Trade Union is a hidden gem in Tower Hill devised by the brains behind successful bar group Grand Union, and on top of its bustling bar and kitchen, also promises an on-site barbers, a florist, photo-booth and more. 

Selling themselves as more of a 'lifestyle' more than anything, Trade Union is something of a community hub where you can work during the day alongside copious amounts of coffee courtesy of Vagabond Coffee, and make a smooth transition into evening drinks and tasty eats later on in the night.

The plot is set in a huge warehouse with signature exposed brick and industrial feels, with the kitchen serving up a hefty selection of oozing, sourdough pizzas. The venue has a two separate private rooms available to hire, and for larger events, can be hired out as a whole - with a full capacity of 700 strong.

Trade Union Wapping - London Bar and Restaurant Review

Trade Union is under the umbrella of Grand Union and it’s been rumoured to mirror the fun and laid-back atmosphere of its older siblings. With a more than stressful week behind me, I was rooting for the whispers to be true. The...

We had the perfect start to our night at Trade Union. We had a good sized table next to the slide (which is a super fun touch) and the staff were attentive for the duration of our 2 hour visit. The bar team make a cracking Porn Star Martini and the cod goujons were delicious! Would recommend this place for sure! visited Trade Union on 08 Jun 2017

St Katherine's dock venue on a Saturday night is a no no, after enquiring about the Farringdon venue I was told my needs hold be better suited at the St Katherine's dock location. On arrival our group of 9 immediately tripled the amount of people there. We were in need of a good catch up so carried on making the most of the 2-4-1 cocktails. The waiter was. new and very pleasant. However a single round of drinks was taking 30-45 minutes to arrive! Then after ordering food and some of it arriving we were told that my order was not available, it took you 30 minutes to realise? Sure it is different during the week, but I was advised it would be the best venue to suit me needs. visited Trade Union on 06 May 2017

Nice ambiance, and really nice and efficient waiter. However the food orders got messed up ( not sure if in the kitchen or by the waiter) - for example, we asked for a large pizza, but got a small one instead, and some similar situations... visited Trade Union on 13 Apr 2017
