London’s Bankside is an up and coming area where many small businesses are popping up, claiming valuable retail space while it’s still available. Flat Iron Square is one of these trendy areas comprised of several archways of restaurants and small pop-ups that are just around the corner from Borough Station.
It has a low-key vibe with an outdoor bar hidden under the archway with many restaurants and popups serving fresh ingredients next door. It has been dubbed as Southwark’s new foodie hub, serving up an array of food from sizzling pizzas, fresh salads, burritos and even homemade pancakes. To add to this unique vibe, every Sunday they hold a vintage flea market selling treasures from around the globe and even have live music to get you in the shopping mood.
It’s a perfect place to visit day or night, as it has a very casual, relaxed feel. You can grab a quick bite during the day or chill out next to the fire pits at night with a cold pint and a taste of the local splendor.
