The team behind the prolific Flat Iron restaurant group has launched Vinegar Yard, a new “eating, drinking, shopping, and art space” at London Bridge – it’s currently in ‘soft launch’ and officially opens on 3 April.
Described as “urban cool”, the entertainment venue features art installations, bars, events, pop-up shops, and street food vendors.
Food begins with breakfast and ends with late night dining. Drinks focus on craft beer, and there’s an emphasis on quality coffee.
Most of the dining is outdoors and tables are communal. It looks not dissimilar to Boxpark in design, though is certainly different in aesthetic; Vinegar Yard features a large train carriage covered in giant ants.
Oddity aside, the food line-up is as follows:
- Baba G’s, winners of the Beeb’s Million Pound Menu serving Indian-inspired burgers, snacks, and fries
- Sugo, an Italian company selling filled ciabattas
- Up In My Grill, a small Argentinian steak house where meat is cooked over flame
- Nanny Bill’s, which serves burgers and croquettes
- Turnips, a fruit and veg stall from Borough Market, serving risottos and smoothies
