Moonbow Jakes in Margate

Do you miss Moonbow Jakes? Not so long ago the cafe/bar occupied the space now filled by the Brockley Mess, and before that there was the cafe in New Cross. Moonbow John McKiernan is still doing interesting stuff locally, such as helping to put on the Brockley cemetery remembrance events.

For the summer only a temporary Moonbow Jakes will appear in Margate, opposite the lido in Cliftonville, a 3 minute walk from the new Turner Contemporary Gallery. There's a Private View on Thursday 26th May from 6pm, then it's open over the bank holiday on Saturday 28th May and Monday 30th May from Midday to Midnight

You are 'Welcome to play, perform, dance, sing or just drink beer and get sun-burnt on the beach opposite' at Moonbow Jakes, 18 Cliff Terrace (opp Lido), Margate, CT9 1RU (picture is of the place before its reinvention as a little slice of South East London on sea).
