WICK-ED PLACES TO GO TO AFTER WORK IN HACKNEY WICK
Hackney Wick has renounced its former title for being the desolate industrial hot spot of London. Since the 2012 Olympic Games, the area’s regeneration has transformed Hackney Wick into a thriving business district. The vibrant commercial quarter oozes coolness with eclectic street art, and an array of trendy bars and restaurants. Hackney Wick trumpets individuality and creativity which is why we think it’s become London’s most exciting destination to work.
The flourishing area is abounding with bars and breweries, so there’s no shortage of fun ways to unwind on a Friday evening. Here are some cool bars and restaurants to go let loose at after work:
Number 90 Bar and Kitchen
Wallis Rd, Hackney Wick, London E9 5LN
Looking for somewhere that dovetails sophistication and originality, Number 90 Bar is a canal-side bar that offers a wide range of innovative cocktails and craft beers. And if you’re looking for somewhere that quenches your artistic desires, the establishment has a small in-house gallery that celebrates Hackney Wick’s quirky artistic culture. It’s where Parks and Recreation’s The Snakehouse Lounge meets Art Deco. Only far less Snakejuice and more delicious beverages and food.
Howling Hops Brewery
Queens Yard, Hackney Wick, London, E9 5EN
Passionate about beer, the microbrewery prides itself for being the UK’s first tank bar. Howling Hops have a diverse range of craft beers brewed on site with four core beers brewed all year-round. There’s no funny business when it comes to enjoying beer, as the watering hole’s rows and rows of stripped back sharing tables mean that nothing can come in between you and your beer. Craft beer. Chilled vibes. Sign us up.
Queen’s Yard, Hackney Wick, London E9 5EN
Pizza. Check. Expansive range of beers. Check. Cool canal-side space. Check. Zero-waste dining. Check. We can emphatically say that Crate Brewery is one of the most affable places to unwind with work mates after a gruelling week of hard labour. A tasty and sustainable way to blow off some steam.
Even better, these uber-cool establishments are only a stone’s throw away from Bagel Factory and Stonemasons Yard; Hackney Wick’s newest and trendiest mixed-use developments. And excitingly, there is still commercial space available to rent or to buy within these spacious developments.
