The multi award winning Little Nan’s Bar, a traveling cocktail bar and High Tea parlour, is spoiling you all with High Tea & cocktails round their East London Summer and Autumn pop up Little Nan’s Rio Bar, a kitsch haven hidden in the secret vaults of the Rio Cinema in Dalston.

The Rio Cinema is an amazing, Grade II listed, independent Art Deco cinema in the Heart of Dalston. When growing up, Little Nan used to travel through ‘The Pipe’ (Blackwall tunnel) from her home in Deptford and used to sell ice-cream and sweets at the Rio Cinema on Wednesday & Saturday nights. She often spoke about the parties she attended in the basement back in the 1930’s!

(Don’t worry, Little Nan’s Tropical Den in Peckham is still open and loving life!)
