The Multi Award Winning Little Nan’s Bar is loving her 90’s pop up in Shoreditch so much that she is moving all the props and decor to Dalston and filling the basement of The Rio Cinema on the Kingsland High Street with 90s fun from 12th May - August!

(Don’t worry, Little Nan’s Tropical Den in Peckham is still open and loving life!)

The Rio Cinema is an amazing Grade II listed independent Art Deco cinema in the Heart of Dalston. When growing up, Little Nan used to travel through ‘The Pipe’ (Black wall tunnel) from her home in Deptford and used to sell ice-cream and sweets at the Rio Cinema on Wednesday & Saturday nights. She often spoke about the parties she attended in the basement back in the 1930’s!

Let Grandson Tristan know if its a celebration on booking your visit and his Nan will name a special bespoke cocktail in your honour using all your favourite flavours and spirits. She will also name a cocktail after your hot date if you want to make that extra special impression… Viva Forever!

Little Nan’s Rio Bar will be open every Wednesday - Saturday 5pm - 12am till August with 2 hour sittings starting every hour. Also available for private hires!

Along with an extensive cocktail menu there will also be a selection of Wines, Prosecco, Spirits and mixers, Candy Vodka Shots, Beers & Cider available, plus fresh Popcorn and savoury snacks are included in the unlimited pic n mix stand.

Some of Little Nan's tables are communal so smaller groups maybe seated with another group. Friends are made whilst round Little Nan’s!

Book in and pay as you go from the menu OR Book in for 2 hours of Bottomless Teapot Cocktails, Beers, Ciders, Wine, Prosecco, and unlimited Cinema style Pic n Mix and Popcorn for £39 per person. All to the backdrop of film memorabilia and 90s anthems!

A really quirky and fun place to go especially before going out to a gig or something. The music was average when we were there, at times not very loud however everything else - drinks, decor and enthusiasm from staff made it great!

really cool place - great atmosphere it gets busier after 9pm.. We had unlimited cocktails and they just kept coming. I hope this becomes a perm fixture as I would love to go back with a bigger group of friends at some point.

Had a great time with friends. We went for the unlimited teapot option and the staff were very attentive and we were never waiting for a top up. The birthday girl loved her personalised birthday cocktail and the photo booth was a lot of fun!
