This June, Gambas, a seafood-focused Spanish tapas bar with views of Bristol’s famous harbour, will open at Wapping Wharf’s CARGO.
Inspired by the seafood markets of Spain, Kieran and Imogen Waite, the husband and wife team behind Bravas on Cotham Hill, Bakers & Co on Gloucester Road, Wapping Wharf’s Cargo Cantina and Stokes Croft’s Corner 77, will be launching their new venture in unit 12 on the top floor of CARGO 2, replacing Spuntino, which is closing in May.
Gambas will specialise in Spanish tapas, seafood and paella, and will also feature a seafood counter giving shoppers the chance to pick up fresh produce to cook at home. The seafood will be delivered to Gambas from Cornwall’s fish markets.
The interior of Gambas will be inspired by Valencia’s Mercado Central, or central market, following research trips to Spain by the team behind the venture.
