Preparing for life after lockdown, cult London coffee and restaurant brand Grind offer the perfect blend of all-day escapism with their Greenwich-based contemporary sanctuary.
Designed by the famed Melbourne interior design studio Biasol, Greenwich Grind successfully blends the life of Australian coffee culture with the pink neon glitz of England’s capital. Located opposite famous Greenwich Market in what is the Grind’s largest project to date, the bold establishment sees the company leave London’s Zone 1 for the first time, offering a ‘build it and they will come’ mentality that has stemmed from pure originality.
“Greenwich Grind is designed to make an impact, bringing the inner-city Grind experience to the laidback London suburb and appealing to locals, visitors, or tourists,” the studio, Baisol, previously said of their work.
“There’s an easy flow and operational connection between each [room], the areas function independently and together, each with distinct but complementary aesthetics,” the studio added.
Open day and night, seven days per week, Greenwich Grind has been unrelenting in its ambition. Taking up home in a venue that was previously a failed location for Jamie’s Italian chain of restaurants, this all-day café is firmly looking forward in its attempt to combine classic elements of dining with the fast-paced, ultra-modern desire to inspire.
“We’ve never taken a project of the scale of Greenwich Grind, and we couldn’t be more excited to share everything we’ve been working on with the people of Greenwich,” Grind Founder & CEO David Abrahamovitch, said. “From our very first visit, we all fell in love with this incredible space in this beautiful neighbourhood – and we’re thrilled to become a part of it.”
In their desire to cater to the developing requirements of their customers, Greenwich Grind evolves from a takeaway coffee and deli to an intimate cocktail bar, calming dining, outdoor seating and casual lounge.
