- 2 May 2017
The summer season will see nights hosted by Artwork, Anjunadeep, Maribou State and more
An urban beach adorned with palm trees and decking in the heart of East London. This may sound like an impossible dream but with the arrival of Last Days of Shoreditch Riviera, the dream is about to become an awesome summery reality.
The Shoreditch Riviera is set to be the go-to hotspot for fun and games this summer, opening its doors to the public every Thursday to Saturday, starting on 25 May. With a packed programme of music, street food, cocktails and craft beers, you can expect to be thoroughly entertained by the endless events that are planned throughout the summer months.
Start your weekend off right with the XOYO DJs, who will be taking the Saturday daytime residency each week. Or enjoy one of the many star-studded DJ line-ups, with highlights including Artwork's Art's House pre-party, which will see the dubstep pioneer take to the decks four times over the summer season, and Maribou State's exclusive pre-party in August. There will also be special curated nights from Anjunadeep and Soundcrash among others, and sets from Stuart Patterson, Phil Mison and The Dr Orders. Entry will be free to all events with the exception of the Saturday day parties.
On top of the various events planned, you can also enjoy some group-friendly entertainment in the form of an escape room experience called 'Plumbottom's Magnificent Return'. If you successfully manage to aid the ghost of Plumbottom in the fastest time, you'll win a mysterious prize. Lucky Voice will also be bringing some good old fashioned karaoke to the Riviera, with over 10,000 songs to choose from and rooms available to hire for up to 15 people.
Food will be provided by Nanny Bills, who will be cooking up a range of burgers, their signature croquettes and popular favourites, and Belli Freschi who will be getting involved with their authentic Italian dishes, avocado bar, freshly baked pasta and lots of vegan and vegetarian options. As far as drinks go, you'll be spoiled for choice with five bars serving up beer, wine, classic cocktails and more.
Last Days of Shoreditch Riviera can be found on the corner of Old Street and Great Eastern Street. Thu 5–11.30pm, Fri 5pm–midnight and Sat 6pm–midnight.
