A Disappearing Act

Cocktails, delicious food, shopping for quirky, cool furniture and curiosities for your home… Pretty much our favourite things. But imagine, just imagine, doing all three under one roof, at the same time. That’s our kind of multi-tasking.

Head over to Maltby Street in Bermondsey to LASSCO Ropewalk, the renowned architectural salvage warehouse where The Disappearing Dining Club has taken up residence serving private dining with a twist. You can pop in for a drink and an awestruck wander amongst the incredible array of products for sale, or book in with your friends for a three course dining experience you’ll never forget.

Open Thursday to Saturday evenings, as well as Saturday and Sunday market days, Ropewalk brings together classic and innovative cocktail recipes, an eclectic wine list, and private dining all within the stunning LASSCO interior; a mix of old, new, lost and reclaimed. Check out the Barge Bar (salvaged from a Victorian pub, no less), Textiles Room (filled with curtains, cushions and clothing made from reclaimed fabrics), and the chandelier-filled Eisenhower Room, built using wooden panels from the old US Naval HQ in Grovesnor Square, from which President Eisenhower helped plan the D-Day landings. Think how clever that will make you feel, or is that just us? The only real danger here is that someone might come along and buy the table you’re resting your glass on, or the chair you’re resting yourself on. Everything is for sale, so take a seat (literally home with you if you like) and enjoy the new way to eat, drink and shop!
