stour space cafe & bar
Stour Space in Hackney Wick is a proper little gem. As well as being home to over 40 creatives and being a multi-functional venue, Stour Space has a cafe & bar with a floating outdoor terrace on the River Lee. The cafe serves up a pretty bangin’ brunch menu, with everything from a Full English and Vegan Tofu Bap to Poached Eggs on Toast, and a pretty sweeeeet collection of homemade cakes and pastries; perfect for that afternoon pick me up. In the evening their attention turns to booze, with local beers, wines and cocktails on the menu – HELLO Aperol Spritz in the sun. Over the weekend the party atmosphere usually kicks in with DJs and live bands too.
But probably the best thing about this space is the fact all profits from the cafe & bar are re-invested into the running of Stour Space and helps to fund its artist’s studio, regular programme of art events, 20+ grassroots programmes on site and many local activities. Yes that means you are doing a good thing by eating and drinking – what’s not to like?!
