BrewDog meets its Waterloo

Scottish craft-brew giant BrewDog has announced plans for its biggest ever venue – a bar, food and entertainment complex over two floors in the former Eurostar terminal at Waterloo Station. There 26,500 sq ft site was slated to open as a Time Out food market before plans were scuppered by the pandemic.

The beer complex will be a destination in itself as well as serving visitors to the South Bank Arts Centre a few minutes’ walk away, while commuters will also find a Grind craft coffee shop on the site, open from 7am. There will be a food truck, bowling alley, florist’s shop – and workspaces for those who need to put their noses to the grindstone.

BrewDog was founded in Aberdeenshire in 2007 and has expanded on the back of hugely successful Punk IPA and other beers to own a growing stable of bars and breweries around the world, including Australia and North America. Co-founder James Watt said the Waterloo venue, due to open next summer, will be the company’s biggest yet.

“London’s beer scene is the rival of any in the world, and our own supersized plans for BrewDog Waterloo, at the epicentre of the UK’s busiest railway station, are a testament to that. We can’t wait for Londoners and visitors to the city alike to see our new flagship for the capital. Beer, bowling, cocktails and coffee – BrewDog Waterloo will be a destination for anyone seeking out great food, great drinks and an amazing time.”
