London Bridge hotspot Vinegar Yard is packed with street food, art installations and pop-up shops.
The wonderful Vinegar Yard opened in 2019, and has proved a popular spot for foodies and shoppers ever since. The space, which is filled with art installations, street food traders, pop-ups shops and bars, and a giant outdoor garden with unobstructed views of the Shard, is a popular year-round spot, and here’s what you’ll find when you head along.
Open seven days a week, from early ’til late, Vinegar Yard is packed with foodies and after work drinkers galore. Winning street food comes in the form of Nanny Bill’s brilliant burgers; Baba G’s Indian nachos and signature ‘naanwhiches’; banging Italian street food from Sugo, and so many more options to stuff your face with. There’s also coffee from The Gentleman Baristas, booze from Vinegar Yard’s open-air mezzanine bars, and perhaps most importantly, a big indoor area for when the weather doesn’t behave.
There’s a good mix of ethical and sustainable shops too, including Creative Resource Centre, Vintage Paradise and the gorgeous florist Chez Michele. On top of all that, Flea London takes over every weekend, offering gorgeous vintage clothing, homeware, books, and much more.
Vinegar Yard is full of repurposed art and design, including an incredible train carriage installation. Many of the pieces were created by British artist Joe Rush, who has made various sculptures for Glastonbury Festival, and has worked on collaborations with Vivienne Westwood and The Rolling Stones.
Fabulous in summer, and cosy in the winters, Vinegar Yard has everything you need for the good life!
Vinegar Yard is open 12-10pm, Monday to Sunday, and you’ll find it on St Thomas Street, just two minutes away from London Bridge station.
