||| WHO CREATED THE RETAILERY? |||
You may remember that The Retailery was a nightclub before the team at Made Public took it over and transformed it into a hub for small businesses and a hang out for the community for a unique experience like no other in Romford.
Described as, 'having a piece of Shoreditch in Romford' we offer three restaurants all under one roof, a bar by the same company and regular events that take place.
We also have office space upstairs that is shared by various small, local businesses in a co-working space.
Families are welcome all day and night and there is definitely something for everyone in our playground for makers and doers!
Give the Things Made Public Facebook page a like to keep up to date with their latest projects including Brew Town and where the next Retailery will be!
||| GAMES PLAY CAFE - EVERY WEDNESDAY IN AUGUST |||
Bring the kids down to The Retailery every Wednesday, between 1-3pm in the summer holidays for some free board game fun!
We have a huge selection of games, from classics such as Cluedo to new games for them to explore.
Join in with your children or sit back and relax knowing we have you covered for 2 hours!
Look out for host, Lauren when you get here!
||| HOW DOES THE RETAILERY WORK? |||
If you have never been to visit us before, it may seem quite daunting when you walk in to our space.
With three restaurants and a bar, it's hard to choose which one to pick!
Each of the restaurants menus can be found at the front when you walk in so you can decide where to eat, then just walk up to which ever one you have decided!
Each restaurant has its own opening times so please check the website before coming - www.retailery.co.uk
