Tweat Up plans MASSIVE rooftop venue in Lewisham [UPDATED]

Following on the phenomenal success of #ModelMarket in Lewisham comes this news. Tweat Up is a pop-up food events outfit that are hoping to open a year-round indoor/outdoor dining experience from October 31st this year. We are entering uncharted waters - anything is possible in Lewisham now.

Does it always have to be described as "pop-up"?

Couldn't you have used an alternative to Hipster?

Serving artisan street food

5 year lease sounds like much more than a pop up. Cinema sounds great too, area could do with it

Brockley Nick said...

Yes. It is not a pop up. Sounds more like franks in Peckham only, as the article says, year round

Well, if they can make anything of that particularly grim looking dog end of unused urban space, good luck to them.

I do hope that if it a success, it gets smartened up a bit. 5 years sounds like quite a commitment. Given the appalling lack of any sort of evening entertainment in central Lewisham, I think they may be onto something here. No doubt the burghmeisters in Catford will be keeping a close eye on its management to ensure any levity is moderate and there is no danger of febrile elements getting too carried away. A bit of culture and some family friendly stuff should discourage that (along with bouncers on the door.)

Lewisham needs something positive like this.

This sounds like a very ambitious project and we wish them all the very best. Agreed, Lewisham could do with much more in the way of evening entertainment.
It looks an amazing space and with the right vision, management and capital investment we're sure the project will be well supported. We can't wait to hear more of their plans.

Great news! The model market has been very popular so an all year round thing is going to be just as busy in a bigger venue for the street feast guys. Would be good to see another entrepreneur take over the model market site so it doesn't just lie empty

This is great news. Have just had two visitors from Paris staying for the week - they arrived with a Top 10 list of places they wanted to go for food and Model Market was at the top. This type of thing can only be good for Lewisham, attracting new people and new ideas. Good luck with this. Hope to be there on opening night, Halloween 2014.

Good news, is this the same company behind street feast?

Cool Lewisham evening venues are like busses...

Brockley Nick said...

Open top buses

Amen to good stuff in Lewisham. But pleeeeease don't rinse us in the process!! I'd love to go to Model Market more than I have but it's an expensive night out for not much but some fun & a possible boogie

Anyone know if this is still a possibility? With streetfeast ending this saturday would be good to have something to replace it. i

They've just told me on Twitter that this project is still ongoing, so fingers crossed for an opening soon
