All summer long
Of course there are some events which you can enjoy all summer long and why wouldn’t you?? 

Flaminco Pier, London
Last summer this was one of the best and most fun pop up parties of 2014. This summer they are back!
Good news for the peeps that love palmtrees, cocktails and flamingo’s. It’s on at the Hackney Wick’s Counter Cafe, the venue’s floating area, and the counter’s moored canalside boat. The fun thing here is that they have a different theme each night. This could be a different exotic location or ‘postcard’, with food, drink inspired by the setting and custom projections to bring the theme to life visually: Bali, , Phillipines and the Seychelles are all on the list, so prepare to be treated to some wild and wonderful tastes, soundtracked by top disco, house and funk DJs. Get your tickets at the door early to avoid disappointment.
