Really disappointed at the number of food outlets where you could actually buy food to consume there and then. At other Taste events there have been many, many more. The Battersea Food Festival a few months ago had infinitely moe. I really can't tell you just how disappointed I am. Very poor value - cost £17.00 to get in, just to walk round a load of stands where you could buy (admittedly very good) produce to take home.


A fantastic, under-used events space in Wapping, suffused with maritime history and interesting little nooks to explore. 

The Man on the Street

Up on the roof at Tobacco Dock we joined other Time Out Card holders for an evening of live music and film. It was pretty awesome. The live artists Amy Hudson, Benjamin Yellowitz and Beth Keeping played with the high-rise buildings of the city as their backdrop. As it went dark the screen lit up and we sat back to enjoy Whiplash. I am not sure a September Monday night gets much better than this.

One of my favourite venues in London. I have been to Tobacco Dock on a few separate occasions for events ranging from food festivals to club nights. Each time I have been more than satisfied with the venue. Obviously each event has its own layout and theme but normally there will be numerous food pop ups outside on the dock with the inside's huge open plan warehouse spaces used for everything from Live music and dance workshops to art exhibits and sports events.

Look out for the LWE events regularly held here and Street-Fest, which was amazing this year!

Totally epic venue that hosts a range of events from club nights to conferences. For club nights, it brings back what old iconic venues used to have - big open spaces, lots of variety and yes, a grotty car park to rave in! Drinks are (like most other venues these days) rather expensive and when they've had day long clubbing events on there hasn't been loads of food choice. But if you're there for the clubbing experience, it's definitely one to check out.
