2020 promises to bring an exciting range of events, experiences and brands to Regent Street. Read on for just a taste of what you can expect over the coming year.
We are proud and excited that a number of best in class brands will soon be joining those that already call Regent Street home, from flagship stores to new restaurant concepts. As soon as we can share full details of these new openings, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.
In case you missed our most recent openings, we welcomed many new brands to the street last year, including Microsoft’s first UK flagship by Oxford Circus tube station, H&M Home’s incredible concept store and chic Parisian fashion brand Sandro’s store for men’s and women’s style.
This year, we’ve already welcomed a global first from skincare innovator DUOLAB, whose pop up celebrating a tech-based approach to beauty is making waves in the industry. The Breitling Townhouse, the European flagship store for the luxury timepiece maker, has also found a home on the street. Featuring a watch bar and elegant lounge to take time out in style, it’s well worth a visit.
For drinking and dining, there’s an impressive collection of new destinations to explore: Lewis Hamilton’s plant-based offering Neat Burger; Scandinavian-style coffee bar Hagen Project towards Piccadilly Circus; and iconic Momo London opening its quirky counterpart and neighbour, Mo Diner. Other foodie news includes Pacific at restaurant incubator space 10 Heddon Street - the sushi-style first restaurant from Australian MasterChef Shaun Presland, which from 10th March will be turning into a new pop-up. Fallow, by chefs Jack Croft and Will Murray who honed their skills at Dinner by Heston, has been created to champion seasonality and sustainability. An imminent arrival not to be missed.
We’re also excited to be opening a global first restaurant concept from DC Comics: Park Row. Drawing upon comic book heroes and villains such as Batman and The Penguin, this amusement-park for foodies will include five themed restaurants, ensuring a truly immersive drinking and dining experience.
We started the new year as we mean to go on, celebrating the many wellness brands that call Regent Street home. Far from a January resolution however, wellbeing is something we champion year-round. From indulgent spa treatments to stress-busting workouts, discover a wealth of wellness brands in our curated edit here.
January 2020 also marked the Chinese New Year, and the Year of the Rat. We’ve paid homage to Chinese traditions on our social media channels – follow @RegentStreetW1 to look back on our Lunar Year celebrations.
Looking ahead to summer, we’re already eagerly planning the return of our popular traffic-free Sundays, with three such dates scheduled as part of our summer events series. With each Sunday feeling like a mini festival, it’s the perfect occasion for friends and family to come together and celebrate the warmer weather in the heart of Central London. Car Free Day will also be returning in September, as part of the Mayor of London’s wider scheme to reduce traffic and emissions in the capital.
As always, the end of the year will see the return of the festive season, with the return of our iconic Christmas lights scheme ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ and a host of Christmas activities happening across the street. With previous switch-on guests including international pop legends The Script, Doctor Who icon Jodie Whittaker, talented British singer-songwriter Calum Scott and many more, it’s definitely a date to hold in your diaries.
