Two Tribes, a small, independent brewer in the Tileyard, a stroll north of King’s Cross, will open the space – known as Campfire – on Saturday April 17.
Alongside the expected focus on beer, the courtyard will specialise in food cooked over fire and will open with a residency from Hackney’s rising barbecue specialists From The Ashes, a lockdown-born project that’s already built a cult following for its nduja-stuffed “Del Piero” doughnuts. Campfire will also host a series of special “takeover” nights, with friends of the restaurant joining to cook. First up will be Adam Handling, who’ll bring his typically intricate style and take it outdoors on Monday April 19 and Tuesday April 20.
Following Handling will be takeovers from Pilot Light chef Andrew Clarke, Ramael Scully of Scully St James’s, Chris Leach of Manteca and Genevive Taylor from Bristol Fire School.
Besides the food and drink, the brewery has long had an affinity with music – it’s taproom boasts Funktion-One soundsystem, more typically found in some of London’s top clubs – and will put a focus on al fresco DJ sets and gigs, with events will be organised by Pete Herbert, a DJ and producer who first made his name at Ibiza’s Cafe Del Mar, with input from DJ Leo Zero.
Two Tribes co-founder Justin Deighton said of the project: “I’m thrilled to see Campfire ignited this April, this project which has been many months in the planning is the perfect culmination of our vision for Two Tribes which brings together incredible food, great beer and talented entertainers right in our backyard.
“I’m delighted to have the From The Ashes team lead our residency programme and am looking forward to building our line up throughout 2021 and celebrating this with beer, music and food fans from all across London.”
