Introducing Pitch Stratford:
A new outdoor terrace, bar and event space in East London

This summer sees the arrival of alfresco drinking, dining and event space Pitch Stratford, which officially opened its doors in April 2019. Located at Bridge Street, the space has been transformed into a Moroccan riad inspired backdrop, with street-food vendors, a tiki-inspired drinks menu, alongside an exciting schedule of music events, cinema screenings and supper-clubs throughout the summer months.

A short walk from Stratford International Station, Pitch Stratford has a stripped-back design of a light blue and purple colour palette, complemented with woven lanterns, festoon lighting and greenery punctuating the space. There are wooden Moroccan-inspired dining booths, adorned with bold patterns and hessian cushioned seating; designed for group bookings with table service, along with a green for outdoor games, and a 196” HD screen for cinema and sport screenings

The Drinks

At the heart of Pitch Stratford are the drinks. Cocktails are based around the concept of alternative Tiki, using influences from around the world to give a new twist on some of the most popular and delicious classic serves.

Drinks include Friskey Sour (Woodford Reserve Bourbon, Fino Sherry, Tiki Tiki Sherbet, Pineapple and Citrus), Gin + Loose (Bombay Sapphire Gin, Tropical Fruits, Tiki Shrub, Citrus and Fizz), and Tiny Dancer (Bacardi Carta Blanca, Cocchi Rosa, Pandan Sherbet and Mole Bitters).

There is also beer from local East London brewery Signature Brewing, as well as cider and alcoholic ginger beer from Umbrella Brewing.

The Food

An exciting variety of dining options are available from a stellar line up of some of London’s best quality and emerging street-food vendors. Permanent street food options are on offer, including Pakistani street-food and experimental supper-club specialists Empress Market, with one rotating guest street food truck to be announced via the venue’s social media channels.

From 16th June, Empress Market will also introduce a weekend boozy brunch, hosted every Saturday from 12pm to 3pm. Guests can dine on delights including the likes of Spiced Omelette, Extra Full-English Pakistani Breakfast or Cardamom French Toast, paired back with bottomless Bloody Mary’s or Buck’s Fizz, all at £25 per person.

There will also be regular supper-club events throughout the summer, kicking off with an Anglo-Indian themed dinner from Empress Market on Wednesday 5th June. Hosted on long banqueting tables, the four-course supper-club will include dishes such as Nargisi beef koftas (boiled eggs swaddled in spiced beef mince in a tomato masala) and Fish and potato rissoles served with devil’s chutney and yoghurt raita, paired with gin-based drinks, including the 1857 (Star of Bombay, pomegranate lassi, pistachio, chocolate) and the Star of Indus (Bombay Sapphire, kaffir lime, apricot and citrus).
