The Magic RoundaboutThe demolition of Old Street roundabout has been slightly delayed so the Magic Roundabout is back for a final winter, remaining open until 1st January 2019. The heated outdoor has been turned into a smoking hot slice of Latin America for its last few months. Transformed into Fiesta Del Magia, from Friday October 12th the main dancefloor becomes a Latin American town square complete with Frida's cocktail bar and an onsite chapel - the perfect place to confess sins. Located slap bang in the middle of Old Street roundabout and accessed via a secret staircase in the tube station, the unique residency has a DJ booth, dancefloor and a dodega which comfortably accommodates up to 35 guests with seating for up to 20. A top location for an Old Street bar crawl since June 2015 so don't miss your last chance to enjoy it.
