BrewDog reveals plans for giant venue inside transformed Waterloo Eurostar terminal


rewDog has revealed plans to open a 26,500 sq ft global flagship on the former Eurostar terminal at Waterloo as several drinks-focused firms pursue expansions on successful post-lockdown re-openings.

Britain’s biggest craft brewer intends to launch the two-floor venue – complete with a pub, pop-up food truck, cocktail bar, bowling alley and slide to get between levels – next summer. BrewDog Waterloo will also offer workspaces and a Grind coffee bar.

It has been more than a decade since the last trains left the station for Paris and Brussels. The two-floor space had formerly been set to be occupied by Time Out food market.

The craft brewing giant’s founder James Watt said the move is “quite simply one of the biggest things we have ever announced”.

Last week the UK’s advertising watchdog found a BrewDog promotion around “solid gold” cans was misleading

Bosses are planning to double the number of Las Iguanas sites to 35, with new bars in city centres and towns.

Meanwhile Nightcap, the bar chain founded by former Dragons’ Den judge Sarah Willingham, said its three newest London Cocktail Club sites will open next month ahead of schedule.

The launches will take the group’s total sites to 22 – including a new venue on Queen Victoria Street in the City – with a further 11 sites in legal negotiations, and 10 under offer.

Willingham, who saw Nightcap float at 10p per share in January, said the news comes on the back of “strong trading across the group”.  Shares increased 1.15p to 17.64p on Monday morning.
