Stansted airport has opened a new restaurant and bar concept inspired by London’s Camden district and its market stalls.
The Camden Bar and Kitchen is spread over two floors and can seat up to 350 people, with a premium bar on the upper floor and a grab and go deli on the lower level.
Design features include “a striking green central stairway” connecting the two floors, as well as a mural of “London’s renowned street food scene” by postgraduate students of St Martin’s College, and artwork by local graffiti artists.
The all-day dining menu includes a “Rise and Dine” breakfast range, alongside fish and chips, salads, burgers, and Thai and Indian influenced street food.
The venue will also showcase Camden street food vendors, starting with Bhangra burger eatery Baba G’s, and local beers are available from the Camden Town Brewery.
Diners can also make use of “The Glow Zone” – a device charging area where LED light pads illuminate when customers charge their phones, “creating an eye-catching effect”.
Stansted recently opened the first phase of a new check-in area, adding eight “hi-tech” desks at the terminal, as part of a £600 million transformation project which will also include upgrades to the airfield and car parks, as well as the addition of new upper deck seating areas in the departure lounge.
