Summer Tales At Red Market [Review] @nighttalesLDN

My friend asked me to go out with her one evening for food and drinks and so me being me decided to look for somewhere out of the ordinary, instead of just another bar or restaurant. I do love going to these food markets now on the weekends, especially the night ones as I am not really a day person. To my joy I came across this charming little gem in the heart of Shoreditch on Old Street called Summer Tales.

If you like eating and drinking under the stars and don’t mind potentially not sitting down and don’t mind a bit of a crowd well this is for you…these places are about the atmosphere and good cocktails and better food! As I walked in the theme of the place hit me in the face with big plants and a sandy area with deck chairs, it was of course tropical.

There was two upper decks too, with one that had a bar and fake grass with chairs and pillows that really matched the theme and on a day like luckily we had, was perfect for sitting upstairs with a cocktail in hand.

There are a small, but decent amount of food stalls, with quality restaurants such as Burger & Lobster, Bonnie Gull’s Seafood Shack, Forza Win and more. I have to say the pizza stall looked delicious and I will definitely be going back there.

This time though I opted to head to Burger & Lobster as I’ve never eaten in the restaurant. I decided to have a lobster roll (£10) and wondered how good it would be cooked at the street stall. It was pretty amazing, the lobster tasted fresh and the broiche roll was lightly toasted and buttery. The sauce in the lobster roll was so light and refreshing with chopped spring onions on top, it’s safe to say I will be heading to Burger & Lobster after that.

We headed to the deck upstairs to relax, away from the DJ area sponsored by Red Bull, as it was starting to fill up with people who wanted to dance the night away (well till 12am when it shut). The bar upstairs had to be my favourite, named Lazy Flamingo Bar it served some very delicious but deadly Black Tai drinks, and after 3 well that was it for us! Make sure you head down to this outdoor festivalish outdoor party, it’s on every weekend till August.
