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.
