Amazing Grace: Opening of a bar and concert hall in the 12th-century Church of London Bridge


The 12th-century church will reopen as a bar and concert venue in London Bridge later this month – with an original Banksy.

The new company, named Amazing Grace, will take over the site of St Thomas’ Church previously inhabited by Cantonese restaurant Duddell’s.

Promising a musical lineup of local and international talent, the venue will retain many of the original features of the Grade II listed church, from intact woodwork to an altar dating from the 1700s.

One of Banksy’s artwork, Christ With Shopping Bags, will also hang in the space.

The venue will be divided into three main areas: a central dance floor, an overhanging mezzanine and an outdoor seating area, sheltered under a pergola.

Mr. Bao, known for serving his Taiwanese steamed buns on Peckham’s Rye Lane, will offer a range of local street food, from pork belly bao to dan dan noodles.

Amazing Grace is the latest opening for K&G Hospitality, the group behind two bars in Pop Brixton, as well as Hangar Bar in Hackney Wick.

Co-founder Vineet Kalra said: “We are delighted to be the new custodians of this iconic London space. As a team of live music fans, we strive to bring the best talent, both local and global, to our stage over the next few months.

Amazing Grace will open to the public on October 15th. Visit for more information.
