NTV’s Spring Break (Nudge Member Experience available)
If you thought an immersive Peter Pan-themed adult playground would Neverland in London… think again.
Because the people at Shuttlecock Inc are about to launch one.

It’ll be housed in a the iconic, 10k sq. ft. Park Village film studios, and inside they’ve got Lost Boys taco trucks, Tinkerbells cocktail bar, and Croc’s breakdancing crew, and that’s just for starters…

The History of Gin According to Cocktails

We’ve got a real son of a Pitch for you.
It’s the second incarnation of Pitch Stratford; the killer al fresco drinking/street food-ing terrace tucked a few minutes down the road from Stratford Station that first popped up last year.
