Pump are converting a disused petrol station on Shoreditch High Street into one of east London’s hottest dining destinations this summer. Arriving on Thursday 14th May with a launch party of eclectic eats, vinyl DJ sets and street art exhibitions, Pump will welcome a string of top gourmet personalities - including Mark Hix - to the party throughout the summer.
This is the place to be if you fancy a mouthful of something quirky. Pulled By Morito fuses all that is great about Mediterranean and Middle East cuisine, Tacotitlan churns out all your Mexican favourites and Pizza Rossa is your place for a healthy helping of pizza. Hix will also be on the scene with his infamous Fish Dogs; basically posh fish finger sandwiches with a support act of minted mushy peas and tartare sauce.
Once you’re all done filling your boots with innovative street eats, you’ll want to check out the ongoing Street Art Battle, where east London’s graffiti artists will go toe-to-toe while creating a live exhibition. House of Disco are on the tunes with their vinyl playlist, and Boneyard – the new meaty restaurant next door – will be serving tasters before their opening on 1st June.
Pump Shoreditch opens with a launch party on Thursday 14th May at 6pm, from a former petrol station on 168 Shoreditch High Street, E1 6HU.
