Mondo Beer + Pizza is the latest tenant to open its doors at Borough Yards, the new shopping, dining and creative district in London Bridge.
A collaboration between Mondo Brewing Company and pizzeria Joe Public, the 924 sq ft space, secured on a 15-year lease, marks the brewer’s first bricks and mortar location.
Customers can enjoy 16 craft beers sourced from nearby Battersea, including IPAs and stouts, a signature ice cream flavour infused with Mondo’s 11.5% Candy Candy beer, created in partnership with boutique ice cream brand Vagabond, as well as a selection of wines, spirits and soft drinks.
Beers are served from six copper tanks hanging from the ceiling, with interiors designed to match both Borough Yards’ distinctive medieval-inspired architectural style and the artwork and vibrant colours of the Mondo brand.
Pizza is served by Joe Public, which has developed a local reputation for its California-style sourdough pizzas at its existing location above Clapham Common underground station.
Mondo Brewing Company chose Borough Yards for the area’s rich history and the site’s growing reputation as a hub for independent businesses. Other food and drink outlets at Borough Yards include Bar Daskal, Barrafina, Brother Marcus, Burger & Beyond, Parrillan and Vinoteca.
Todd Matteson, co-founder at Mondo Brewing Company, said:
“Served by a steady flow of tourists, office workers and Londoners alike, Borough Yards was a natural choice for our first bricks and mortar restaurant and tank-bar in collab with Joe Public pizza. We particularly appreciated the like-minded, small business mentality of our neighbouring restaurants, bars and stores. We look forward to being part of the Borough Yards’ community and using this collaboration to bring the Mondo brand to a wider audience.”
Today’s announcement follows the opening of award-winning French chocolatier Alain Ducasse’s first London store in Borough Yards in November 2022.
The large-scale regeneration project, which is 75% leased, has seen architecture studio SPPARC revive disused viaducts, warehouses and industrial buildings, as well as three historic London streets – Dirty Lane, Clink Yard and Stonecutters Yard. Mondo Beer + Pizza occupies a unit in one of the district’s historic Victorian rail arches.
Delivered by pan-European real estate investment manager MARK, the 140,000 sq ft mixed-use development is providing new offices, shops and restaurants close to London Bridge. Commercial occupiers include Everyman Cinema, Paul Smith and The Office Group.
Lily Lin, UK Managing Director at MARK, said:
“Mondo Beer + Pizza is an innovative concept that adds to our growing roster of dynamic brands at Borough Yards.
“Attracting a diverse but complementary mix of tenants is key to our vision for the project and they will all play an important part in generating new interest and driving footfall in this historic part of London that has been given new life.”
