NT’s Loft | East London Bar & Terrace with Live Music
Not satisfied with running some of the capital’s finest pop up events, the team that brought you Night Tales and Summer Tales had lofty ambitions. So bienvenue à Night Tales Loft, a.k.a. NT’s Loft, a permanent bar-club-hangout at London Fields‘ Netil House.
Needless to say, it’s cool.
Taking over an old 60s college building that’s come full circle and is now kind of cool-ugly, NT’s Loft fills its second floor space with comfy vintage sofas, neon lighting and a buttload of plants, letting the brick walls and bare cement floors do the rest.
The best thing about NT’s has always been the music, and while the recent refurb and skilled bartenders will give you plenty to appreciate, you’re coming for the talent on the stage. On Wednesdays the whole place becomes a cosy, red-hued jazz club thanks to a live programme curated by Patterns; while weekends are all about the DJs with a dance floor bopping to disco, house and R&B played through a Funktion One sound system. The outdoor terrace (which can be completely covered & heated) also gets its own DJ, as well as a cocktail booth to keep you watered as you watch the sunset.
Of course, if you get bored of all that, you can explore the rest of the building – like the in-house radio station; the rooftop bar, Netil 360, with its panoramic views over the Victorian gasworks, skyscrapers and warehouses of East London; and Netil Market, home to some 60 independent traders and food vendors, including We Do Nothing (who, in actual fact, make ethical clothing) and cult pastry-slingers Willy’s Pies…
…but you probably won’t.
NOTE: NT’s Loft is open for jazz nights on Wednesdays and DJs on Fri & Sat nights. You can find out more, book a table or entry tickets HERE.
