Wapping Wharf has welcomed the arrival of CARGO 2, announcing a series of exciting new businesses to join the popular CARGO 1

Following the success of CARGO 1 – home to Wokyo Ko, Chicken Shed and Lovett Pies among others – Wapping Wharf has announced the business making up CARGO 2, which started arriving today. 

“We’ve worked hard to strike a balance so that each business complements one another, and together they provide a fantastic offering,” said Stuart Hatton, director at Umberslade and the developer behind CARGO. “We are really excited to see these new shipping containers arrive at Wapping Wharf and look forward to seeing this new, thriving community continue to grow and flourish.”

Mokoko, Better Food, Bertha’s Pizza, Little Victories and Wild Beer Co are already open along Gaol Ferry Steps, with Biblos and Fig 1 due to open soon.
