Last week the team from Red Door Ventures celebrated the launch of ‘Pitch’, a unique open-air cinema, drinking terrace and street food venue in Stratford.
The ambitious new space is a joint venture project with creative and outdoor ‘fun-architects’ ZAP Architecture and Red Door Ventures and promises to become a destination venue for Newham.
Pol Gallagher, owner of Zap Architecture says: “Stratford has undergone an incredible transformation since the London Olympics with thousands of young people in the area.
“Pitch is a feel-good, outdoor venue with a nod to the past. There’s a celebration of retro styling, with 80s & 90s influenced party booths and bright colours throughout the venue, as well as our favourite old films playing in the cinema space.”
The project will be able to host 400 sun-worshippers beneath its canopy and movies including BIG, Coming To America and The Truman Show will be aired on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays throughout the summer, with free entry seven days a week.
Kent Taylor, Managing Director for Red Door Ventures comments, “We are delighted to be involved in the project with ZAP Architecture. It offers something exciting and unique for Stratford and I know it will be really appealing to our residents. Seeing it first hand at the launch was impressive and it was wonderful to sample the array of street food available. I am sure it will be very popular throughout the summer months and beyond.”
Guests will enter through an incredible, custom-designed triangular ‘garden arch’, where they’ll be welcomed into a retro-themed space with an expansive sun terrace, wall art, party booths and an explosion of vibrant colours.
As the mouth-watering scent of street food from stalls including the Piadina Project, Kalimera Greek wraps and Ticos Hotdogs wafts across the summer breeze, visitors can relax on pre-booked tables or kick back with an ice cold beer or cocktail on the bean bags in the venue’s cinema area.
Pitch is located a stone’s throw from Stratford station and is less than 20 minutes from London Bridge, Canary Wharf, Bank, Camden and Shoreditch.
Pitch is an over 18s only venue and is open from 5pm - 11pm Mon - Fri and midday - 11pm weekends/ bank holidays, and tables can be booked for free at www.pitchstratford.com
