Behind This Wall


After having a Summer residency atop the Oval Space terrace, the team from Behind This Wall bring their first permanent residency to Hackney.

A haven for cool musical vibes, daytime drinking habits and parties that go late into the night, the Behind This Wall collective are promising to continue these trends at their new digs. Minimalist and a tribute to Martin Hannett's old Tannoy Gold speakers, this space is both contemporary and simplistic in design; a place where the music does the talking.

Esteemed bartender Alex Harris is behind the cocktail craft here where he's taken the 'Medicinal Mixology' template from the Behind This Wall's summer residency to create something distinct and original. Flying the flag for small-batch distillers and producers, the bar comes stocked with additive, colours and flavouring free ingredients so what you taste is honest, refined goodness. Expect botanical blends, herbal infusions and a seasonal approach to all the concoctions that come out of the bar. 
Keeping to the raw oyster bar of Behind This Wall, you'll also find dishes of the Hawaiian poke nature to tuck into.
