The next chapter of the Night Tales story is just around the corner. After two successful years in our Shoreditch home we’re moving to a fresh location for the summer. Hackney Wick will play host to the fifth instalment of the Night Tales series.

Launching on June 24th for ten-weeks, you can expect to see us go back to our roots. We’ll be transforming an old stone merchant and car scrap yard in the heart of Hackney Wick into this summers new hangout. The space will feature a 25m2 sun terrace, new concept bars with retrospective elements from previous Night Tales events, and a raised sun deck with private sun-drenched booths where you can enjoy new cocktail creations and our favourites from past events.

There will be a traditional British diner courtesy of Nanny Bill’s, a Jamaican beach bar, a Singha discovery bar with a raised sun deck, covered seating areas and a pumping dance floor. There will be some of the countries most respected DJs playing on a nightly basis and a hand picked selection of London’s finest new restaurant and food businesses serving knock out food.

Night Tales have carefully selected some of London’s top restaurants and food partners to ensure the food offer is top of the game and consistent throughout the summer. Old garages have been converted into food shacks headed up by some of East London’s finest restaurants. You can expect to see some new faces, along with Night Tales favourites.

Leading London’s zingiest foodie revolution is Rudie’s, they’ll be serving real jerk from their contemporary beach shack. You’ll also find new kid on the block, Slice Guys who will be serving classic New York pizza by the slice. Make a visit to Nanny Bill’s House, where you’ll be invited into their brand new traditional British diner for their famous croquette roulette and fried chicken bun. Wingmans are a brand new chicken wing experience and the UK's first Authentic Wingery! Their wing technicians specialise in freshly dipped buttermilk wings tossed in a signature sauce of your choice, accompanied by homemade american style sides. Their offerings are always 100% fresh and homemade and each of their ingredients have been individually selected to guarantee the best quality and flavour.

The return of Summer Tales favourite The Lazy Flamingo Bar is where you’ll find Pink Pina Colada’s, Spiced Mojito’s and Watermelon Sherbet Daiquiri’s.
