Angel Central Whisks up something sweet with dessert pop-up

CBRE Global Investors has announced that experimental dessert bar, Whisk, has chosen Angel Central for their first central London pop-up. The brand will take the 2,100 sq ft first floor unit adjacent to Vue, running from May 14thto August 3rd.  

After a successful debut pop-up in Bethnal Green last year, top patisserie chef, Simon Jenkins, and entrepreneur, Randon Burns, are teaming up for the second time to bring Whisk Dessert Bar’s unique three-course dessert tasting menu to the heart of Islington. 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. The new location will be open Tuesday to Saturday.

Commenting on the announcement, 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.”

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.
