3 Tribes - Floatation Tanks - now open
With wellness becoming the biggest trend of 2019 we love to explore new ways to relax and look after ourselves. If you find it hard to relax then head to a floatation tank.
Floating is an experience that can help to reset our mental well being and bring balance to our thinking. By taking some time to quieten all the thoughts passing through our head, we allow ourselves to think clearly and become more focused. Floatation tanks are a modern and controlled way to meditate. Many of us have high-pressure jobs and find it hard to take time away from screens, people and everyday noise. For more info and to book an appointment click here.
Vinegar Yard - now open
Vinegar Yard is set to be a brand-new eating, drinking, shopping and art space from the team behind Flat Iron Square. Located under the direct gaze of The Shard, Vinegar Yard will comprise art installations, container pop-up shops, bars, street-food traders and a huge open-air garden area with outdoor seating for hundreds of people. Open seven days a week from early until late, we imagine the venue will be filled with after-work drinkers and weekend fun-seekers come summer. For more info click here.
Lyaness - now open
Lyaness is the brand new bar from the award-winning Mr Lyan and team, continuing their collaboration with Sea Containers London and the iconic space overlooking the Thames. We love the interiors an can’t wait to check it out for more info click here.
