The Arches


The Arches sits in South Bethnal Green and has sprung up as an eclectic, contemporary, urban destination in Railway Arches in East London, with two bars, a cafe and a huge multipurpose events space.

One archway serves as the second site for Coffee & beer specialists "640East". They serve amazing Caravan Roastery coffee, a selection of cold beer, cocktails and their all new Bubbles Menu; inspired by the previous tenant of the arch. 'Bubbles' the Car Wash.

"Taproom by Bethnal Green" occupies the other arch; a fun, funky space serving East 24 East London beers from truly local breweries. With fun retro videos on display above the bar and an old School Playstation in the corner, you couldn't ask for a better hang out spot.
