Jimmy’s Supper Club @ Annex East, Stratford
If you’re suffering from post-Olympics depression as much as I am, the thought of the Paralympics offers another hit of London Games-fun following the intense high the city experienced last month. To offer enthusiasts some grub after a day at the Olympic Park, new East London arts space Annex East is hosting a pop-up, Jimmy’s Supper Club, which returns to the site for a further ten night stint from 29th August following a successful debut during Olympic week.
The “immersive dining experience” is bought to us by Jimmy Garcia, founder of recent Hackney pop-up, The Wild Food Kitchen, and the new event is situated just a hop, skip and a jump from the Olympic Park in Stratford. Each night sees a different themed dining event, including film and food pairings such as a Thai menu and screening of backpacker classic, The Beach, complete with buckets of cocktails. If the prospect of a night reliving my island hopping early 20s sound-tracked by All Saints isn’t enough, the snobbish older Andy is also excited about the Opening Ceremony fine dining event on the 29th – a 5 course tasting menu and Champagne reception. A write-up from yours truly of the fireworks, fizz and frolics will follow in due course. Watch this space.
WHEN: 25th August – 9th September
WHERE: 2 Hutchins Close, London Borough of Newham, London E15
PRICE: Tickets £32 – £47 dependent on the night
