Landsec has today announced that Rosa’s Thai Cafe has signed for 2,500 sq ft in the Bluewater plaza. The space is now 100% let or in solicitor’s hands.
Rosa’s Thai Cafe, which began life as a market stall on Brick Lane, serves honest Thai food with seasonal ingredients and has notable sustainability credentials.
Robert Hardie, Portfolio Director at Landsec, co-owner and asset manager of Bluewater, said, “Guests at Bluewater have told us for some time that they would like to see Thai cuisine offered as part of our dining options. We have seen strong demand for space in the plaza and we know Rosa’s Thai Cafe will be a popular addition. We’re looking forward to them opening their doors later this year.”
Gavin Adair, Managing Director at Rosa’s Thai Cafe, commented, “Opening a branch at Bluewater will be an exciting expansion for our highly in-demand cuisine. London was a great starting point for us to offer our authentic and sustainably sourced dishes, but we wanted to reach out to an even wider market. We’re delighted to be bringing an entirely new type of cuisine to Bluewater, which we view as one of the UK’s leading retail and leisure destinations.”
The opening of Rosa’s Thai Cafe follows on from the success of the plaza’s Showcase Cinema de Lux expansion and the opening of GraVity, the UK’s premium trampoline park, at the end of last year.
Mark Barlow, Showcase Cinema De Lux UK General Manager, said, “Since we expanded Showcase Cinema de Lux at Bluewater to create our largest cinema in the UK, we have seen a significant increase in business. Opening four new screens, all with brighter, sharper laser projection, immersive Dolby Atmos sound and customisable reclining seats as standard, has enabled us to offer guests a state-of-the-art viewing experience which is unparalleled in the region.
“In addition, we have benefitted from the other enhancements to the plaza, with the new restaurant brands and GraVity also increasing Bluewater’s appeal as a great leisure destination.”
