ROPEWALK BAR | MALTBY STREET MARKET
NOTE: Sadly, Ropewalk Bar has now closed.
Here are a couple of interesting facts:
1) If you say gullible slowly it sounds like oranges.
2) If you head along to food mecca Maltby Street Market (a 10 minute walk from London Bridge) you’ll now find a beautiful bar and two private dining rooms hidden inside renowned architectural salvage warehouse, LASSCO.
Going by the name of Ropewalk, it’s a handsome neighbourhood cocktail bar fusing classic cocktails with local beers and a simple wine list – provided by market favourites Maltby & Greek, amongst others – inside a quirky space filled with reclaimed LASSCO interiors. Open on Thursday / Friday / Saturday evenings and during market hours each weekend, it has an ‘open food’ policy – which means that you can wander through Maltby Street Market any Saturday or Sunday afternoon, buy something to eat and then enjoy it inside Ropewalk with a Southside Martini or two.
In addition to being able to reserve a table for drinks inside the main bar – which is advisable, particularly on Saturday and Sunday afternoons- it’s also possible (for groups of ten or more) to enjoy a private dinner cooked by Disappearing Dining Club inside one of two beautiful rooms –
1) The Textiles Room. Which is filled with curtains, cushions and clothing made from reclaimed fabrics. It’s comfy.
2) The Eisenhower Room. Which was built using wooden panels from the old US Naval HQ in which President Eisenhower helped plan the D-Day landings. Apparently he was known as “General” Eisenhower while in the US Army, but we couldn’t be sure.
Our General knowledge is rubbish.
NOTE: Sadly, Ropewalk has now closed.
