This list (maybe leaving the first one out) can be seen as the Best Pubs in Hackney.

22:30 Oslo

Restaurant and club in a former railway station, for daytime snacks and an evening European menu. With a “Dark Nordic” theme, they offer an exciting music programme in a unique and large space (375 capacity upstairs and 250 downstairs).

They are open until late (3 am on weekends), so it is a good end for the pub crawl. For those who make it until the end, congratulations.
