Located on the junction of Southwark Bridge Road and Union Street, Flat Iron Square is the latest addition to Bankside, bringing together an exciting hub of new restaurants, bars, food trucks and music venue.
The development is a key part of The Low Line in Bankside, an ambitious long term project to open up the pedestrian walk way that runs along the base of the rail viaduct between Borough Market and Southwark tube station. Comprised of seven repurposed railway arches and surrounding open spaces, Flat Iron Square offers a relaxed urban setting to fully enjoy the mix of artisan food and drink offerings.
Open daily, from 10am until late, the new units include:
