One Of London’s Most Beloved Pop-Ups Is Back For Summer 2018

share on:
Night Tales

These are some Night Tales worth listening to…

Some pop-ups are like summer flings: two weeks of hedonistic bliss, and then they’re gone, leaving behind only memories. Some are like old friends: you haven’t seen them in a while, but they’ll be back and life will be just as it was. Night Tales falls into the latter category, making a welcome return two years after their last venture ended. The pop-up veterans are opening up in Hackney from tomorrow (Friday July 13th), and it’s set to be a humdinger.

Night Tales are moving into Bohemia Place, smack dab in the middle of Hackney. They’re sprucing up a couple of railway arches and a garden, and turning it into a hopping party venue. They’ve gone all in on the decor too; amongst the highlights here are an 8-metre high waterfall, which will come in handy should the heatwave continue.

The pop-up originally made its name as a host for some of London’s best street food vendors, and they’ve not forgotten their roots. Japanese cuisine is on the menu this time, with Fat Baby bringing a custom-made grill for delicious yakitori. Other very important things to look out for is the agave cocktail bar, which quite frankly every pop-up should have, and the swinging day beds, for perverse amounts of relaxation. Meanwhile, the 300 capacity night club will regularly play host to the capital’s top DJs. A perfect chance to celebrate the return of an old friend…

Find it at 14 Bohemia Place, 13-15 The Arches, Hackney, E8 1DU, from Friday July 13th. Nearest station is Hackney Central.

Although Alex spent most of his life in Somerset and Durham, London is (almost) in his name, so he relocated to the capital and fell in love with it. Now going by the moniker 'Secret Landon', you'll find him eating all of London's street food, lost in a bookshop, or shouting at his beloved ice hockey team, the Minnesota Wild.
