Our venue is available on a ‘Minimum Spend’ basis. This effectively means you can rent the venue for free, as long as you and your guests spend a minimum amount on food and drinks during the event. (see table below). If the minimum spend is not achieved, the balance is paid by the wedding organiser. Where events offer complimentary food and/or drinks, guests will enjoy an ‘open’ bar until the pre-determined amount has been reached, at which point guests will begin paying for themselves. Additional costs may occur. Please check our brochure for more information.

Full Description
OPS Wines is a new, independently owned wine & tapas bar, located in trendy Bermondsey in South East London. Born out of a desire to see the best Portuguese wines on the shelves of London, OPS Wines started as an importer and wholesaler. Nowadays, the signature wine bar stocks and serves the best of Portugal's wines and foods in a wonderfully unique venue. Located in a railway arch along the well-known Bermondsey Beer Mile, the venue is just a few minutes’ walk from Tower Bridge, and easily accessible via Bermondsey or London Bridge stations, as well as many bus routes. Situated over two floors and with its own private outside garden space, the venue is flexible to suit the needs of every individual booking. Up to 150 guests can be accommodated for, and the space is highly configurable. The layout can be easily adapted to create the right atmosphere for groups of all sizes, and all the different stages of your event, whether that's cocktail hour, buffets meals, seated meals or partying the night away! Intimate yet stylish, the interior is vintage meets industrial: think exposed brickwork, an ultramodern glass and steel mezzanine, handmade upcycled wooden flooring, and a custom built granite-topped bar. A great sound system rounds off the perfect offering for private events, though there is ample space for a DJ if you wish. OPS Wines offers a menu of wines imported directly from Portugal, as well as cocktails and Portuguese beers. The unique food menu offers sharing platters and small plates - many of the dishes are made from ingredients sourced from other local small businesses. Outside catering is also allowed, to give maximum flexibility to your event.

Travel Notes

We've had couples hire a London bus to transport guests from the ceremony, but the venue is so well located, it's easy for guests to travel on public transport.

The owners! My beautiful wife and I were married here on our opening night - you might be able to spot us in some of the pictures!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Communication. All your suppliers want to help you make the perfect big day. Help us help you by telling us precisely what you need.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Instead of a first dance, the bride and groom had a choreographed sword fight and it was AMAZING! Best wedding dress swooshing I've ever seen.

Keith Lemon filmed a bit for his tv show in our venue last year!

We love the handmade upcycled wooden flooring on the mezzanine - it brings so much character, but the colour is so neutral, it will compliment any colour scheme.
