640 East was the brainchild of Ross Blake an ex professional rugby player for Bath, Bristol & London Irish, Ross was introduced to the concept of using sea containers to create modular spaces for entertainment. He found the demand for inexpensive, yet visually creative spaces appealing and so founded Cntnr in April 2014 starting with one container in Canary Wharf that soon grew to four and the opening of the popular 640 East in the heart of Canary Wharf serving 1500 cups per day. Ross also has a 640 East in Hayes and has plans for more throughout London.
Ross said “the relationship with Canary Wharf management has been strong from day one they’ve trusted me and I’ve trusted them, I wanted to offer a unique space that was both visually stunning but practical in the summer when the whole of Canary Wharf is out enjoying the sunshine and we did just that so to say thank you to our loyal customers we’re giving something back for our birthday and throwing a big party and everyones welcome”
