Following the huge success of our temporary summer events, Bonnie-On-Sky and the London Picnic Club, we are delighted to inform you that Platterform will now be taking up a long term residency at the Skyroom- A big thank you for all the love and support we have had to get us to where we are!
Setting out to challenge the traditional constructs of drinking and dining, our recent experimenting with space, social interaction and performance over the past few months has led us to devise an all encompassing concept that will take us through to the end of the year and beyond…
Introducing the SkyMarket.
Opening for business from 25th September until 17th November, The SkyMarket will offer London its first rooftop market place where customers can drink, dine, shop and learn both night and day. A kitchen, bar, deli, art & craft gallery and performance space all under one roof- or should I say, on top of one roof!
Markets are all about variety- different smells, sounds, sights and flavours. Different cultures, customs and ultimately different people. Using this as our impetus we aim to continuously introduce new dishes and invent new cocktails for our menu, make our own or source new interesting products for our bar and deli as well as host a number of cultural events including live music, theatre and dance.
Markets also represent community, and as we continue to discover the wealth and abundance of what SE1 has to offer feel compelled to encapsulate all that is great about the area.
As a concept the SkyMarket allows us to connect with the burgeoning food scene at Borough Market and the Maltby Street area; work with local growers such as St. Mungo’s of Melior Street and local beekeepers via the Sustain Food Network; offer local independent food producers a new outlet to showcase and sell their products; give artists, craftsmen and collectors a new space to exhibit or sell and local musical and theatrical talent a unique setting to perform to a new audience.
Every week our team of chefs get together and share new recipe ideas to feature on our changing market menu. This will all be presented in the form of an open cooking class or presentation every Tuesday lunchtime between 12pm- 4pm, where we invite you to watch in and have the opportunity to taste, learn, share ideas and become part of the process.
Our food direction aims to offer a multi-cultural gastronomic experience, bringing together long standing family recipes passed on through the generations with authentic regional recipes and seasonal favourites. Dishes are carefully designed and selected to work well together and are packed full of personality and flavour for you to enjoy in unique SkyMarket style.
Featuring cuisine combines the heritage, knowledge, intuition and experience of our kitchen team, introducing exotic Indonesian dishes from Sumatra to the Moluccas, taking a fresh approach to African dishes from Morocco to Sierra Leone, reconstructing Caribbean dishes from Jamaica to the Antilles and injecting a bit of Latin flair with staples from Brazil, Venezuela and Peru.
The ongoing SkyMarket Bar drinks development takes cues and inspiration from the changing food menu where our experienced bartenders will create bespoke and inventive cocktails designed to complement dishes. Premium spirits, beers and wines are sourced and selected to complete the regional focus for the week.
As added value, live experiential drinks brand events including workshops and masterclasses will take place every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm, inviting some of London’s finest drinks experts to join us in our bar, share their vast knowledge on production, mixology and techniques, host open tasting sessions and exchange ideas for cocktails.
Similarly, our SkyMarket Deli will announce weekly product launches, inviting special guests to host tastings and workshops in store. Our exclusive stock selection will focus on supporting a number of local independent food producers and growers from beekeepers to jam makers as well as select traders from Borough Jubilee Market and the Maltby Street area.
Over the coming months we will also be introducing our own range of home-made products so that some of our special SkyMarket dishes can be recreated and enjoyed at home.
Whether you are a local or are visiting the area we hope to capture your imagination, satisfy your desire to discover new things and look forward to sharing our passion for great food and drink and more.
NO NEED TO BOOK. The SkyMarket operates a ‘first come first served’ table system.
Tables are limited, however, food and drink can always be enjoyed throughout the space in true ‘Market style’. In order to best serve all our guests we do not seat incomplete parties, this helps reduce waiting times by decreasing open tables. Early arrival recommended!
