The Magic RoundaboutAfter a successful summer season, the Magic Roundabout is back for winter. Located slap bang in the middle of Old Street roundabout and accessed via a secret staircase in the tube station, the unique residency has been transformed into a tented, heated decade inspired wonderland, paying homage to the '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s. Split into a number of themed areas, there will be flower power in the 1970s Playboy lounge, complete with sheepskins and a log fire; a bar with an all out '80s disco, futuristic art and palm trees; and a VIP area with '90s patterns and Fresh Prince colours . Street food will come from Burger Bear, Loaded Potato Skins and Smokin' Lotus, who will serve 11-hour slow smoked beef brisket with hoisin sauce and Japanese-style creamy potato salad mash. There will be a series of events throughout autumn and winter, including a Liquid D&B party from Sine and a Wasted Chic Christmas Market.
