This experimental dessert bar is popping up in Islington for summer 2019
CBRE Global Investors has announced that dessert bar Whisk has chosen Angel Central for its first central London pop-up.
The brand will take the 2,100 sq ft first floor unit adjacent to Vue, running from May 14 to August 3.
After a debut pop-up in Bethnal Green in 2018, top patisserie chef Simon Jenkins and entrepreneur Randon Burns have teamed up again to bring Whisk Dessert Bar’s three-course dessert tasting menu to Islington.
Matthew Barratt, asset manager at CBRE Global Investors, said: “Whisk is an innovative new dining concept and so we are thrilled they have selected Angel Central for their unique offer.
“With a strong footfall throughout the day and night, we have no doubt that an exciting concept like Whisk will be well received by our visitors.”
Whisk will be popping up in Islington during summer 2019.
The dessert bar’s seasonal menu redefines dessert, with innovative food pairings such as avocado and white chocolate mousse paired with torched sweetcorn and chai chilli dressing, or celery sorbet with honeycomb and blue cheese.
Randon Burns, co-founder at Whisk Dessert Bar, added: “After a successful debut in Bethnal Green, we wanted to find the perfect location for our second pop-up, and we were so excited when we found this space.
“Islington’s affluent demographic and central London location provides us with confidence that it will be a success when we open for business over the summer.
“Whether it’s a lunch time sweet treat, or a post-cinema pudding, we can’t wait to welcome new visitors at Angel Central.”
Angel Central is currently being enhanced with an £11m investment transforming the basement from the existing carpark into the new retail and leisure space, new restaurants, an improved public realm, and the Angel Wings remaining at the heart of the destination.
The new location will be open Tuesday to Saturday.
