London Bridge’s new hotspot, Vinegar Yard, is packed with street food, art installations and pop-up shops.
The highly anticipated Vinegar Yard comes from the team behind the buzzing Flat Iron Square. Officially opening on April 3, the space is filled with art installations, street food traders, pop-ups shops and bars, and a giant outdoor garden with unobstructed views of the Shard.
Open seven days a week, from early ’til late, we expect Vinegar Yard will be packed with foodies and after work drinkers all summer long. Winning street food comes in the form of Up in My Grill’s smashing steaks; Nanny Bill’s brilliant burgers; Baba G’s Indian nachos and signature ‘naanwhiches’; and so much more. There’s also coffee from The Gentleman Baristas and booze from Vinegar Yard’s very own open-air bar. (Don’t worry, there’s a big indoor area for when the weather doesn’t behave.)
There’s a good mix of ethical and sustainable shops too, including Doc Cotton, Smoking Gun Vintage and the gorgeous florist Chez Michele. On top of all that, Flea London takes over every weekend, offering gorgeous vintage clothing, homeware, books, etc.
Vinegar Yard is full of repurposed art and design, including an incredible train carriage installation. Many of the pieces have been 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. Visitors will even get the chance to peer into Joe’s live onsite workshop, where him and his team are working on an apocalyptic mechanical sculpture that’s set to be displayed in the yard.
Vinegar Yard officially opens on April 3, but it’s technically open on ‘soft launch’ as we speak (confusing, I know). It’s open seven days a week, from early ’til late, and you’ll find it on St Thomas Street, just two minutes away from London Bridge station.
