107 Love It
Save it

From the team behind Night Tales, a '90s-themed cocktail bar with food provided by Morty & Bob’s. Weekends there is a DJ.

Rejoice, Night Tales fans! Your favourite pop-up has popped up permanently in an indoor venue just in time for the crappiest of the crap weather. The newest addition to Netil House, this café-by-day/cocktail-bar-by-night has a similar vibe to its seasonal counterpart: good food, DJs and (obvs) innovative cocktails.

Up just enough stairs to remind you that you haven’t been to gym lately, the space channels warehouse chic, softened with leather chairs, communal tables and potted plants, all bathed in a pink neon hue that renders Instagram filters redundant. It’s like hanging out at the New York-style apartment of a friend who’s cooler and more successful than you.

NT’s cocktail list includes interesting twists while managing to remain unfussy: no bells and whistles for the sake of it. Bar staff get through a small forest of straws with their perfectionist tasting – bad for the environment but good for your tastebuds. The Con Man – fusing rum, bitters, ginger and whisky – tastes seductively medicinal but trust us: it’ll do you more harm than good in the long run. Coriander Southside had an interesting herbal bite, but not enough to make us feel like we’d stumbled into a curry house. Cocktails range from £8 to £9.50. 

Food, like the drinks, is kept simple: glorious toasties from Morty & Bobs. We pimped ours with mushrooms and truffle oil. 

We loved the seriously sexy, funky beats which had us Shazamming all night. And while there might not be a dance floor, stay long enough and you’ll see a suitably lubricated crowd take the mood from laidback lounge to house-party good times. NT’s does everything right. Go there.

Aesthetically - ON POINT!

Love NT'S. Drinks are always on point & music is always solid. 


My friend and I were just at Broadway market and wanted a place to sit down and we stumbled on this precious little place!  It’s a perfect fusion of everything I love.
Rooftop- check. Great food- check. Location- check. Perfect interiors- check check check!!!!

I’d pretty much move in here if I could. Because It’s owned by people who brought us Night Tales, they care about their food. I had a mean grilled cheese sandwich, but I believe they change their offer on regular basis. Whenever I find a place I really, really love, I get sad at the same time, because I know it is probably popular and whenever I come back, will be very busy.
Hopefully I will always find a spot here, if for nothing else, to soak in the cool atmosphere and to enjoy the many plants they have wonderfully set up inside, which is totally my inspo for plants in my flat.


This place is the perfect hybrid between a restaurant, a bar, a terrace and what have you. It's so good here. The vibes are great, the food is delectable (when I went recently they had a kitchen takeover by Claw, who specialise in dishes with crab in them--amazing!), the drinks are delicious, music is dope and it's cozy as hell. A real London treasure. 

Really spent awesome times there. From
Staff, to cocktails, to decoration, to outside smokers area to music ... Everything is lovely and chosen with fine taste, which makes spending time
there really enjoyable.

Quite simply the best bar in Hackeny, East london and even England!! cool space,. great crowd, superb cocktails...a little slice of Brooklyn in East London!

Guaranteed great atmosphere, good crowds, the BEST cocktails and staff so pleasant and friendly always. Love this bar !! Such character and individuality. 10 stars !

Great venue and atmosphere,nice cocktails at reasonable price. Check out the terrace that is the perfect spot when the sun is shining .

best cocktails, great space & views and live music too. Lovely team also!

This place has everything you need, great cocktails, great tunes, great atmosphere and a great outside area. To summarise NTs is blooming great!!! :)

If you enjoy standing outside in the cold for an hour while the bar managers ex-girlfriends/ sisters dog sitter and their entourage (what effectively seemed like the whole of West London) queue jump ahead of you while the bouncer turns a blind eye then this is the place for you!
