The Book Club BasecampThe Book Club will be turning the car park outside of their Shoreditch venue into a playground for adults this summer. Running for the duration of the Olympics, TBC Basecamp will be an alfresco pop-up featuring an outdoor bar, kitchen, games and big screens to watch all the Olympic action on. With an eccentric British theme, the playground will have everything a proud Britain could wish for - an ice cream van, table football, ping pong, a paddling pool and, of course, Pimms by the pint. Drinking is strongly encouraged as the bar will also be serving End It Like Beckham Cocktails, Mojitos, and lashings of cider and real ale. Following true Book Club style, entertainment will come in the form of live graffiti art set against a raw concrete backdrop. The fortnight's festivities will conclude with a closing party on the 12th August. The Ultimate Social Athletes party runs from 10am-10pm and will include team-based shenanigans such as beer pong, ping pong and tug-of-war.

 

About The Book Club

A venue desperately trying to stand out from all the other 'cool' or 'trendy' places in London's up and coming cool capital, Shoreditch, The Book Club definitely deserves its place in the running. Trying to create a new cultural revolution, the Scandinavian designed bar's aim is to fuse alcohol with brain power, every 20 to 30 year olds mantra. More about The Book Club
