If you’d told me a year ago Id be partying on Old Street stations roof top, in a site that used to house wheely bins Id probably have had trouble believing you. The Magic Roundabout is the latest Shoreditch venue to be seen at and last night I was lucky enough to experience it properly at the Appear Here summer party.
Appear Here are changing the way businesses pop up all across the world and have definitely made their mark on london, especially Old Street station. Gone are the gloomy tube exits that stink of piss and in their place are popup venues such as American Eagle Outfitters and uber trendy juice bars.
The Magic Roundabout is funnily enough situated slap bang above Old Street station and is the perfect setting for after work drinks as the sun goes down. With food trucks like Burger Bear and Prawnography you won’t go hungry and The Craft Cocktail Co bar will keep you happy all night. We feasted on crispy chicken wings slathered in Franks Hot Sauce, tempura vegetables with miso mayonaise, the juiciest cheeseburger sliders and fishy fries covered in a mystery prawn flavoured topping. The food was exceptional and the vibe was delightful. Thursday nights should always be that dreamy. Thanks Appear Here, you guys put on a laaaaavly party.
