Escape the Rat Race in New Bar by admin on June 17, 2018

A new pop-up, the Rat Bar, was launched in one of Waterloo’s forgotten railway arches on Thu, Jun 14, 1:30pm to Fri, Jun 15, 2:30pm, with a rare Banksy artwork, known simply as Giant Rat.

Previously unseen in London, this masterpiece will take pride of place within Rat Bar, adjacent to the Leake Street Tunnel that Banksy himself helped put on the map in the early days of his artistry. The cocktail list will feature signature drinks including El Raton, Black Death and You Dirty, Double Crossing Rat.

To set the tone, an eclectic mix of music will resonate throughout the bar, with live sessions showcased weekly and announced during the venue’s three-month stint.

Located at 26 Leake Street and launched as part of the regeneration for London’s “Graffiti Tunnel”, visitors can expect authentic street art from local and iconic creators on all surfaces.
