Gelupo, Bocca Di Lupo restaurateur Jacob Kenedy’s Soho gelateria, has reopened with a new makeover and a new drinks menu.
The popular ice cream shop first opened its doors in 2010, but had not undergone a redesign until it closed its doors in mid-April.
The new styling from Archmongers Architects is intended, according to a press release, to “give the store a sophisticated feel by improving the flow and customer experience as well as creating a more contemporary interior.”
As part of the revamp, the stainless steel counter holding the various gelati has been moved back to increase the space for customers. There are also new dark leather banquettes at the back of the shop when customers can recline and enjoy their frozen treat, and dimmable mirror-mounted wall lights for late night gelato consuming sessions.
There is also a brand new drinks menu (on a walnut letterboard, for aesthetic reasons), offering Italian spritzes, Negronis, and Moscato d’Asti
A few new flavours have also been introduced alongside Gelupo’s classic roster: Alphonso mango, kiwi, strawberry sherbet, and yoghurt & lemongrass.
Kenedy said: “We’ve served so many customers since we opened our doors back in 2010, so we’re looking forward to sprucing things up a little bit and introducing our new look. The space will feel more modern, warm, and welcoming. In particular, the seating area will be the perfect spot to relax over an Italian coffee, or a few scoops of our artisan gelato alongside a summer spritz.”
