Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch
Question: do I really need to attend... Summertime on the Rooftop?
What: hip happenings and open-air cinema in a Shoreditch boozer’s roof-top garden.
Where: The Queen of Hoxton, 1 - 5 Curtain Road EC2
When: from May until September see www.queenofhoxton.com for details
Pros: Keep On Movin’ to old skool summery sounds from guest DJs Jazzie B, Norman Jay at al at Headphone Disco. Get your best cossie’n’sarong on and create a splash at Hot Tub Tropicana parties. Watch Some Like It Hot, Taxi Driver and other cool classic flicks at the Queen’s nightly alfresco cinema paradiso (also showing).
Cons: surely no amount of iced tea cocktails could compensate for sitting through Jaws, again? That rubber shark is just not scary any more. Did someone say hot tubs? Warm bubbling liquid petri dishes = hypochondriac hell
Go with: Piz Buin Factor 30. ‘Burn baby burn, disco inferno’ is not to be taken literally.
