Freedom Day is almost upon us.
(Unless you get pinged by the NHS app, again).
So Rejoice! For Night Tales is rousing itself from hibernation and getting ready to make up for lost partying time. But in a responsible manner.
If you didn’t get a chance to go pre-lockdown, it’s a huge (we’re talking 4,000 sq ft) sun-drenched temple of fun, made up of terraces, cocktails, street food, happy people and a whole lot of dancing – all set amongst a row of beautiful East London railway arches…
The place is basically made up of two long terraces (The Street & The Terrace) sandwiching a pair of indoor spaces (The Lounge & Arch 14) between them. There are live, big-name DJ acts on virtually every night – some ticketed, some free – but you can always pop in for a quick drink no matter what’s playing.
You can expect a lineup of names like Jody Wisternoff; Fat Tony & Friends; and Jasper James, Paramida, Matthew Herbert & more, all manning the decks across the summer.
As for the food & drink situation? Well, you can fuel up on burgers from Patty & Bun, chicken from Only Jerkin’, or a slice from Sons of Slice, then drown a couple of cocktails from one of their three bars. They’ve got everything from a mezcal negroni, to a frozen tropical punch, to an entire keg of pre-mixed cognac & elderflower cocktail.
And while they’re embracing the idea of freedom quite readily, they’re also taking responsible precautions, too. If anyone tests positive or get an isolation notice for the first four weeks of events, they’ll offer a full refund.
NOTE: Night Tales is open now. Entry to the terrace is free, but tickets for the club start at £6 – see who’ll be on the decks, and book an area, HERE.
