Things to do in June - London Zoo Lates

Want to know what to do this June? London on the Inside have got a few ideas…

184 Hackney Road, Hackney, opens June 2
‘Forget tequila, it’s all about the mezcal at 184 Hackney Road, the new bar from events duo Marc Stagg and Edward Barber, with Melanie Symonds of Quiquiriqui fame. With promises of fun-filled evenings and a mezcal cocktail menu, we have a feeling we’re gonna be spending a whole load of time in here.’

The Little Market, Brick Lane, June 5-7
‘Yes, yes it’s another street food market – only at this one food is free. Say whaaaat? Sure is, just sign up for a slot online, tell ‘em how many peeps are going down and cash your voucher in for a hot dog, burger, curry or whatever takes your fancy!’

Zoo Lates, Regent’s Park, From June 6
‘Friday drinks down the local is so last year, darling! This summer we’re bringing out our wild side at Zoo Lates with street food, booze and even a silent dance-off. No word as to whether or not Bloodhound Gang are on the playlist yet, though.’

Field Day, Victoria Park, June 7-8
‘We’re moving into summer and more importantly, festival season and nothing pleases us more than having one in our own back yard. Field Day is our fave. The line-up boasts some seriously exciting new music from our favourite acts, plus loads of top-notch food and drinks stalls. Plus it’s now two days – that’s a whole extra day at our favourite festival. Huzzah!’

Fire and Feathers, Fulham Road, opens mid June
‘Hot birds, that’s what we’re talking about. And this new joint is devoted to piri piri chicken – what did you think we meant? It’s basically like a posh Nando’s with three different types of seasonings to choose from – we can’t clucking wait to try the ‘Dynamite’ (extra hot!).’
