Culinary pioneers and global flavours — Introducing Design District Canteen


At the heart of Design District, we’ve built Canteen, a stunning plant-filled food hall by Madrid-based architects, SelgasCano. The transparent, cloud-like structure will be home to a bar and six independent culinary entrepreneurs, each handpicked for their originality, enthusiasm and commitment to their craft.

Canteen is a taste sensation destination for everyone — a gathering place for Design District’s community, friends and family, and a fresh alternative for local residents and those visiting the O2 and Greenwich Peninsula’s many other attractions. Open work days and weekends, from sunup to way past sundown, Canteen caters to all the daily needs of its clientele: coffee break to cocktail hour and beyond (the latter libations coming courtesy of a bar that’s also committed to serving the best value pint in SE London).

This vibrant hub plays host to regular workshops and events, bringing together Design District tenants and talents from further afield. From floristry workshops to wine tasting, comedy nights, live music and much more.
