London Dock – a growing neighbourhood being delivered by St George (a proud member of the Berkeley Group) – has welcomed Urban Baristas, the Australian inspired artisanal coffee shop, into the heart of its Wapping community.
Situated within London Dock’s vibrant central courtyard, Gauging Square, Urban Baristas opens the doors of its new 2,000 sq ft space – its largest site to date – to offer a relaxed setting for the local community, city workers, residents and visitors.
Sustainably sourcing its coffee, Urban Baristas joins a growing mix of modern restaurants, interactive water features and green spaces at Gauging Square. Once a historical trading dock for luxuries, such as coffee, London Dock is now a revitalised and exciting all-day place to enjoy and is host to a unique blend of shops, bars, and restaurants offering internationally sought-after cuisines.
This new store is home to the brand’s first “Coffee Lab”, a dedicated training base for employees whilst also offering a new public initiative and series of coffee courses for London’s aspiring coffee connoisseurs.
Founded by long-time friends Huw Wardrope and Jonathan Bowman, the speciality coffee roaster has been operating in London since 2016, opening its first Wapping store in 2017, and now has a total of 12 kiosks, coffee shops and brunch cafe’s across London.
