Dinerama, Shoreditch


Enjoy al-fresco dining in summer but can’t, like me, be bothered packing a picnic or organising a BBQ? Dinerama, the latest food popup by the hugely popular Street Feast, may just be the place for you.

Located just around the corner from Shoreditch High Street Station, a former bullion vault and armoured truck depot has been transformed into a colourful foodie haven holding up to 1000 people.

This is the third venture from Jonathan Downey (founder of Milk and Honey) and his new partner Henry Dimbleby (the man behind Leon). They have once again used their bar and restaurant experience to put together an eclectic variety of eateries to suit every taste including six street diners, five street food shacks, six bars and street food trucks serving up a high quality cuisine inspired from around the globe. These include BBQ Lab, B.O.B’s Lobster, Duck ‘N’ Roll, Chuck Burgers, Rainbo (one of my personal favourites), Busan BBQ, Smoketak, Breddos Tacos, Yum Bun, Shack Tandoor, Bird Box and Fundi Pizza.

Strolling past the vintage van that is Chuck Burgers into the main arena, I was hugely impressed with the design of Dinerama, they had not simply parked up a few vans in an old yard but had transformed it into a two story social hangout.

Sitting in the shadow of the City of London, this place could not be more different from the glossy skyscrapers, with scaffolding, platforms, barrels, shipping containers, rainbow and neon lighting creating a vibrant place that was perfect to transcend from picnic to party.

This style of beautifully put together industrial is completely to my taste and very much reminded me of NDSM Werf, one of my favourite areas in Amsterdam.

I was so upset to just have eaten before meeting the boys from Shed Collective as there were so many phenomenal food choices. After walking around and taking in the sites and smells (at least a couple of times) they settle on Smokestak for some serious BBQ buns which seamed to go down a treat from what I could tell from the silence then grunts of approval.

Next up was to check out one of the 6 bars, opting for a frozen piña colada from the upper platform. The tropical flavours and little umbrella made me feel like I was on holiday instead of my home city.

Even after only one visit I can tell that this is going to be one of my top summer hangouts.

The market is open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday until 4th October and is Free before 7pm and £3 after on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

Are you guys a fan of street food? Are there any places I should check out?

  1. I went there a couple of weeks ago and loved it. I’ve had a couple of hit and misses with Street Feast. Dalston Yard is awesome but Hawker House was like a horrible haunted mansion full of bitchy customers which I hated. Dinerama is my fave so far, with all of it’s different bars. Gin and Tequilla are my favourite spirits, so it was awesome they had exclusive bars for each.

      I skipped out on Hawker House after hearing similar reviews. I am so glad that they have stuck with the laid back Dalston Yard vibe. I have a feeling I am going to be at Dinerama allot this summer so if you want a spirit drinking buddy give me a shout x

      Eating at outdoor markets is one of my favourite things to do in summer and this one had so many choices I will definitely be a regular.

    Need to make a visit – love the whole street food thing, but I really like the way they have laid this out – it looks so big and spacious! x

    1. Emma says:

      Please let me know if you do check it out and what you think. They have done such a great job with the lay out, though it is not a huge space they have made it seem airy and bright.

  5. Looks so good! We are going to visit next week, quite excited! x
