About Time: You Visited Hackney Bridge, East London’s Newest Cultural DestinationBy Claudine Levy
From the team behind Pop Brixton and Peckham Levels comes Hackney Bridge: East London’s newest cultural destination.
Situated in a prime canalside location in Hackney Wick, the venue’s vibrant outdoor dining space, The Courtyard, is open for bookings and walk-ins. The perfect spot for alfresco drinking and dining, the space features a bar serving cocktails, local craft beer and speciality wine, plus a wide-range of street food from some of London’s best-loved traders.
Street food in Hackney Bridge’s The Courtyard comes courtesy of seven traders all from Hackney and the surrounding areas. For those looking for a classic East End treat, The Jewish Deli are onsite with traditionally-made hot salt beef, bagels, latkes, falafel and Reuben sandwiches.
Seafood fans can expect delicious soft shell crab and fish burgers from Da Fish Ting, and meat-lovers can rejoice, as STEAKhaus are on hand to deliver succulent and sustainable steak and chips, and Filigrillz are serving up authentic Filipino flame-grilled meats and combos. Elsewhere, Hermanos Taco House is dishing up mouth-watering tacos and burritos with a twist, and fans of Italian cuisine can enjoy classic Neapolitan pizzas from Made in Puglia, and fresh, seasonal pasta dishes from Pasta E Basta.
As well as a bar serving delicious cocktails and the very best craft beer London has to offer, guests at The Courtyard can also expect speciality wines from Silver Lining, the UK’s first dedicated orange and natural skin contact wine bar. For those looking for a mid-week tipple, cocktails at Hackney Bridge will be half price all-day every Thursday. Accompanying the food and drink offering at The Courtyard will be a number of great events throughout the summer, including screenings of the Euros and select Wimbledon matches on a giant 2m X 3.5m outdoor screen.
