Streetfeast

Any self-respecting Shoreditch hipster has heard of Streetfeast by now. Moved recently from the Old Truman Brewery to a primo spot on Kingsland Road, its the latest hot spot to savour the likes of The Ribman, Kimchi Kult, and Big Apple Hot Dogs with your friends, and look good doing it. If you're not already sold by the mouth-watering choices, there’s also an indoor gin bar and bookable tables via the website in order to party further into the night.

Every Friday including May 24th. 5pm-midnight.

Tief @ Corsica Studios

Just in case you didn’t know, “tief” means “deep” in German---so prep yourself to get down, and dirty. Probably as close to reliving the 80s rave scene without getting too illegal, you really can’t go wrong with this party crowd. Lose yourself in Corsica Studio’s notoriously sweaty house-techno den of iniquity, as guests and resident DJs make you shake your booty to some seriously intense bass. Glowsticks optional.

May 24th. 10pm-6am. £17.50 advance

Unit 5 Farrell Court, Elephant Rd, London, SE17 1LB
