Initially intended as a ten week ‘pop-up’ in London’s Spitalfields Market, Limin’ – the Caribbean rum shop, bar and general hangout spot – the Caribbean community has been requesting that Limin become permanent. An although not fully permanent they will be there until the end of April 2019.

After their New Year’s Eve celebration they’ll close, but then re-open on 25 January. Due to refurbishment they’ll have a smaller, informal space (just the inside), but will be looking to continue their authentic Trinidad experience and make the most of the exciting opportunities once the refurbishment has been completed.

Presently number two on TripAdvisor out of 18,226 restaurants in London, the popularity of Limin’ since its October 24 launch has been phenomenal. Visitors from Sydney, Singapore, Dubai, Canada, USA and Madrid, have joined London’s Caribbean community to indulge in the authentic Trinidad vibe provided.

Owner Sham is keen to thank everyone who has come out to support him: “Regulars have become family and strangers have become friends. I look forward to adding more colour to Spitalfields whilst showcasing Trinidad excellence.”

Sham also shared how he is inspired by customers and their stories, quoting one woman of the Windrush generation, who said, “Finally somewhere I feel comfortable and can be myself.”

Watch this space for further updates, as Limin’ plans to showcase more rums from smaller Caribbean islands and add more classic dishes to their menu, such as curry crab and dumpling.
