up it was The Dolphin and now it’s The Joiners Arms who are in danger of losing their late licence. Two Hackney institutes – we mean where else can you party until 5am, meet the weird and wonderful revelers of East side and all with free condoms on the bar. Oh yes The Joiners Arms has given us many a wild night and now the police AKA total jobsworths want to make it shut at 12:30am.  NOOOOOOO!!!

If they do have to shut at 12:30am it means the bar will be no more as let’s face it no-one wants to go there before midnight so it wouldn’t be financially viable for them. The pub has offered to use only plastic glasses and install CCTV to help fight the cause but they also need you help, pledge your support by signing the petition online now.

The Joiners Arms, 116-118 Hackney Road, E2 7QL
