Welcome to Bloomberg Arcade: nine independent restaurants, public art and a pedestrianised haven in the heart of the Square Mile.
As part of its commitment to London, Bloomberg chose to reopen this lost portion of a Roman Road, Watling Street, breathing new life into the City.

Classic Nordic cooking from the restaurateur behind 1 Lombard Street. Ekte uses the freshest seasonal ingredients to create all-day Scandinavian dishes, including Smørrebrød (open sandwiches) and Frikadeller (Danish meatballs)
Regarded as the home of the best Udon noodles in London, Koya specialises in traditional Japanese dishes plus a uniquely Japanese breakfast menu, from the team behind the popular Soho restaurant.
The second London restaurant from Michelin-starred chef Andrew Wong, Kym’s menus focus on the ancient craft of Chinese roasting, paying homage to the many gastronomic regions of China and the creativity and craftsmanship of London’s Chinatown.
Bloomberg’s commitment to the arts means you can enjoy al fresco dining alongside a specially-commissioned water sculpture by Cristina Iglesias: Forgotten Streams.
The arcade itself is built on a site of rich Roman history, the true extent of which was revealed during the construction of Bloomberg’s European Headquarters on Queen Victoria Street.
More than 14,000 Roman artefacts were uncovered during the excavation, some of which are now on display just metres away at London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE. Here, you can experience the restored Roman Temple of Mithras and enjoy contemporary art commissions responding to the site’s unique history.
Shift at Bloomberg SPACE
The exhibitions at London Mithraeum Bloomberg SPACE always bring fresh perspectives to the history of its unique site, and the latest is no exception. Shift by Claudia Wieser opens on January 31, transforming the space into a perspective-bending scene where the ancient and the contemporary conflate and collide.
