El Garito


El Garito is a little neighbourhood joint specialising in amazing cocktails, good vibes and live music. They offer a small selection of Spanish snacks, such as olives, pan con tomate and charcuterie. However, their real bread and butter is the intimate space they have created, with an incredible host of Hackney locals all descending upon the creative hub of Hackney Downs Studios. Paired with a cold drink in hand, El Garito makes for the perfect spot for a pre or post dinner watering hole, or even backdrop for that special event. 

El Garito is available 7 days a week for private hire. Their unique space is perfect for birthday parties, launch events, wedding cocktails - whatever your creative heart desires.

They will work with you to create a bespoke cocktail menu for your event, suggest suppliers for food & catering and can assist with music, DJ’s and staff.

They can accommodate parties of up to 30 guests inside, 50 with use of the outside space.
