The Coopers

The barrel-makers, or Coopers, of Southwark were an important part of the local landscape. Their dedication, precision, and attention to their craft is prevalent in today’s modern, professional occupiers.


Our mission is to bring the best coffee to all Londoners

London Grind’s bespoke coffee blend has attracted customers across the city. Sam Trevethyen oversees the intricate process at the company’s very own roastery: tasting, selecting and roasting bespoke coffee before it’s packed and shipped around London.

Sam’s ethical with the process too, “I work closely with a team of boutique importers, guaranteeing fair pay to farmers, as well as investing in projects to improve the communities that we rely so much on.”

Great meat – and the chance to be a butcher yourself

Widely respected specialist, Piero Barone was part of the team that pioneered the ethical meat sourcing movement, ensuring livestock was and is looked after by impeccable animal husbandry.

“We want people to understand the meaning of great meat. We host evening butchery classes where people can pick up the cleaver and have a go themselves.”meat treats from our daily grill.”

Salads aren’t limited to the leaf and vegetable concoction

Swedish food enthusiast, Kristina Gustafsson and Italian chef, Davide Del Gatto drew on their contrasting heritage to create Savage Salads, where recipes are formed of diverse ingredients – transcending the ubiquitous leaf and vegetable lunchtime offering.

“Inspired by the appropriate season, we fuse a delicious range of unconventional ingredients to create something tasty and different – think beautiful ribbons of beetroot and carrot, peppered with vegetables and mixed with fish and meat treats from our daily grill.”

We’re about simple ingredients done well

Hixter’s hallmark design premise of turning original features into contemporary aesthetics, made Bankside’s former metal box factory an obvious location choice.

Hixter is aimed at Southwark’s aspirational and growing business scene: “We’re surrounded by great start-up and creative businesses; they love our ‘after-work drinks’ vibe and our abilities to whip up something from our old classics menu.”

Life’s fuelled by coffee and cycling

Once a conventional bicycle shop with a mission to make cycling accessible and affordable for all, Machine was transformed when owners Vitas and Victoria fused their two-wheeled passion with their love of coffee – notably the locally-roasted Monmouth variety.

“Bikes and coffee are the things that keep you moving in life and Machine combines the two; a place where cyclists can get that first espresso shot of the day and catch up with likeminded people.”
