Flat Iron Square

Railways are generally good for three things:

1) Giving toddler train junkies their high.

2) Getting you from A to B.

3) Providing cool, atmospheric archways for all-new food, drink, and entertainment hubs.

Which is why – back in 2016 – property developer Benjamin Scrimgeour joined forces with Ben Lovett (of Mumford & Sons fame) to create Flat Iron Square – a 40,000 sq ft cultural hub, full of restaurants, bars, and one hell of a good-looking entertainment venue.

These days, due to the actually quite cool looking new ‘Low Line’ development (think Manhattan’s High Line, only… lower), the project has split into two, leaving Omera where it was, whilst the food and drink part has shimmied along a little just 200ft away…

Wander in from one of London Bridge’s backstreets and you’ll be met with festoon lighting strung across a big al fresco yard full of tables. The atmosphere will be strong – music will be emanating from every corner, plus the general hubbub of happy people having a whopping time.

Here’s what else you can expect:

FOOD AT FLAT IRON SQUARE

 

The Good Slice pizza at Flat Iron Square

Across the fairy-lit yard you’ll find five street food traders in residence, namely:

  • Gamekeeper, whose innovative BBQ flavours are lavished on sustainably sourced ingredients and wild game from across Britain;
  • The Good Slice, who not only make delicious, focaccia-base pizzas for you, but also provide them to homeless Londoners and school kids in Malawi;
  • Lil’Watan, serving up boxes of fragrant Lebanese goodness, from fattoush salad to halal chicken shish;
  • STR Eat, bringing South American street eats. Everything from cheesy tequeños to churros.

You can top up your merriment at Flat Iron Square with guest beers and cocktails from not one but two walk-up bars, or stroll into their new on-site brewery & taproom, where you can try keg-fresh Hop Exchange suds.
