When the sun goes down, some people like bedtime stories.
And some people prefer Night Tales.
It’s a huge (we’re talking 4,000 sq ft) temple of fun, made up of cool al fresco seating areas, cocktails, street food, happy people and a whole lot of dancing – all set amongst a row of beautiful East London railway arches.
The indoor tropical cocktail bar.
Night Tales’ bookable seating areas on the outdoor terrace make the ideal place to kick back on a sunny Saturday with an ‘Nduja, wild mushroom and black truffle-infused mozzarella pizza from the outdoor shack; sip classic cocktails like Aperol Spritzes and Mules; signatures like the Moon Summers (with sherry, 10 year-aged Somerset Brandy, lemon and sweet vermouth) or – if the day’s heading that way – there’s the sharing cocktails, including a Giant Pornstar Martini and a fishbowl of ‘Acid Love’.
And fear not – in the winter, they cover the whole terrace up with a transparent roof, and fire up the heaters.
Should you find yourself in the mood for dancing later, Night Tales is, conveniently, first and foremost a club. In its storied past, NT has seen vinyl-pilots including Rudimental, Groove Armada, and Gorgon City; with recent guest DJs including Theo Kottis, Paramida, Ben Pearce and Bondax (who make bi-monthly appearances on the decks). So every night you can head under the railway arches and bust a move, with the club room open till late.
This ain’t no old wives’ Tales.
NOTE: Night Tales is open Fridays 6pm-3am & Saturdays 3pm-3am. 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.
