Bringing together two of our favourite things, those being good food and good music, Seth “three times ADE cook-off champion” Troxler has has expanded his summer pop-up,¬†Smokey Tails, into a full time restaurant in the heart of London’s creative hub, Haggerston.

Featuring a menu that caters to the BBQ fans amongst us, the venture’s mainstay is to bring BBQ food into the 21st century in a similar fashion as to the recent trend for specialist burger joints (see Lucky Chip, Meatliquor, Patty 7 Bun et al) by taking an innovative approach to the concept. Coupling his homemade sauces and recipes with gourmet salads and frozen cocktails with regular parties featuring sets from world class DJs (collaborator and co-owner of their Vision Quest label, Ryan Crosson springs immediately to mind) Smokey Tails has turned the art of the BBQ into a year round party where food and music come hand in hand, a fact for which we’re grateful as, after all, who doesn’t love a bringing the spirit of summer to the long winter months?
