The Copenhagen amusement park Tivoli has confirmed it intends to commence the construction of a huge food market, dubbed the Tivoli Food Court, located in the corner of the park facing Vesterbrogade and Bernstorffsgade.
Construction of the new market – which will consist of over 5,300 sqm of shops and restaurants and is expected to open in August 2017 – is set to begin this coming January. The court will consist of 30 eateries, including Tapa del Toro and Italian chain Vapiano, which have already signed up for a spot in the new building.
“Tapa del Toro and the other eateries in Tivoli Food Court will provide completely new options for informal meetings involving meals in our part of the city,” said Annette Juhl, the general legal counsel at Tivoli.
“It will strengthen Tivoli and the neighbourhood and better connect Vesterbro with the inner city.”

The project has been designed by Pei Cobb Freed & Partners Architects from New York and the building will have a glass façade from the first floor and up.
The façade towards Tivoli will consist of a number of balconies where guests without tickets to Tivoli can look across the park.
