Night Tales is transforming its Shoreditch street food market into a scene from the backstreets of Tokyo for its latest food extravaganza: Tokyo Nights.

Launching on October 29, the event promises to take visitors on a 'tour of the buzzing metropolitan city and touch on scenes from Old Japan'. Tokyo’s best restaurants and cocktail bars, local markets and famous districts have all inspired the pop-up. 

The front of the area is going to be decorated with Japanese neon signs and city lights, and the remaining space decorated to look like the city. There'll be an urban downtown area, including a private Love Hotel which will showcase the crazy characteristics of the world-famous ‘pleasure hotels'. There's also the old town with bamboo and cherry blossom trees.

Tokyo Nights will play host to a supper club Ritsuko & Co, founded by Tokyo-born Yoshiko Wada. She'll be cooking up an eight-course Japanese tasting menu including salmon sashimi, Iberico pork shabu-shabu salad and wagyu scotch egg.

Other tasty street food treats on offer will include burgers and chicken wings from Patty & Bun, teppanyaki short rib beef from Nanny Bill's, sloppy joe hot dogs from Bubbledogs as well as gyoza dumplings from Dorshi.

There'll even be a heated sake bar as well as eight private ryokans (Japanese houses).

In the meantime, Night Tales is also opening a permanent cocktail bar and restaurant in London Fields on October 15!
