Introducing Pitch Stratford: a lush outdoor terrace coming to East London
This summer will see the return of the alfresco drinking, dining and event space Pitch Stratford, which will officially open its doors on 8th April 2020. Located at Bridge Street, the space has been transformed into a lush jungle backdrop, with street-food vendors, a drinks menu curated by The Umbrella Project, 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 will have a stripped-back design - mosaic lanterns, woven cushions and lush greenery will punctuate the space. There will be wooden Moroccan-inspired dining booths; designed for group bookings, along with a green for outdoor games, and a 196” HD screen for cinema and sport screenings.
At the heart of Pitch Stratford will be the drinks. Curated by The Umbrella Project, the East London team behind renowned Discount Suit Company in Spitalfields, award winning Irish whiskey specialist The Sun Tavern in Bethnal Green and alternative brewery Umbrella Brewing. Cocktails will be 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. Beer will be from local East London brewery Signature Brewing and of course cider and alcoholic ginger beer from Umbrella Brewing
An exciting variety of dining options will be available from a stellar line up of some of London’s best quality and emerging street-food vendors, handpicked by At The Table. Three permanent street food options will be offered, with one rotating guest street food truck announced via the venue’s social media channels. The street food partners will also work with Pitch to provide a programme of compelling supper-club experiences. The full line up will be announced nearer the time.
During the week (Wednesdays to Fridays) resident DJs and house bands will share the stage, providing a playlist tailored to the East London audience. Outdoor cinema sessions and live sports events will be screened together with specially tailored food and drink experiences. At the weekends, Pitch will host ticketed “Pitch Presents...” music nights, including headline sets from acts including Norman Jay MBE, Jazzy B and Krept and Konan
With capacity for 400, the space is also available for exclusive hire, making it the perfect location for summer parties with extra games and activities available on request.
The Euros returns this year, harnessing the 196-inch HD screen, Pitch will be showing all of the FIFA World Cup games between 12th June and 12th July. Extended opening hours will help pack all the matches in over the summer making it an ideal location away from the overcrowded venues closer to the centre of London.
Location: Located deep in East London, and London’s most rapidly changing borough, the venue is close to transport links, so you don’t have to worry about how to get there. Westfield shopping center is just a walk away. And you won’t need to worry about getting home, either - within a stone’s throw of Stratford High Street station, Pitch offers Londoners an exciting new drinking space less than 20 minutes from London Bridge, Canary Wharf, Bank, Camden or Shoreditch. Pitch is a 4-minute walk from Stratford station.
