Route / Schedule
14:00 hrs. Meet @ Hackney Central Underground Station
14:15 Baxter Court
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.
Address: 282–284 Mare Street, E8 1HE
A collection of doors on the front, and a great creative cafe, bar and hub for independent businesses inside. There is always plenty going on, from live music to live set and art exhibitions.
Address:8 MacKintosh Ln, E9 6AB
16:00 The Kenton
A young and bohemian crowd in a local boozer. The interior mixes candlelit antiques and modern curiosities. Good range of beers and a modest variety of food.
Address: 38 Kenton Rd, E9 7AB
17:00 The Lauriston
Casual brick-walled pub with stone-baked pizza menu, live gigs, karaoke and weekend DJs.
Address: 162 Victoria Park Rd, E9 7JN
18:00 The People’s Park Tavern
Village pub and microbrewery beside Victoria Park. Traditional pub food, great garden and a strong line-up of gins as well. Very friendly staff and crowd.
Address: 360 Victoria Park Rd, E9 7BT
19:00 Mason & Company
A hipster scene with Italian-American street food, numerous craft beers (20 on tap) and canalside dining. They offer regular special events and tastings as well.
Address: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, 25 E Bay Ln, E20 3BS
20:00 Number 90
A bustling pub, restaurant and art gallery, with live music, DJs and a huge waterside terrace. Great food with all produce locally sourced, an infused cocktail and expansive drinks menu.
Address: 90 Wallis Rd, E9 5LN
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
