CULTURE CLUB: On Your Radar 05.09.14
1. CONEY ISLAND PARTY
A stateside-inspired pick for this week, as East Side heads to the East end, with a Coney Island Party at Bethnal Green Working Men’s club. Taking influence from NYC’s iconic seaside playground, for just £6 you can get your fill of grown-up fairground games, a dance contest – even a freakshow act all the way from NYC – all to the tune of the 50s, 60s, disco (and R&B, randomly). What’s more, Hawaiian shirts are encouraged…
2. KATE BUSH NIGHT @ FEELING GLOOMY
Didn’t get tickets for the return of wandering wailer Kate Bush last week? Nah, we didn’t either. If you feel sad about it, then rather than trying to make yourself feel better, harness that despondency and head down to ‘Night in the Bush’. It’s a twist on usual moody club night ‘Feeling Gloomy’ – except this one’s a bit special because they’ll be playing Kate Bush songs ALL NIGHT. What are you waiting for? Practice those hand-dance moves and get a ticket.
3. KRUG & KRUSTACEAN POP-UP
Won the lottery lately? Related to royalty? If not, but you still have a burning desire to flash the cash then you can spend forty quid on a sandwich and a drink at fancy foodie pop-up Krug & Krustacean. The collaboration between one of the finest champagne brands in the world, Krug, and the restaurant Beast (of Burger & Lobster fame) is luxury squared for those who can afford it, with Thames-side booths and picnic blankets for Scandi-style alfresco dining. A glass of Krug or King Crab Club Sandwich (or claw) is £40 – so let’s hope your date is worth it…
