Cheltenham’s Brewery Quarter is to welcome a new-to-the-town food concept, Mowgli, Indian street food. Mowgli will be located next to The Botanist and opposite one of the site’s newest additions The Alchemist, and is set to open its doors this Summer.
After a meteoric expansion from its first opening in Liverpool just six years ago, this opening will be the food concept’s 13th opening. The 2,660 sqft site will open next to The Botanist (opened 2018) and opposite The Alchemist.
The Mowgli menu is a far cry from the old fashioned perceptions of a curry house. Real Indian food is extremely healthy, often vegan or plant based and always packed with fresh flavour and vitality.
Nikki Kontarines, Asset Manager of Martin Commercial Properties, Managing Agents of The Brewery Quarter said: “We are delighted to welcome Mowgli to The Brewery Quarter this summer. We feel that Mowgli is the perfect fit alongside our other quality operators. With the multi-million pound refurbishment and expansion of Cineworld VIP and the new additions of The Alchemist, Escape Hunt, Hubbox and F45, we believe we’re really playing our part in enriching Gloucestershire’s hospitality and leisure scene.”
Nisha Katona, founder of Mowgli said: “Out of the ashes of a decimated 2020 we hope to raise this sweet fledgling Indian home kitchen in The Brewery Quarter. I have always been a fan of Cheltenham. To be able to take Mowgli there, to create 30 jobs, to find and support a local charity there makes me so proud. We exist to enrich the life in the places we go to – Cheltenham I hope we make you proud.”
The Brewery Quarter opened in 2006 and began predominantly as a leisure destination. It now includes Cineworld VIP , F45, Escape Hunt, Mr Mulligan’s Lost World Golf, Hollywood Bowl and restaurants and bars including The Cosy Club, Brewhouse and Kitchen, The Botanist, The Alchemist, Son of Steak, Five Guys, Nando’s and Prezzo.
In 2014 works started on £30m regeneration, with a retail corridor extending to the town centre’s High Street, a 90 bed Premier Inn hotel, 34 residential apartments and 40,000 sq ft office space and 160,000 sq ft retail. Urban Outfitters and Luke anchor the High Street retail element of the scheme.
