London Pub Crawl. Hackney

After our successful posts about Brixton and Bermondsey pub crawls, we now present a third one, this time in the trendiest and coolest area in London, Hackney.

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

One of the 1000 JD Wetherspoons in the UK is always a good start. Low prices, questionable attendance, no music and funny carpets.  More information about this pub chain in our London FAQs.

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.

Address: 1A Amhurst Rd, E8 1LL
