Like the food stalls, delicious booze and fun ambience of Street Feast but always wish you were by the river? Your prayers have been answered! Allow us to introduce you to Riverside Feast aka Street Feast-on-Thames, which is popping up at a park next to Battersea Power Station from tonight for eight weeks. In classic Street Feast style, there will be a changing weekly roster of food traders, five bars (including a prosecco and oyster bar, rooftop rum bar and a cocktail bar in a shipping container), music and outdoor LOLs.
If the food isn’t enough of a draw, they’ve also teamed up with Everyman Cinema, who will be showing films on a big open-air screen so you can chow down on your dinner while watching a classic flick. Plus it’s a great excuse to get up close and personal with the iconic old power station before it gets totally refurbished.
The park is open every day as part of the Power of Summer and Street Feast will be serving up grub Thursdays and Fridays (5-11.30pm), Saturday (noon-11.30pm) and Sunday (noon-10pm). It costs £5 to get in, but head down before 6pm on a weekday and it’s free.
