The latest line-up of businesses set to join CARGO 2, the second phase of Bristol’s first retail hub made of converted shipping containers, has now been announced!

With the fit-out of the CARGO 2 units about to start, Gopal’s Curry Shack, The Bristol Cheesemonger and a new venture from Brace & Browns have been confirmed as the latest retailers to join this next phase of CARGO, part of harbourside quarter Wapping Wharf.

Gopal’s Curry Shack will be recognised by many from street food festivals and local markets, serving vibrant and creative Indian-inspired street food with a seasonal British twist. The Bristol Cheesemonger is a small independent business specialising in local and UK territorial cheeses, going straight to source to collect the best local and seasonal cheeses from within the West Country.

The Brace & Browns venue has been described as  “the fancier, younger and sexier cousin of Brace & Browns”, bringing plush cocktails and a new sharing style of eating to the scene. Its name will be unveiled at a later date.

I’m so excited about CARGO 2! These three new retailers join the following, who have already been announced…

Spuntino – Meaning “snack” in Italian, Spuntino specialises in small plates of Italian-influenced New York comfort food, set in a charming and elegant interior inspired by the roadside diners of 1950s America.

Gambas – Gambas is the sister restaurant to Bristol’s favourite tapas bar, Bravas, and will be specialising in prawns, seafood and authentic Andalusian tapas.

Mabboo – Mabboo is an independent Bristol-based retailer specialising solely in clothing and accessories made using the world’s most sustainable plant, Bamboo.

Salt & Malt – Chef and restaurateur, Josh Eggleton, will open a second Salt & Malt, serving signature gluten free fish and chips, as well as holding popup events and tasting menus. Salt & Malt Cargo will include an outdoor terrace with stunning views of The Matthew and Bristol’s Floating Harbour.

The Athenian – The Athenian is a street food endeavour following in the steps of traditional Greek souvlaki.
John Kelly 1880+ – Selling design-led jewellery, silver and metalware, circa 1880 to the present day, with a slant toward post-war Scandinavian and British design.

Pure Yoga – Pure Yoga will be offering lunchtime express classes as well as early morning and evening classes for all levels.

Story @ Cargo – Story @ Cargo aims to become the neighbourhood butchery and take-away dedicated to using whole animals as much as possible, raised responsibly, often organic and always free-range.
