If you’re planning an event in and around the Hackney Wick area and want a unique setting that will help it stand out from the crowd, look no further than the following hand-picked selection of much sought-after spaces.
White Post Hackney is found in the very heart of central Hackney Wick alongside the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and right by the edge of the canal. Available for both partial and full hire for everything from product launches to wedding receptions, this large Atrium style venue benefits from a bright, airy feel courtesy of the high ceilings and full-length windows. This in turn grants the space a contemporary, professional flair that perfectly encapsulates the life/work vibe that the area is famous for.
Part of the CRATE family, The Brewshed is housed within a converted warehouse, meaning the space boasts extensive exposed raw brickwork that contrasts with the shiny brew tanks for a fantastic urban and industrial flavour. The fully operational commercial kitchen means that organising catering poses no problem, and with the team more than happy to work alongside you to ensure the space meets your particular needs, this really is an adaptable offering.
MOTHER Juice Works has been specifically designed with creativity and tranquillity in mind. This, combined with its relatively more intimate capacity of 80 means that it’s the ideal space for low-key events with all the quality and none of the fuss. The selection of live plants dotted throughout the space and the abundance of daylight flooding in through the full-length windows enhance the calming nature that makes this one-of-a-kind venue so appealing for any occasion where connectivity is encouraged.
Mick’s Garage is open throughout the weekend from 6pm on Friday evening and midday on Saturday and Sunday, hosting a range of private and public events. Found within the buzzing Queens Yard, it is comprised of a coffee roaster; SHUK SHUK, a market BBQ, and Jarr Barr, which serves the CRATE core range and delicious house brewed kombucha. Ideal for large-scale gatherings, the total capacity is a very generous 1000, with Hackney Wick and Stratford stations being the nearest transport links at your disposal.
Alfred Leroy may look like a regular wide beam canal boat from the outside, but the interior has been completely transformed into a truly unique cocktail bar, making an event held here a waterside experience with a difference. Cocktails, beers, wine, prosecco and sharing platters make up the menu, and back on dry ground, Hackney Wick station can be reached in a mere 2 minutes. With a capacity of just 50, it’s a particularly good choice should you want to bring a more personal approach to the hosting.
