This Friday, East London will see its first nighttime food market. Already attracting an impressive roster of London’s finest street vendors, as well as live music and a drinking bar, the Long Table will provide a lively, communal area for food enthusiasts and nighttime revelers to socialize in real-time as well as online.
The market is the brainchild of the Bootstrap Company, the team behind Dalston Roof Park, and not only encouraging real-time, convivial interaction, visitors will also be able to participate in the ‘longest online table’ via twitter. The central banquet table will enable diners to share their meal with other diners.
Occupying a former World War II bunker in central Dalston, the space will house live art and bands at each event, and serve a diverse, international menu from restaurants including Moro on Exmouth Market, acclaimed steakhouse, Hawksmoor and Big Apple Hot Dogs.
Exemplifying the abundant creativity occurring in the area at present, the Long Table is a must see and opens this Friday at 6pm until midnight, running every Friday until December 16th. Find out more here. – Samantha Fox
