Night Tales had been on my radar for a while and my friends and I decided to head down on the launch night. After drinks in Clapham I met everybody at the Owl and the Pussycat in Shoreditch (which has a super wine list for a pub for those that like their wines – a large glass of a really nice fresh Picpoul for £6.45 is such a bargain) The pub also has a great courtyard and buckets of charm.
No queue situation! Straight in, a bonus for modern day London. The venue is amazing – sort of like a tent at a festival. There is Christmas themed lighting throughout and little meandering paths that make it feel almost like a small Alsatian style village. My housemate and I were absolutely starving and an Asian food stand with steamed buns caught our eye. I had one with duck and one with fried chicken and they were SO good. If you like street food, Night Tales is a haven!
After refuelling and getting a Corona, we made our way towards the DJ booth where Django Django were doing their set. The music was great – they hit the nail on the head with a huge variety of tracks ranging from artists such as Daft Punk, Zed Bias, TNGHT to Tessela’s Hackney Parrot/Helter Skelter. Dooms Night Timo Maas Remix was a great addition too… By the time I had to leave some old jazz classics were on – perfect for the cozy winter mood. It was such a fun evening and I’ll definitely be heading back soon – food and music in such a great venue is hard to resist. It’s only £4 entry as well which in my opinion is such a bargain. If only it was all year round!
