Proud East


Based on the banks of the Regent's Canal, the Proud Group brings a beautiful restaurant, bar, pool room and events space to the water's edge. Proud East takes over from the space formerly known as the Proud Archivist, as this Haggerston haunt combines the glorious design of late 17th century coffeehouses with the modern atmosphere of a buzzing east London hotspot.

With eye-catching foliages, low-lighting and front row views of the canal. It opens bright and early for some brunch treats, serving Lunch, dinner with drinks as the day wears on. The serene heated outdoor terrace hosts Djs and pop up events

A lovely little spot to unwind or meet up with mates in a prized canal-side location, Proud East is also available for private hire; for events of all sizes, from birthday parties to weddings, with a capacity of 350 inside and room for an extra 100 on the terrace.
