This roundabout in Old Street is actually a one-stop hub for all things food, music and downright trendy. And did we mention that it’s perfectly hidden?
These are the things you need to know about Old Street’s Magic Roundabout.
1. The location
It’s right in the middle of Old Street Roundabout, making it a lot more pleasant to drink in than cycle around.
2. Bangin’ burgers
Nothing beats a juicy burger and one of London’s finest is housed in this magical venue. Burger Bear serves up all different varieties coming with cheese, double-stacked, with Holy F*ck sauce, and vegan spicy bean version.
3. Some seriously good Caribbean chicken
Tuck into some lip smackingly good chicken at White Men Can’t Jerk, where they’re serving up bold flavour combinations and even poaching their wings in Red Stripe. Or opt for a heartier meal like the Curried Mutton Shepherd’s Pie or the Tobago Casserole. Just expect to get something as you smell that good ole charcoal grill aroma because hey, what’s self control?
4. Gourmet potato skins
Loaded potato skins aren’t just a thing from a dodgy tex-mex restaurant as Loaded Skins proves in their pretty gourmet venture. Perfect alongside the Magic Roundabout’s selection of drinks, expect everything from smoked sausage, mac & cheese and candied beet to sit happily in your potato skin.
5. All the booze
From craft beers to cocktails, the beverage selection at the Magic Roundabout is what makes it the perfect after-work spot. With lots of quirky seating areas to sit and sip away, you can slowly make your way through the IPA selections and Hoxton Gin on offer.
6. And all the beats
With a line-up of DJ’s from some of London’s best nightclubs, there’s always bound to be a beat to get you tapping your feet on any evening. Ranging in genres from disco to house, the music is upbeat and fun to reflect the same vibes at this fabulous venue.
7. So. Many. Events.
An ever-changing calendar of events that includes big rooftop all day-ers, dance workouts and cookout parties, this roundabout certainly has you partygoers covered. Whether you’re looking for a quiet boogie or a 24 hour rave, this list of events is bound to put some kind of spring in your step.
8. A seriously cool party space and perfect for those #summer Instagram shots
It’s in a cool place and looks even bloody cooler.
Situate your drinks perfectly and watch some serious insta-envy come your way.
