If you’re gagging for festival season already, why not get warmed up for the summer at Number 90 Bar & Kitchen’s 4th birthday party. The canalside venue in Hackney Wick is opening its doors for a four-day party. From 1-4 March, Number 90 will be hosting live music, DJs, interactive entertainment, and of course, its signature yummy food and drink offerings. Every day will have a different theme, offering a wide variety of activities and entertainment.
The festivities will commence on Thursday with an evening inspired by World Music Day. Guests will be entertained with a variety of different genres, from jazzy, funk and soul driven band, The Haggis Horns; to alt pop band, Toytown Hustle; to multinational gypsy folk group Dila V & The Oddbeats, among others. Meanwhile, fashion lovers will enjoy the vintage clothing stall, while budding artists can check out live painting sessions with Number Gallery artists, who will be creating murals throughout the weekend.
Friday evening will be celebrating womankind with Womb 2: Women Of Music Business led by Capital Xtra’s Coco Cole, festival mainstays My Bad Sister, local DJ duo Four Tit, rising star Loraine James, Aziza and SISU Crew. The event will celebrate women in music, art, fashion and business bringing together some of the most talented females from the dance and music industry. Expect female-focused film screenings, talks, DJ workshops and more.
The arrival of the weekend will see DJ legend Norman Jay headlining a block party, as Number 90 host a day bash on their canalside terrace on Saturday. Jay will be putting on two special performances, bringing his famous ‘Good Times’ to the party bus, before moving the revelry indoors until the early hours. As well as the dancing to the best tunes, revellers can win prizes in giant Piñatas, try to outwit a magician or sample the extensive cocktail menu. Joining Norman on the decks will be Backtobasics resident, Tristan da Cunha and Ron Basejam of Crazy P.
Finally, the four-day party will come to a chilled closing on Sunday with a range of live musical performances from The Pop-Up Choir, a live electronic set from This Is A Recording and an open jam session from neo soul band Re.Wind. Throughout the weekend, customers can also order delicious food and drink from the new summer menu.
