With the evenings getting darker sooner and little to look forward to except the inevitable drop in mercury, the onslaught of Christmas commercialisation and the obligatory cold and flu symptoms it’s nice to know that a little bit of summer nostalgia has returned to our streets.
The Last Days of Shoreditch, a live music and street-food union, (the result of a collab between RED Gallery and music promoter Rob Star) recently reopened its doors on the revamped corner where Old Street meets Great Eastern Street. And the makeover doesn’t quite end there – inside the upper mezzanine level which previously housed an erratic selection of crazy golf components now hosts a new 40-seater dining area which lets the downstairs resident traders – think Rainbo, Wingmans (deliciously moreish truffle balls!), Mama’s Jerk, Cheese Truck and Pull and Punch – provide table service as you rejoice in the warmth of the additional roofing and fire pits!

True to its nature LDS will also be championing and showcasing independent nightlife acts as well as a number of summer festival takeovers, including Love Saves The Day on 12th November and a Bugged Out Weekender special on 19th November. Farr Festival DJs arrive at LDOS on 26th November whilst you can catch Eastern Electrics on December 3rd as well as a ski extravaganza on December 10th with Snowbombing.
Not only is LDS back to cheer us up and warm our cockles in the midst of the usual Winter gloom (the dance floor is also now bigger and better!), but opening every Thursday to Saturday until December 17th this is the street food aficionados’ most mammoth season to date!
LDOS will open every Thursday, 5:00pm – 11:30pm, Friday 5:00pm until midnight and Saturday 6:00pm until midnight.
