Escape to Freight Island

Restaurant - Global

Food hall meets music festival is how we’d describe Escape to Freight Island to anyone confused about what they’ll find at this regenerated rail depot beyond Piccadilly Station.

A team that includes key players from Festival No.6, Albert Hall, and Refuge, have taken a desolate industrial space and transformed it into something quite wonderful: a place that brings together exciting food with top DJs with family events with cultural ’happenings’ with cocktail and craft beer shenanigans.

Its mix of indoor and weather-proof outdoor space reflects the times – Escape to Freight Island was born in the summer of 2020 when we were first adjusting to the new rules of pandemic socialising. It was designed to make communal gatherings possible at a time when going out-out, and seeing live entertainment, was starting to feel like a thing of the past.

The world has opened up again since then and our options are plentiful once more. Yet we’re still queueing for this place, which says something very positive about what they’ve created there.
