An international restaurant will launch its very first site in Europe, in one of the UK’s fastest growing leisure and entertainment providers, Gravity Wandsworth.
Californian-born pizzeria, 800° Pizza, officially opened its doors on Tuesday (January 24) in partnership with REEF Technologies, the largest operator of multi-brand kitchens and experiences in North America.
The restaurant is open from 8.30am every day, closing at 11pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday, and 12.30am on Friday and Saturday.
Founded by award-winning chef and restaurateur Anthony Carron, the “Pizza, Wings and More” restaurant, currently has 35 locations worldwide including the US, Japan, and Singapore.
The Gravity Wandsworth launch will be followed by expansion plans that will see two further UK sites open in the next three months.
Deploying new, innovative technology to redefine the UK leisure experience, Gravity Wandsworth offers the first all-electric, multi-level go-kart track in a UK high-street environment and a first of its kind bowling alley with a choice of projected gaming images onto the alley to provide an interactive experience.
800° Degrees’ new food offering stands alongside Gravity’s Newtons cocktail bar concept launched in 2022 making Gravity Wandsworth London’s premier 360-degree entertainment destination for all ages.
Visitors to Gravity will be able to order their high quality and customizable meals via a QR code which will also be available from Deliveroo for delivery.
Londoners and visitors to the capital can expect signature pizza builds such the innovative Butter Chicken with chicken in a tikka sauce, red onions and chillies; the famous Doppio with crispy pepperoni and spicy salami; or the fan-favourite Build Your Own option, encouraging guests to evoke their inner chef while choosing from a vast selection of their premium toppings.
Tommy Lee, CEO of 800° Degrees Pizza, said: “We are so pumped for this entrance into the UK, which will be a pivotal milestone for our brand.
“Having the opportunity to bring the 800 Degrees experience to the people of the UK and the lively location of Gravity Wandsworth, is just so exciting for the whole team.
“We see 800° Degrees Pizza as a lifestyle choice, bringing the premium pizza party to whoever, wherever, whenever, and however our customers want it – and we just hope Londoners love it as much as we do.”
President of REEF Kitchens Kenneth Rourke said: “We couldn’t be more excited to bring one of the States’ most popular gourmet pizza brands to the UK for the very first time.
“From their signature pizza offerings to mouth-watering oven baked wings, guests will love the flavours and premium ingredients 800° Degrees delivers through the innovative convenience of REEF Food Hall.”
Harvey Jenkinson, co-Founder and CEO at Gravity, commented: “We are excited to welcome 800 Degrees to Gravity Wandsworth and believe they are a brilliant business to complement our current food offering.
“Gravity strives to push the boundaries of leisure entertainment within the UK, breathing life back into the high street replacing traditional shopping with fun and entertainment and is always on the lookout for brands that will help to build our offering.
“We are looking forward to hearing what our customers think!”
