Eat, Drink, Paint and Play at Leake Street Arches; a celebration of urban art, dining and entertainment located underneath Waterloo Station.

Eight former railway arches have been brought back to life to provide a community of independent restaurants, bars and entertainment spaces that are united by their approach to celebrate the creativity of urban culture.

Adjoining London's longest legal graffiti wall on Leake Street (which has made its name as a democratic cultural venue for street art) Leake Street Arches is an exciting street-culture led destination.




UPDATE: In light of the ongoing Government response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the #LeakeStreetLIVE programme of events will resume in 2021. Check back for further updates or follow us on social media and be the first to hear of new events. We look forward to welcoming you back to Leake Street Arches.
