The location is the outdoor Euro Car Parks – 163-175 Shoreditch High Street E1 6HU
Their car park is a prime Shoreditch hotspot: on the High Street, next to the clubs, opposite Shoreditch House / Pizza East and a 30 second walk from Shoreditch High Street tube station, 3 minutes walk from Liverpool Street tube station and 5 minutes walk from Old Street tube station.
Hungry? Amazing bar? Live music? Seating Area? Hipster trendy crowd? The Urban Food Fest has it all.
15 street food traders make the line-up every week. The bar serves everything from funky cocktails to english cider, cheap beer, wine and prosecco. Live street bands provide entertainment as you relax with friends and try the delicious variety of street food on offer.
Our street traders are amongst some of the most prestigious and well-known in the UK. So far we have featured Hix restaurant’s Fish Dog, Streetzza Wood Oven Pizza Monster van, Arancini Brothers, Schwarma Shack, The Crumbery – macaroons made by Head Pâtisserie Chef of several Top 5 star hotels, Grays & Feather providing Pimms, Champagne and Prosecco, the renowned Rare Str’Eat from Borough Market making rare breed lamb burgers, Ok Horn Please cooking up indian street food, Bel & Brisket providing hot salt beef sandwiches, Born and Raised, Pizza Pilgrims, Cooking Cooks making italian delicacies, Bangkok’s authentic Tuk Tuk providing thai food, Parsons Nose farm produced sausages and burgers, Barista Baby coffee cart providing tea & coffee, Le Rac Shack doing raclette, Krep Me Up savoury & sweet crepes and Dutch Pancakes.
Up and coming urban musicians play live music to entertain the crowds. Each week there are 4 news bands and singers.
There is also entertainment in the form of massage girls with custom made massage chairs, famous make-up artists doing face painting, caricature artists and a coconut shy.
The event is managed by City Lawyer Jessica Tucker, who founded the event to fill a gap in the market. There are very few street food night markets and certainly none that have live street bands and unusual entertainment right in the heart of Shoreditch. The Urban Food Fest brings this all to life!
Check out the happy faces!!
