Located within the brand’s Camden Market site, KERB Counter will open on 29 November, with a monthly rotating roster of trader takeovers.
The new, permanent site will be a “testing ground”, says a spokesperson for the brand, providing a “chance for us to grow the opportunities we bring to our traders and customers through beer pairings, supper clubs and smaller private events”.
It will be open seven days a week, serving Assembly coffee in the mornings and wine, craft beer and cocktails in the evenings.
The first takeover at KERB Counter will see pizzeria Fundi serve a six-strong pizza menu, paired with drinks like Venetian punch.
To celebrate the launch, the market will be staying open until 9pm on most Thursdays throughout December, serving Christmas-themed dishes (jerk turkey nuggets, truffle brie fettuccine alfredo) alongside matching festive cocktails at the Counter.
The street food collective is looking to continue to expand across the capital. KERB managing director Simon Mitchell told Big Hospitality’s sister publication MCA that the business was close to securing a West End site.
The site will be a halfway house between KERB’s traditional market stall style offering, and the more permanent fixture of a food hall, he says. It will also feature a KERB Counter, although it won’t be licensed.
Alongside its Camden Market site, KERB currently operates sites in the capital in King’s Cross, West India Quay, London Bridge and at The Gherkin.
