We'll be transforming their urban oasis into a wine-filled garden where you can kick back and bask in sunshine with a cold glass of something delicious in the shadow of the Shard.
The newest foodie hub in Bankside, Flat Iron Square is home to a tantalising line-up of bars, food vendors, restaurants, street food trucks, outdoor space and a live music venue. From Tuesday to Sunday of LWW you’ll find us in their garden – a partially covered yard with feasting tables, it’s own cabin and easy access to the Food Arch where we’ll be recommending pairings to all the wonderful wine partners who’ll be joining us.
So what's happening in the hub?
For starters, Loire Valley Wines will be serving up one of their region’s most iconic varieties at the ‘Muscadet Truck’.
Freixenet will be looking after your rosé cravings with its Vintage Van serving up pink ﬁzz - WOO!
Pol Roger is parking up in a land rover to serve jeroboams of Champagne alongside a vast selection of their still wines.
Or... start your evening with a refreshing glass of this summer’s must-have aperitif – white port and tonic – from Graham’s. Yes please.
Onsite wine bar Tap & Bottle will be handing over the keys to iconic merchants Berry Bros. and Rudd for the Tuesday and Wednesday evening for their first ever pop-up wine bar, then come Thursday you can retreat from the outside world and make it your first port of call for a LWW £5 flight.
Also joining us Tuesday to Thursday is Bolivian artist Edgar Lizarazu. Watch as he creates large images on canvas using red wine as paint. As the wine dries the complexity of the colours change to create unique and stunning visuals. With a new artwork created live each day we can’t wait to see what he has in store!
Friday night we’ll see the regal return of the Rogue Terrace – bringing those Fri-YAY vibes they’ll have Soul, Funk & disco, curated by the Global Rogue & his collective all weekend - and lashings of vermouth for you to quaff.
And if you're looking for a place to catch the Royal Wedding... the London Wine Week Hub will be the place to be. We’ll be celebrating the royal couple with a screening of the nuptials, a dedicated menu of fizz and cake, and a good old fashioned knees up through till the evening.
All weekend Flat Iron Square’s famous and much loved flea will be pitching up around the garden to bring a quintessentially British market of antiques, vintage and craft delights to peruse whilst you sip on your cold rosé.
The Hub is open to all and ENTRY IS FREE throughout the week however Festival Pass holders will beneﬁt from a discounted price point of wines starting from just £5.
