Shortwave Café is Bermondsey's newest arts and events venue; it sits on the site of the historic Peek Frean’s Biscuit factory.
Join us for coffee from local roastery Colemans, freshly made sandwiches, soups, salads, pastries and cakes.
If you’re feeling thirsty, we have a full bar with wines, cocktails, and craft beers from Bermondsey Mile Brewers like Partizan and Four Pure.
We have lots of artistic partners who hang the best of their art on our walls.
So grab a drink, sit back in a comfy chair and enjoy our latest exhibition.
We have WiFi and free parking after 6.30pm and all day on Saturday.
Our events programme includes regular exhibition launches, live music and DJs. Our purpose built event space is also suitable for private parties, corporate events, product launches and yoga classes.
Please get in touch if you’d like to hire the space.
Friday nights filled with a variety of talented musicians ready to entertain you from Rock, to pop, to funk, to All Sorts...
Food and Drinks
We work with a number of artistic partners who regularly host monthly exhibition launches in our space.
So drop by and have a look. All exhibitions are FREE.
The simple idea of ‘observation’ has a very strong appeal to me. The thought that so much around us goes unnoticed until it is gone. People stare at their phone, stare blankly ahead or stare at the ground as the world passes by. Let an image grow old and you will see things that you didn’t notice at the time.
