Owners of the o2 in Greenwich have submitted plans for an external bar/cafe/restaurant to the north of the dome.
It’s a logical move from AEG given the fantastic views over the Canary Wharf and down river. The site currently turns its back to the Thames.
The dome has eight foot wire meshes around it across the top of the Peninsula separating it from the Thames riverside path.
According to the planning statement:
“The proposal is to create a space with flexible seating and dining which can change and evolve with seasonal changes throughout the year.
Open areas will allow for pop up seating and food stands. All fixtures will be on wheels or have a means to allow them to be moved. The area is demised through screening and living walls.
The space will be used in conjunction with a physical unit inside of The O2 which already has consent as part of Phase 2 of the Entertainment District.”
