Rehab

Based in a former launderette site on Well Street, the original washing machine covers adorn the bathrooms at Machine No. 3. It's now here to clean up in a completely different way; bringing cocktails, organic wines and local craft beers to a unique, stripped-back space in Homerton. It's relaxed and bundles of fun, especially if you're partying at the weekends, when DJs play until 1am.
