Friday, May 23rd: Night Tales is back with a three-day kick-off party at the Dalston Department Store, which they’ve re-dressed to give it a NYC-warehouse feel.

Get involved, here.

Saturday, May 24th: The best part of Summer? The return of the awesome pop-ups from last year, like the excellent rooftop joint Coppa.

3. The Hoxton Hotel 81 Great Eastern St, , London, EC2A 3HU (Shoreditch)

Housed inside the trendy Hoxton hotel, Hoxton Grill walks the line between debauched hotel bar and classy lounge. There’s an array of food options across the breakfast, brunch, all day, lounge and dessert menus, including small plates of salads, burgers, steaks and ribs. Open 'til 2am—later than most things in the area—it’s a solid spot to get those last couple Negronis down and make some terrible/terrific decisions in the photo booth. Plus, the people-watching can be better than TV.
