What would you do with Cornercopia?


Five years ago Cornercopia was born when Spacemakers asked ‘What would you do with an empty shop? Our imagination was sparked, we got very excited, and  came up with a plan to turn a tiny and very empty  unit into a local food business. We began with chutney and gradually built a restaurant plate by plate…

We now have a local food larder, kitchen and restaurant which seats 40+ in a buzzing location that Londoners flock to for great food and an incredible atmosphere.

Now we want to ask, what would you do at Cornercopia?
Over the coming months we are offering an opportunity to other chefs and people with great ideas to run supper clubs, pop-up cocktail bars or other evening events at Cornercopia. We are looking for interesting ideas that fit with our ethos – talented chefs, mixologists, and people with experience of running successful supper clubs or other events.

Through spring and summer Cornercopia’s larder will be open in the day and we will be serving lunch on a Saturday & Sunday. We will continue running our own events – such as  our evening bistro ‘PIE BIRD’ every other weekend. This leaves plenty of other evenings free for new culinary ventures.  There are slots for an evening bar & snacks (when our kitchen is in use in the day)  and for supper clubs when you will have the use of the kitchen for prep and service all day. These could be for anything from one evening to a whole series of themed evenings.

We will talk through ideas, give advice on business models  and help promote your event on our blog and to thousands of followers.

Contact us
By email (brixtoncornercopia@googlemail.com) with an outline proposal, telling us about your experience and previous ventures. We will get back to you with more details about what is involved.
