New dining, shopping & art space to open in London Bridge next week

Vinegar Yard, a new eating, drinking, shopping and art space from the team behind Flat Iron Square, will officially open at London Bridge on Wednesday 3 April.

Located on St Thomas Street under the direct gaze of The Shard, Vinegar Yard is just two minutes’ walk from London Bridge Station and Bermondsey Street; and with art installations, container pop-up shops, bars, street food traders and a huge open air garden area with outdoor seating for hundreds of people, it’s set to become the definition of urban cool.

Open seven days a week from super early ‘till late, Vinegar Yard will be the must-visit London spot this summer for after-work drinkers, weekend fun-seekers, and those looking for the best in the capital’s street food.

The rotating food line-up includes TV’s Million Pound Menu winners, Baba G’s, who will serve Indian-inspired pachos (pictured) and their signature ‘naanwhiches’; Argentinian-inspired steak and chimichurri from barbecue experts Up in My Grill, and burgers and croquette from Nanny Bills.

Borough-based coffee experts, The Gentlemen Baristas, will provide a ‘well-mannered’ all-day coffee shop and dining space, serving from breakfast through to late daily.

Vinegar Yard will also offer an open-air bar serving cold draught beer and a rotating tap for local London craft breweries. And with a large indoor space for when the British weather doesn’t play nice, Vinegar Yard will be the perfect place to relax and enjoy all-day eating and drinking throughout the summer - with the added bonus of ethical and sustainable shopping each day from it’s eclectic mix of makers and vintage traders.

At the weekend guests can also pick up a one-of-a-kind item at Flea London, a curated vintage and makers market that will pop up in Vinegar Yard each week. The market will sell vintage clothing, homeware, books, ceramics, cameras and more.

Packed with a collection of repurposed art and design including an unmissable train carriage installation, the site has been artistically curated and designed by Benj Scrimgeour, founder of Flat Iron Square; with installations created by celebrated British artist Joe Rush of Mutoid Waste fame.
