Post-Picnic at Victoria Park
251 Paradise Row, London, E2 9LE
Mon 4pm-11pm Tue-Thu Midday-11pm Fri-Sat Midday-Midnight Sun Midday-11pm
A mere five minutes from Victoria Park this is the type of venue which could inspire even the most ardent beer-hater to try a brew. There's just so many different types, from the six fridges filled with bottles to the 23 taps, 19 of which pump out delicious beers, different ones each time you visit. After sprawling in the park the outdoor picnic bench seating will seem like bliss so grab a bench and few pints and enjoy the many varied and unusual beers.
The Sun Tavern
441 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 0AN
Mon-Wed Midday-Midnight, Thu-Sat Midday-1am, Sun Midday-Midnight
Ready for something stronger but keen to keep the vibe chilled we're heading just around the corner to the Sun Tavern. There's a handful of well-executed cocktails but the really gems here are the beers and Irish whiskey. Boilermaker anyone? Sample the regularly changing 'local hero' which is always sourced from microbreweries within a few mile radius of Bethnal Green and try a nip of Poitin - a traditional Irish distilled beverage.
Cocktail Trading Co. Brick Lane
68 Bethnal Green Road, London, E1 6GQ
Mon-Wed 4pm-11.30pm Thu-Sat 4pm-Midnight Sun 4pm-10.30pm
Our last stop is a small cocktail bar off Brick Lane with delicious mixed drinks. There's loads of fun classics if you want to keep the party going or, now the sun has finally set, you could just ask the bartenders for one of their fine Martini, Manhattan or Sazerac, 100% fuss-free.
