For a more Italian approach to your social life, head to one of these Aperol Spritz socials popping up inside Shoreditch’s Electric Light Station. Expect lots and lots of Aperol, and even more aperitivos. Renowned for its vibrant orange colour, the traditional Italian ice-breaker has spread globally. A series of festivals revolving the bitter spirit are hitting London this June, as Aperol-lovers come from far and wide to celebrate the unique drink in all of its glory.

The bright orange tipple derives from a secret recipe which has remained unchanged for nearly 100 years. A star during the ‘Aperitivo Hours’ in Italy, the traditional beverage marks the end of the working day and the beginning of an evenings play. From the first delicious sip, you’ll be transported to Italy as you start your evening with a dose of La Dolce Vita.

Lovers of the Italian beverage can row a boat across the ‘Aperol orange’ canal or relax under the pergola. Take a ride down the (we’re guessing orange) slide or jump on the Vespa carousel before grabbing a refreshing glass (or 5) of Aperol Spritz from the UK’s largest Aperol bar. Prepare to dance your night away against a smashing line up of DJ sets amongst other Aperol aficionados.
