses set to open in the soon-to-be-extended CARGO retail hub.

CARGO is currently home to 26 businesses, and is soon set to become the home of seven additional businesses.

Comprising both food and drink and other businesses, the new offerings for the shipping container retail hub are as follows:

· Beer Necessities – Beer Necessities is an independent craft beer retailer with a passion for seeking out the best beer available throughout the UK and further afield.
· Brothers We Stand – Brothers We Stand is a new clothing retailer, selling exclusively ethically produced menswear from a tightly curated collection of independent brands and designers.
· Lemonade – Lemonade creates pleasurably imaginative and tasty burgers, fries and lemonades.
· Portside Gallery – The Portside Gallery is a contemporary art and craft gallery, featuring Jane Reeves’ unique fused-glass paintings, as well as a variety of high quality work from other selected artists and makers.
· Temple Cycles – Temple Cycles is a Bristol-based bicycle producer, which manufactures a range of modern bikes with a classic aesthetic for town, country, touring and road riding.
· The Assembly Bakery – The Assembly Bakery is a small team of artisan bakers with taste and ethics at their core. They bake pastries, cakes and bread and believe their sourdough is the best in Bristol! They move with the seasons and offer lots of gluten free and vegan deliciousness.
· The Meat Box by The Story Butchers – They aim to become the neighbourhood butchery dedicated to using whole animals as much as possible, raised responsibly, often organic and always free-range.

The businesses are due to start their fit-outs in the coming weeks.

Wapping Wharf approached the new retailers for quotes, with the food and drink responses as follows:

Henry Revell, director at Beer Necessities, said: “We have made the choice to open our first store at CARGO 2 as we feel it’s a great location with an exciting mix of independent retailers and restaurants. At Beer Necessities, we will be offering an eclectic mix of craft beer, from IPAs and sour beers to big imperial stouts in bottles, cans and growlers.”

Alex Hayes, chef and owner at Lemonade, said: “CARGO celebrates Bristol’s thriving independent and creative scene – there is no other place I’d want my business to start out.”

Luke Hasell, from The Meat Box by The Story Butchers, said: “The butcher shop creates a beautiful lifecycle for whole animals – beef, pork, lamb, chicken, rabbit and duck. The animals all come from farms that are organic or part of the Pasture Fed Livestock Association. Our suppliers have been hand-picked with the highest regard to animal husbandry and ultimate tastiness for our customers.”

James Dingle, managing director at The Assembly Bakery, said: “The CARGO development has been so exciting for Bristol’s food scene and we felt we had a great role to play in providing freshly baked breakfast pastries and croissants in the morning to hungry commuters, snacks of wonder at lunch and your daily loaf on your way home.”

The brand new extension is to be located at the far end of CARGO 2 down Museum Street.
