Hackney Wick

There's a real buzz along the west bank of the Lea, with Hackney Wick's Yard theatre and numerous galleries supported by a growing number of café-restaurants. On a hot day, the spaces outside Crate Brewery and, south of the Hertford Union canal, the Counter Café are rarely underused. But we're taken with the 2014 newcomer Number 90, which is a higgledy-piggledy mix of gig space, bar and restaurant – with a cracking Lea-side terrace, where you can even lounge in a moored narrowboat, at least until that afternoon's alt-folk combo appears to perform from it.

The food options include changing pop-ups (including a concession outside), but one wall is permanently occupied by a decent bar (we murdered a thyme-infused gin, grapefruit, mint and cider syrup cocktail) and Brazilian kitchen, serving the likes of farofa-crusted chicken heart skewers from the grill, or a brisket burger with bone marrow and chips. The food is competent rather than thrilling, but from an oversized deck chair outside you might wonder if there's a better spot in east London.

Good vibes, good music and a good selection of beers. Perfect for a few casual drinks down by the canal at the weekend or early evening but things get a bit more upbeat as the night rolls on. Service at the bar can be slow though.

best and most unpretentious place in Hackney wick to chill. Plus only place with regular music/bingo/comedy nights. The guys running it built everything themselves over the course of a year.

Number 90 is Hackneys hidden gem. A multi-talented restaurant, bar, events space and music venue the whole year round. An amazing, friendly team of staff who always make you feel welcome, great food, lovely cocktails and quite often, some
Of the best DJ's/musical talents in the world. All this set against the backdrop of the Olympic park......absolutely love this place. :)

This space has everything what east London needs ! I go there very often for exhibitions and bingo night . 


Giant mural at the front? Yes, you’re in Hackney and the best of it if you ask me.

This space is huge – loads of seats and areas to stand, so you and your friends can chat away all night. The terrace overlooks Queen Olympic Park and the river Lea which gives a calm, smooth vibe to the place. Menu is a bit small but food is great with burgers cooked to perfection. As for the drinks, try the cocktails. With unusual ingredients such as rosemary, jellybeans and guava juice, they’re full of surprising flavours.

And… (wait for it)… they have hot tubs. Yes, you read that correctly. For £20 to £25 per couple of hours, you can soak in the warm water, while drinking cocktails and looking at the barges passing by on the river. What more do you want?

This place is the bomb! Get yourself there.


Tucked away by a canal in an industrial estate in Hackney, this venue is definitely not somewhere you stumble across, rather make a decision to go to. With a newly decorated facade painted by graffiti artists, the place has an indoor area with DJs, food and cocktails, as well as an outdoor balcony area where smokers can indulge and chat. Everyone gets ushered inside at around 10pm due to noise affecting residents and the place closed at 11.30pm when previously I'd been there, it was open past midnight. Also, watch out for the smoke generated by the hot tub popup that's appeared next door. Those wood burners can gas you out if the wind is blowing the wrong way.
