Development for food and drink venues near Borough Market and London Bridge.
Flat Iron Square is a hub for drinking, dining and dancing in the shadow of The Shard. The outdoor space is host to a flea market at weekends and various events throughout the year, as well as home to a winter ski chalet, Apres, designed for hot cocktails and cosy times. Under the arches you’ll find street food stalls spanning world cuisines, while next door is live music venue Omeara, its sister tequila bar Cantina and slightly-hidden-away wine bar Tap & Bottle.

Went to watch Uruguay vs. Portugal game on 30/06/2018.
Rudest security staff I've ever dealt with! First of all the security guy literally dipped his hands in my friend's hand-bag without any previous notice. She's visiting from abroad and appears she just bought a small bag of nut kernels from Borough Market to take back home. We told him we're not eating it and his answer was "how would I know?!".
His lady colleague then took over and she opened my bag pack which had a small sealed bottle of mustard paste (also from Borough Market) and said she has to take this stuff away.We were appalled by the attitude and to try make things easier we suggested they keep the stuff aside so we could get them back later after the game but they refused. We then decided to leave in despair and disappointment after queuing for more than 30 minutes..
I've been living in London for 7 years and haven't been fetched that way ever before. It's totally unacceptable and I will never visit this place again. Respect comes above anything else even if you're one of the so called best outdoor screen venues in the city!
I had no idea Flat Iron Square was already up and running as I was here just a few weeks ago and although there was signage with Bar Douro opening soon, and a map of potential plans, it didn't give that much away. I would say that about 70% of it is open and everything we tried was pretty much topnotch. I can't remember the names of all the traders we visited, but some are in airstreams/external stalls while others are in the arches. The ones we decided to purchase from was in the arches: Ekachai has dim sum, dumplings, Thai & Indonesian food. We ordered the Siu Mai (Scallop, Prawn and Roe) and the Tofu Pad Thai. Both were delish! We also ordered two salads from Savage Salads - the healthy option but tasty! Then mushroom croquettes with truffle and coffee sauce from the Spanish stall - a clear favourite! And for something more substantial, we also ordered two pizzas from the pizza stall - crispy / flat bread base! All the food was made to order (apart from the salads) so everything was piping hot and really very good. There are tables inside and out and although there is no table service as such, the table was cleared from time to time (staff don't actually look like staff). We also had A LOT of beers (a Brazilian brand) and prosecco from one of the bars. We then had more beers and cocktails in the Omeara Bar which has table service and was hosting a paid for live music event in the adjacent arch. All in all - this place is cool and has so much potential as a local (i.e. non-touristy) food, beverage and entertainment hub. Can't wait to go back, my new local local!
