Hackney is hardly lacking in places to grab a drink. Still one of London’s hippest boroughs, the area boasts a grand array of bars and nightlife spots in the city, not to mention some of the country’s best breweries.
But if you’re not in the mood for a cocktail bar, or if a taproom is just too hop-heavy for you, Hackney has some great boozers for you to sink yourself into. Whether you're after an authentic and uncomplicated Irish pub, a spot that also offers vegan food or somewhere you can duck into after a day in the park, Hackney’s pubs cater to everyone.
