When? May 14, 2015.
What is it? This summer the disused petrol station on Shoreditch High Street is being transformed into one of the area’s go-to dining destinations, with the launch of Pump Shoreditch street food market on 15th May, including a stellar line up of food, live music and art.
Who’s behind it? There are a variety of partners involved – including the food, music and street art.
Boneyard next door will also be giving guests a sneak preview of its new venue, before its formal opening on 1st June. Specialising in meat served on the bone, the team behind Boneyard will be providing tasters on the night to whet everyone’s appetite.
The vinyl-spinning House of Disco will be headlining the music for the event, with support from Tom Kirby, the founder of Breaks Magazine, and electronic duo Arveene & Misk.
The launch will also be unveiling a street art ‘battle’ that will take place throughout the evening, and see some of street art’s hottest talent compete against each other to create a live exhibition of their work for guests, including Malarky, Darren John and David Shillinglaw.
Size? It’s a streetfood market, so plenty of room!
What’s on the Menu? Some of London’s most exciting street food vendors will be setting up shop for the Pump launch street party, including Mediterranean meets Middle Eastern Pulled by Morito, Mexican outfit Tacotitlan, bagels with a modern twist from Bagel Bros – Shoreditch, Don Arancini with their handmade arancini balls, and healthy pizza company Pizza Rossa, to give guests an eclectic mix of gourmet taste samples to enjoy on the night. Renowned English chef and restauranteur, Mark Hix, will also be taking up a coveted space in the street food village selling his infamous Fish Dogs – a posh fish finger sandwich, with minted mushy peas and tartare sauce.
Trading Hours: 11am-11pm, Monday to Sunday.
