Food wise, The Shard Bar 31 at London Bridge focuses heavily on locally sourced ingredients to populate their food menu. This includes a range of carefully crafted bites such as the forbidden rice Buddha bowl with kale, fermented vegetables, almond and basil or the black cod wraps. British cured meats from Cannon & Cannon and cheeses from Neal’s Yard Dairy combine to form the perfect sharing plate, especially when paired with a glass of wine.
Live music will take place every Friday and Saturday night with talented buskers being recruited from the streets between Bermondsey and London Bridge to Piccadilly Circus. For somewhere to relax and listen to smooth guitar chords and beautiful voices, this is the place to be! Throughout the year, Bar 31 is set to host a whole range of events from open mic and comedy nights, to art masterclasses and yoga sessions on the outdoor terrace.

In keeping with the neighbourhood vibe, the walls of the bar are set to display an ever-changing collection of work from skilled city artists. For example, a mosaic entitled ‘A Riot of Colour’ will soon feature on a wall of the bar, having been hand crafted using ceramic pieces that have washed up on the banks of the River Thames and which date back to the Roman times.
