NEW NEW NEW!
The Sound Lounge has Popped up in Wimbledon
It’s great when three Merton independent businesses get together and create something new and exciting. Well that’s happened right in the centre of Wimbledon where the The Sound Lounge music and arts social enterprise (formerly in Colliers Wood/Tooting with a drive for social responsibility), Graveney Gin, (organic and distilled in Merton Abbey Mills with a stall in Tooting Market) and The Wimbledon Brewery (fabulous beer available nationally and brewed in SW19) have created a NEW pop up venue on the Broadway.
Opening on Friday 1st December this collaboration, led by the passionate team at The Sound Lounge, was made possible working in partnership with Merton Council and the Love Wimbledon BID.
With a mixture of arts, music and Bobblehats Live Advent Calendar (14 Dec) the hub brings energy, social responsibility and alternative enjoyment to the heart of Wimbledon.
Lunch / teatime / night time
Specialising in locally and ethically sourced food, The Sound Lounge will have a distinctive vegan menu served all day as well as coffee, cakes and excellent wines, local ales and spirits.
Open 6 days a week 11am-11pm
This is a pop up so help to make it a success in Wimbledon town centre.
About the Sound Lounge
The Sound Lounge owners, singer-songwriter Hannah White and her musician/producer/music manager husband, Keiron Marshall, opened their first space when they saw music venues had been closing at a fast rate around London making it more difficult for start up performers.
Determined to make change, they launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to create a space 100% focused on music and art. The campaign grabbed the attention of The Evening Standard, Time Out Magazine and BBC Radio London. In just over 40 days the money was raised and the work began on this seemingly unachievable social venture.
When they needed to move premises Merton Council and Love Wimbledon worked together to find them a temporary base opposite The Piazza in central Wimbledon.
About Graveney Gin
Inspired by the pure passion of gin, entrepreneur Victoria Christie created organic and ethically sourced Graveney Gin. Using a small but perfectly formed 30L Copper Still which produces 30 bottles per batch, Graveney Gin is a truly handcrafted spirit of uncompromising quality so perfect for any ginthusiasts.
Graveney Gin is a London Dry Gin using organic ingredients such as punchy Juniper Berries, Pink Grapefruit and Angelica Root makes it fruity and smooth. Graveney Gin gives 10% of all profits to a conservation charity who protect and care for the rare mountain gorillas in Virunga National Park, Eastern DR Congo
