 is well and truly open, the latest project from the brains behind Street Feast is located just off Hackney Road. Inside there’s plenty of amazing street food traders and a whopping four different bars; hot bar, whisky bar, wine bar and the Rotary Bar which serves the (lethal) £10 pint cocktails.

We went along on the opening weekend to the Tequila Feast, a set menu of food from the various traders with drinks to match. A drunk BOBs Lobster roll kicked us off served alongside a tequila toddy – a hot tequila shot with apple and cinnamon, it certainly warmed us up!

Other dishes included Short Rib Tacos from Breddos, Rib Tips from Smokestak and our favourite, the Five Chilli Sliders from Slider Bar – HELLO BOYS! We ended with a Raspberry and Hibiscus sorbet from Sorbitium Ices and a Chilliback, oh yes that’s a shot of Jose  Cuervo Silver and pickled habanero juice #hardcore.

With a 2am licence we’d recommend spending some weekend sessions here in the not so distant future, especially as it’s only open two days a week until 14th December…GET ON IT.
