the sun comes out, there are few things Londoners love more than soaking up the rays with a drink in hand. So when we heard about Flamingo Pier, the new venue where you can eat, drink and be merry on the canal (yes ON it) we got a little bit excited…ok a lot bit excited.

Launching on May 2nd and then every first Friday of the month, the street food and music party will be held on the Counter Café pontoon and canal boat on Hackney Wick. With neon signgage, lighting and tropical plants, you’re guaranteed to feel like you’ve sailed away.

Guest chefs will provide a monthly food theme and there will be cocktails to match, along with craft beers from Crate Brewery. Adam Crickett aka the Bearded Clam (or Mr Clam if you want to be formal) is first off the block and with his handmade brioche buns and special sauce, it’s going to be all Flamin-go-go on this tall ship.

The tunes will be provided by a range of resident and special guest DJs including May’s main man Arveene, who has toured with Daft Punk and Underworld.

Cocktails, clams and cutting up a rug- we’re ready to climb aboard.
