The 30,000 square foot industrial space features over 12 different food and beverage locations such as the Vinyl Lounge, the Tin Man Bar, and 1821 Cocktail and Coffee bar.
It is hoped the destination will create 200 jobs for local businesses, foodies and emerging artists in the city for its plans to transform the Paragon Square building, which formerly housed the House of Fraser department store.
Those with a thirst will be able to get a hand-pulled, locally-brewed 1821 HoH beer or visit the food hall's Vino Deli and it all starts this Friday, December 3 when the doors open to the public.
On Monday morning, brand new artwork was completed in the interior by a collection of local graffiti artists. The idea is thought to "push more colour and urban decoration in the city of Hull."
Hammonds of Hull's official opening will be this Friday, December 3.
This weekend it is expected to be busy as the doors open for the very first time since House of Fraser shut back in August, 2019.
