Forget Dalston, it’s all about the Elephant these days. Corsica Studios’ venue, The Paperworks, put the sun into summer earlier this year in Elephant and Castle and now it’s back from tomorrow with an all-weather make-over with heaters galore, fire-pits, blankets, plush pallet booths and, more importantly, a roof!
Entitled Smorgasbord, the new winter programme features revamped bars and menus with the back deck being transformed into new drinking den the Hobo Chang Bar for Margaritas, Slammers and Mescals and there’s also a Hot Toddy bar serving winter cocktails, spiced ciders and rums.
Food comes courtesy of street-food traders and new restaurant Wayne Wong’s Hot-Dogging Bar, with Austrian style ‘dogs’ plus Schnitzel, Beef Goulasch, Wood roasted Pork shoulder, bread dumplings, Gluhwein, Kaiser Punsch and plenty of Schnapps.
Each Friday and Saturday expect sets from Trouble Vision, Tief, Love Glove, Tender Hooks, Sessions and more – plus there will also be weekly film screenings, a winter market showcasing local artists designers, crafts and vintage clothing, Christmas workshops and acoustic gigs. Let it snow!
Opens Friday 28 and runs Thursday to Sunday thereafter
