Summer Tales is a jungle-gym of sun fuelled frolics and a playground of hammocks, rope swing chairs and terraces for that all important lounging. You can even hire out private multi-level huts for a group hangout session where beats, eats and booze are right at your doorstep. Gallivant to your hearts content around this exotic wonderland and take to the mini adventure trails that will take you from the food littered jungle floor all the way up to the canopy's above. 

On the Summer Tales menu we have Burger & Lobster making their pop-up debut with fan favourites like Bonnie Gull's Seafood Shack, Morty & Bob's, Forza Win and Pizza Pilgrims bringing the rest of the munching noise. Drinks will be knocked up at the Lazy Flamingo Cocktail Bar and a Frozen Punch Bar so you can shlurp and sup your way through the summer haze. Coco Shack will also be making an appearance for those looking for some natural refreshment. 

With their winter stage having seen musical acts to the tune of Rudimental, Will Saul, Gorgon City and Kidnap Kid, you can expect great things from this Summer set-up.

Had 2 really great nights at Summer Tales this summer. Had queue jump both nights, but due to poor weather on both occastions, we didn't need them, but was nice to have a tasty cocktail. The food was incred; I had the pulled chicken jerk burger both times,.. because it was so darned tasty. Music was good for a boogie, and afterparty music even better. Would recommend everytime!!

I had my first experience here 28/08/15 and was not disappointed. From the stress-free entry to energetic bar staff, delicious culinary offerings, music and even who can only be described as the best toilet attendant ever, all captured by a drone overhead, I can do nothing but recommend Summer Tales. If you go, buy Q jump tickets. You won't regret it.

We hired the treehouse for a party and had such an amazing night. The venue is really special, cool vibe, music, food and drink - it was a great night. Plus the staff could not have been more friendly or attentive. We would definitely recommend this for a night out or a party. Thanks

Terrible music, boring and repetitive. Massive queues on every bar - I guess that has to be expected though. Overall I didn't like the vibes of the place, but that may be down to personal preference. Not as I expected it to be.

It was a good night although the music very monotonous, it would be much nicer if they played a bit more lively tracks. The atmosphere was as cool and plenty of food options. Overall, a good night out.

Disappointing. Music: monotonous & generic. People: bankers in suits and overly tarted up girls in short skirts taking selfies with coconuts. Bars were packed and very few toilets. Food options were good but the vibe was lame. Left after 1 drink.

Terrible - booked a Treetop Cabana (£250) & arrived to find it was double booked. The bar was completely packed so we couldn't even get a drink. Went to Street Feast instead - So much better!

Good food options and cool general layout. Different cocktails from the usual too. Will try and go back on a non-rainy evening to be able to experience the venue better.

Booked for my boyfriends birthday. Amazing night-fantastic location, unique setting, great food and drink, reasonable prices for London, excellent atmosphere-would highly recommend to a friend and would visit again soon

Really cool unique venue, incredible music and vibe. Certainly one of the most unique venues in London. Would definatley recommend to anyone that appreciates music. Amazing food too!a little expensive but the its London!

Disgraceful , 5 pre paid tickets and turned away at the door ? When I bought the tickets it says on the website "Guaranteed entry" ! Poor excuse of first "over booked" , "system glitch" and then finally the real reason of "image". I doubt it was it was because there were 5 men, and the real reason was age range - it should say 18 TO 30 , as 35 was obviously deemed too old.

Amazing. If I hadn't bought the queue jump ticket, I wouldn't have waited at least an hour in line. Awesome food choices, great music, beautiful and different atmosphere, good crowd, and lots of drink options including fresh coconuts.

My husband and I love outdoor wining and dining and thought this was fab. Have purchased queue jump tickets we got straight in and enjoyed our complimentary beverages. The food selection was excellent; a good range to suit all budgets. We loved the deck chair and swing seating options. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, even when kicking us out at the end of the evening! Toilets could be nicer for the ladies and some standing bar tables dotted around could really help. Other than that totally worth a trip. We're booking to go again!

Really fun evening!! The look and feel was great, really good music and vibe of the whole place was right up my street! Brought queue jump tickets and was really worth it, got in quickly and staff very friendly. Food options good and drinks good price and tasty! Queues for the toilets where very long and pretty gross inside but that's what you expect from porter loos, I guess?! Would totally go again, cant wait for the next one! thanks!

Came here on a Friday night for my birthday with a pretty decent guestlist of people arriving at different times. The door staff were great and made sure all of my party got through fine. The weather was pretty great so it made this a really good shout for a chilled Friday. Plenty of bars, places to sit or stand and a dance floor so you can get a bit of everything depending on your mood. Cocktails could have been better BUT were decent prices and the street food stands were fab! Would definitely go again, really good shout for a weekend outing, especially if there's a big group of you.

Really awesome venue and great service. We had booked a treetop bungalow which was a great choice and the waitress was incredibly helpful and forthcoming. Really valued the great service. I loved the music - fabulous DJ and so glad it was not commercial (as previous comment requested). Food was fabulous, nice creative drinks, too, great choice. Will definitely come again.

Had an awesome time. Went to the night version before and loved it. This time i got a ticket to make sure I got in which was a good choice as there was a queue
24 Jul 2015 by nick09

We had a good night. Music wasn't what we thought it would be(more commercial would have been good) Also no champagne and a very poor selection of wine was the biggest let down. Food was good!

Not a bad night out,good atmosphere drinks reasonable for London. My only gripe is the sound system is rather poor,I think better bigger speakers are needed to travel through the complex.
19 Jul 2015 by Mastergee100

we didn't receive a very good welcome as my name was not on the guest list although I had purchased a fasttrack ticket for entry. The first cocktail was served to me by a extremely unfriendly and moody barmaid but apart from that we had a lovely evening.

This was my first trip to Summer Tales and I thought it was a great space. Fantastic food traders and a good atmosphere. Queue jump tickets weren't needed on the Friday night though.

Great night, the event was kitted out really well and we enjoyed the theme. Food was delicious, although on the expensive side for the portions we were getting in some stalls. Fantastic music from the DJ! Staff we're friendly as well.

So much fun, very enjoyable. Amazing cocktails from the main bar/cocoface stand and the food is all so yummy (make sure you get stuff from multiple stands and share it). On a warm, sunny evening it is unreal. Definitely recommend for groups
06 Jul 2015 by ellennewsome

Venue was great, something a bit different. Staff all really friendly. Glad we had the Q jump tickets as there was a very long queue when we got there. The burger and lobster buns were delicious. Drinks what you would expect price wise. Would definitely go again.
29 Jun 2015 by dancinbird

Perfect night out. The venue looks amazing. Staff we're all friendly & helpful. Ate from 3 different food vendors, all great quality! Cocktails, music & food we're all brilliant. Second time I've been here, would happily go every weekend!

We had a great evening. Tree top bungalow was great for group of us needing somewhere to eat and drink before making our way to the dance floor. Great time. Bit annoyed that we were told we could go back to our tree top bungalow at 11.45pm to get our stuff. We should have had it until 12am. We did pay a lot and all our bags and coats were up there. However, Kevin is the best security guard!

Amazing night in a tree top bungalow for Birthday Celebrations! Third tome this year. Definitely recommend visiting before the end of summer and make sure to try Nanny Bills Croquettes!

Amazing night! Loved it! Great food! Music was good! Treehouse was perfect for our group! The barman with the clips on his hat was super cool! Would recommend it! Love Zoe's hen's!

Absolutely loved summer tales on Friday 12th June.. Such good atmosphere and staff very lovely, especially Theo and the sexy coconut guy. Would have liked to hear the music that was played at the start later on in the eve as a few personal faves were missed out by the late comers. See ya next time x

Good times all round. Got there around 9pm starving hungry and was not disappointed with the food selection available. Music was upbeat. Drinks were what I would have expected at that kind of event (ave. £7). The Jokers punch was particularly nice. Will definitely be going back and hoping night is a bit warmer as not much defence from the cold/wind.
09 Jun 2015 by Johnjacobs

we got there a little late, as we had been out with friends in another part of london, but still had a great time the last couple of hours. but still had a great night.

Q Jump ticket probably not necessary at the time we arrived, but the free drink was an added bonus and justified the extra cost. Lively atmosphere and good music. Food and drink not cheap, but not massively over priced. A unique experience in the heart of Shoreditch, well worth a visit.
08 Jun 2015 by jasomitc

We had a great night out at summer tales with visitors to the city. Quejump ticket made it fuss-free and the cocktail included was a perfect start to time inside! Seating a little limited but that just encouraged plenty of dancing.

Brilliant night, good pricing of drink and entrance, just wish we had tried more food. Highly recommend, it was nice to do something different without paying over the odds!! Hoping to return!!
07 Jun 2015 by samlaupow

Really great. Good food choicesand drinks. Good size, not too big and not too rammed. Clean toilets. Would be good to pay by card but other than that - great 👍

Love it. Was keen on attending after experiencing Night Tales and this didn't disappoint. Q Jump tickets are brilliant. Superb venue and a great crowd. I'll be going again and again throughout the summer hopefully!

Summer tales is a Perfect day/night out. Amazing food, drink and atmosohere. I booked the tree house and it was really impressive. Everyone I was with loved it. I will definetly be going again!
25 May 2015 by harry_6

Summer Tales never fails to disappoint. Amazing that you could buy queue jump tickets this year, saves the hassle of waiting over an hour (if you get in) and you get a free drink too, well worth it! The food is always delicious, music spot on, great crowd and vibes - it's sad this place is only a popup and not open all year round! Always love the theme, decor and finishing touches too - this year was superb.

I attended the the opening night of summer tales and i have to say it is just as good as the night tales events of the winter, bringing a great summer vibe to east London. There was great music, food and drinks. The setting is brilliant and well thought out. If you're not to drunk you can even attempt a lay in one of the hammocks on the small beach area! I bought the Q Jump Tickets though design my night (which include a cocktail), and I would recommend that everyone does the same as the queue is long and it was already one in one out by 7.30.
