Every Wednesday


Rolling Stock is a flourishing arts destination taking pride of place on Kingsland Road. Complete with a bar, gallery, beer garden and a buzzing underground dance space, it’s a thriving hotspot for all manner of East London creatives.

The venue is best known for its DJ nights, with the powers-that-be striving to ensure that a string of top artists are always on hand to play long into the night. Rolling Stock offers a good coverage of craft beer, wines and plenty of quirky cocktails; we’d strongly tip checking out the JD-heavy Jack The Stripper or the whiskey, gin and lemon-infused Sleazy Geeza.

Take in the cutting-edge art or pop outside to the spacious beer garden area, where striking murals provide a stunning backdrop. There’s two private areas within the main bar which can cater for anywhere between 10 and 120 guests, and the venue has bags of experience hosting birthdays, corporate events, film shots and fashion shows.

Beer garden is nice but the vibe inside is a bit seedy and the other customers were a bit rough so ended up going somewhere else. Has lots of potential! Visited Rolling Stock on 2018-05-19

I went to Rolling Stock for my 28th birthday with 20 of my friends and the whole experience was amazing! Really good/honest booking policy (kudos to Mihai for taking care of everything!), very decent/affordable drinks selection, spacious sitting area and a terrific DJ set. Will definitely come back.

We held our work Christmas party at Rolling Stock, and it was an absolute success. All the way through the booking and planning process Jono was friendly and accommodating, making sure that everything was just right for us, I couldn't recommend the team and the venue more. I've been told by many people that it was the best Christmas party ever, and we couldn't have done it without Rolling Stock. The team's professionalism and the venue's quirky ambiance combined to make it an unforgettable evening - a true five star experience and we shall definitely be back!

A group of about 20 of us had a really fun night here, they have some great areas to book! Unfortunately though I had paid a booking fee when I arrived they didn't seem to have my booking recorded but they were helpful and quick to find a new area for us. I'd definitely go back!

Staff were very friendly, place was great and they played amazing music towards the end of the night. Veggie burger wasn't the best and for some reason, they closed the beer garden very early Visited Rolling Stock on 2017-05-19

I absolutely love Rolling Stock. I had a night out there before Christmas which was brilliant so decided it was the perfect venue for my birthday. The atmosphere is great, it's not so busy you can't drink/dance but plenty of people there that it doesn't feel empty. SO good. Visited Rolling Stock on 2017-02-10

Great, stylish venue, fantastic food and friendly staff. DJ was great too! My guests really enjoyed their night as did I, the birthday girl:-) Jono was great with the correspondence and organising and advising for my 40th which became an unforgettable and fun night!! I would highly recommend this venue. Thank you!! Visited Rolling Stock on 2017-02-03

Mihai (sp?!), the manager who dealt with our booking was absolutely fantastic. Rolling Stock was the perfect location for our gathering: really cool seating area for chats, and a genius of a DJ that kept us dancing! You'll be hard pushed to find friendlier staff in a London bar! Will definitely be back. THANK YOU!! Visited Rolling Stock on 2016-12-03

I booked a large area (a large room and a smaller room) for my 40th birthday weeks in advance. The days leading up to the night, Jono was really helpful and gave us a great offer on drinks for my guests. The Saturday night was incredible! The music was fantastic. The bar staff were helpful and patient. We had an unforgettable night. I did however get told that an area that was reserved for me, wasn't, and that it was for someone else. I had it cleared out none the less, but no one occupied it the whole evening. The toilets are in need of some tlc, but overall, we all had a brilliant night. Would recommend Rolling Stock to anyone.

Fantastic night. Staff were incredible, and the venue was great fun - and we were given a fantastic area. Celebrated a birthday or two with a group of around 40 and they couldn't do enough. Good music too - highly recommended! Visited Rolling Stock on 2016-10-29

Came here for my birthday on a Saturday and had a good night. We had the private area and it was nice to have a space for just us. The only time we had to venture outside of our area was for the bar or toilet which were busy. Queues for the bar were fine and drinks were reasonably priced. Music was 90's so we recognised quite a few songs! I had bottles of alcohol given as gifts which I carried on me into the venue, one doorman was really nice and let me put them in the cloakroom for free. On the way out he wasn't there and the other doorman was very moody and unhelpful when I asked if I could collect my bags. Luckily I eventually found the first doorman back inside. All in all, I would recommend! Nice brickwork decor. Visited Rolling Stock on 2016-10-08

Amazing place to chill and relax with your mates. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and chilled night out. The prices weren't too bad and the staff were nice aswell.

After having some high expectations based on reviews and the pictures, I was disappointed in the venue. The cushion on the seats were broken and damaged, the toilets every very dirty and the outdoor space which I was looking forward to,, was closed... They had the incorrect time as the booking. I was going to be late and I tried to call the bar about ten times and no response, I even tried to call the guy that organised the booking and again no response. The staff are lovely and I cant fault them. Probably wont attend this venue again. Visited Rolling Stock on 2016-08-20

The guys at Rolling Stock were fantastic. They were very helpful when I made the booking, contacting me to check if there were any special requirements. They held our area even though we was running late (sorry). They looked after us throughout the night checking if we were ok. Awesome music and great atmosphere. Would highly recommend!!

We came in the winter (when it was raining) and it was practically deserted, but I can't understand why! Really friendly staff and a cool space, will be back to check out the massive outdoor area come summertime

What an amazing and unique venue, what great staff too, Jono was so incredibly helpful there is nothing that he couldn't sort out... The smoothest event we have ever planned as the staff made it go swimmingly! I would massively recommend this venue and am probably going to book another there...

Came here for my 24th on a Saturday. The staff was absolutely lovely and made sure our party had a place to sit despite being over an hour late to our reservation (and a few people short). Unpretentious, chilled out, and extremely reasonably priced...I won't hesitate to bring friends here again. Fantastic night out and definitely worth a try if you are in the area!
