The Upper Place food hall announces new vendors – The Boil Club and Pad Thai Café


The Upper Place, London’s newest food hall which opened in Holloway this summer has just announced two new vendors that will join this vibrant and exciting market – The Boil Club, with their signature platters of boiled seafood (opening on 20th November) and Pad Thai Café who will bring the tantalising flavours of Thailand to this North London hotspot (opening on 27th November).
