Island Social Club has announced it is to take up a 35-cover permanent residency at exhibition space and coffee shop Curio Cabal, located in London’s Haggerston from 7 February.
The Caribbean social club and restaurant will offer 50% off food on the day of its launch at its first permanent location on Kingsland Road. Founded by Londoners, Marie Mitchell and Joseph Pilgrim, the restaurant is described as “a contemporary social space that shares modern British Caribbean culture through food and drink”.
Each night Island Social Club has promised to provide “a curated events programme, which together re-roots British Caribbean culture in Hackney”, and will also run a supper club for children.
Pilgrim said in a statement: “We feel that our experience is distinct from anything we’ve experienced on the British high street. We want Island Social Club to become an establishment that is a clear representation of our modern London lives.
“But also a space where we can explore and share our brilliant Caribbean heritage, from island culture to contemporary Black British culture.”
