Starting from midday enjoy crafting, live music, equally live street art and much much more. Kiddies and pets are also welcome, which makes a lovely change, however the website does state that the roof bar tends to get quite busy, so it may not be appropriate for the small ones to be at the venue past 6pm.

Artists such has Himbad, Lilly Lou, The Real Dill will be creating & selling their work on the day (all proceeds will go towards the appeal), along with indi brands The Deep Ecology Design Club & KODAI Clothing (to name but a few). A full list of the artists, photographers, brands and bands can be found here.BOAT-PARTY_FEED-therealdill_co_uk

“Stories from survivors of the Nepal Earthquake about their experiences and the current situation in the regions we’re supporting.” will be read throughout the day.

Rugman, creator of Streetwear label Rum Knuckles, will also be making an appearance with his wares, so keep an eye out for him too…and the frozen cocktails, lets not forget about those!

Nightjar, City Road East London

“Something special is beginning to stir in a Hoxton basement. Watch this space, but speak easy.”

 

The Nightjar represents all of the glamour and secrecy (sorta) of the speakeasies of the 20’s. Full of music and life, not to mention alc-e-hol, this luscious venue furnished in black leather by candle is to much fun not to visit…did I mention there was alc-e-hol.

Nightjar holds live events weekly, the next of which will be Tuesday 12th March ’13. The jazzy tunage of Dom Pipkin, a self taught blues brother from London. for more details have a nosey on barnightjar.com.

The Book Club, Shoreditch

BookClub_thefirstpint-co-uk

Bringing together wit, wisdom and enough food and drink to see you through from early breakfast to a nightcap at last orders at the bar, The Book Club offers a cultural revolution to the East end’s social scene.

The Book Club fuses lively, creative events and late night drinking seven days a week with an alternative menu of brain-teasing and mind-expanding thought for food in the form of workshops, talks, cultural showcases, parties, ping pong, pool and the best in new music. The Book Club is the younger, slightly smarter sibling of the Queen of Hoxton, and has turned the conventional arts institution on its head, fusing boozing with brain power.

Two spacious floors of a former Victorian warehouse on Leonard Street have been kitted out for eating, drinking, thinking, meeting and dancing. Under the direction of young designers Shai Akram and Andrew Haythornthwaite, The Book Club has a familiar, eclectic feel as varied as the clientele and the entertainment on offer. The interior blends the raw, pared-down character of the building with layers of mix and match vintage soft furnishings, naïve mosaics and graphic lighting features, as well as the constantly evolving permanent exhibitions that adorn the walls.

The Book Club presents an eclectic ongoing programme of events and social activities in art, music, film, fashion, philosophy, design, science, and perhaps the odd spot of DIY and craft. The line-up includes special screenings and cross platform club nights showcasing new creative talent through to informal evening classes and talks by a host of eclectic and interesting thinkers.

 

Monday to Wednesday 8am – 12am
Thursday & Friday 8am – 2am
Saturdays 10am – 2am
Sundays 10am – 12am
