Spotlight On: Factory Floor
From the team behind Peddler Market comes Factory Floor, a new bar occupying a former spring factory in Neepsend.
The venue, which opened at the beginning of last month, is described as the first bar in the UK which brings together drip infusion, tank beer and cutting-edge acoustics.
Inside the fittingly industrial setting you’ll find an impressive system of apparatus towering over the bar area. This is where the drip infusion comes in: spirits dripping down onto separate levels and slowly being infused with flavour and nuance throughout the day.
All garnishes on site are provided by the Leaf & Shoot aquaponic farm in the basement of 92 Burton Road, delivering fresh micro herbs to the Factory Floor Bioponic walls. These herbs are used to infuse spirits, garnish drinks and create housemate sodas.
The beer on offer is brewed on-site by Neepsend Brew Co and pumped directly into chilled tanks on each side of the bar, while the acoustics are provided by Danley Audio sound – one of the most innovative loudspeaker designers in the biz.
‘Area 2’ is currently hidden away behind a curtain, but will soon launch and be made available for private hire. Expect limited edition drinks, masterclasses on wine and cocktails, incoming small plate food menu, and more fittings harking back to the history of the site.
