Night Tales

Last year it was Dalston, this year the Night Tales event has returned and its all kicking off in Old Street.

This was my first experience of Night Tales and from what I saw in pictures it looked incredible! The indoor/outdoor space with twinkling lights, live DJ, cosy seating area and the winter chill in the air really made it feel like Christmas is just around the corner.

Let me get this part of the way first (the only negative) because it is such a great event and it doesn't last for too long it is obviously going to attract a lot of people. And because of this, as you expect and can read in review of this event, the line to get in is pretty long... The gates opened at 6pm that night and we arrived about 7ish? There was already a hefty line to greet us and it took about an hour to get in. But it was worth it if you like this type of thing.

There you go, negatives over and done with. Onto the positives!

As you can see in photos, its a great looking event. But unless you get there when your doors open I wouldn't hold your breath on getting a seat. But that doesn't change much, you don't need to sit down to have a great time! You have a great choice of hot alcoholic drinks which are funky twists on the traditional mulled wine. I tried the Hot Spiced Negroni which is very similar but with more of a bitter after taste, which I liked but it didn't seem like anyone else did. The other was the Hackney Punch which was really yummy, if I remember correctly it was apricot and apple? So nice and sweet and probably the more popular choice. Both drinks were £7.50 and come in smallish cups, so it's not cheap but what do you expect.

The food stalls were a big thing at this event, for a smallish area they crammed in at least 6-7 well known names such as burgers from Patty & Bun, grilled cheese from Morty & Bob's and pizza from Voodoo Ray's. Unfortunately I didn't get to try everything but I did have a heavenly slice of Voodoo Ray's pizza and trust me...I've never made sounds like that while eating pizza before. But you can't hold it back with these guys, the food really is that good that you start making creepy moaning sounds!

If that doesn't make you want to go try it for yourself I don't know what will. But I would be quick, the event finishes up on December 19th!

It's £3 entry and you can find the address and check out what's happening each night at www.nighttales.co.uk
