A Taste of Spain
A Taste of Spain
Gambas is the latest restaurant to be opened by husband and wife team, Kieran and Imogen Waite, who are behind many of Bristol’s leading and best known eating establishments which include Bravas on Cotham Hill, Bakers & Co on Gloucester Road, Corner 77 on Stokes Croft and Cargo Cantina.
Like Cargo Cantina, Gambas is located in Bristol’s vibrant Cargo development at Wapping Wharf and specialises in Spanish tapas, seafood and paella. Occupying a corner site in the upper deck of Cargo2, the new Gambas restaurant boasts superb views across Bristol’s harbour side.
As the lead contractor at the Cargo development and having re-fitted a number of the other restaurants based there, Mobius was asked to complete the fit out of Gambas over the summer of 2018.
Inspired by a recent trip to the ‘Mercado Central’ – the central market in the city of Valencia and the seafood counters found there, Mobius worked with Imogen to plan the Spanish inspired tapas bar and bring her designs to life.
“We’re delighted with the end result. Lee and the rest of the team at Mobius were fantastic to work with in bringing our design ideas to life.”Imogen Waite
Mobius were able to deploy all of their service offerings on this project, which include build, mechanical and electrical services, as well as on-going maintenance.
Building work included creating a new natural stone bar area, re-developing the existing bar into a new open-view kitchen, the design and build of bespoke furniture and fittings such as tables, encasing of kitchen equipment and a waiter station, as well as redecorating throughout. The key transformation was the removal of the front section of the shipping container to provide diners with an even better view of the harbour side.
Mobius installed a brand new electrical system to enhance the restaurant’s power supply and also installed a new EPOS and music system, whilst also upgrading the lighting and CCTV systems.
“We’re delighted with the end result. Lee and the rest of the team at Mobius were fantastic to work with in bringing our design ideas to life.”
