It’s now become a bit of a tradition, that each year, the good old bench outside 55DSL that offers so many people a spot to chill when the weather’s nice, gets a good old make-over ready for Summer. Now the sun has started to rear it’s head again of late, we’ll be doing our annual bash this coming Saturday, 24th April from 2pm.
I'll be outside reviving the bench back to life with a fresh lick of paint, whilst heavyweight DJ NICKNAME will be inside, playing a mix of Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and Beats.
Swing by, say hi, and who knows, we've the foosball tables outside and there might even be some free drinks too (not confirmed, so don’t quote me on that one!).
This will be a great chance to chill (especially if you’ve been the The Nextmen party that I’m playing at the night before ), and catch with the 55 crew before many of them move on to pastures new.
Come one, come all.
55DSL Flagship Store // 10 Newburgh St // London // April 24 2pm onwards
