Where do E9 locals go?

Swing Patrol Victoria Park

I love the beginner swing dance classes at The Royal Inn on the Park every Tuesday. The classes are fun, the teachers and students are friendly and the dancing is great! A great way to meet new people, get some exercise and, of course, learn to dance.

Hackney Walk

The upcoming home for fashion designers. Hackney Walk is a fashion district located within East London. It is a new ultimate luxury shopping experience that consists of many major and luxury designer brands. Hackney Walk is a trendy hub for great urban food, leisure and community activities. It is amazing, as Hackney is such a diverse and energetic area in London!

Victoria Park

Skateboarding through Victoria Park is a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Possibly heading to Broadway Market after to find coffee and more than likely after a few skateboard tricks, a pharmacy.

Pavilion Café

A great place to grab a coffee, freshly prepared snacks or cake, while overlooking one of Victoria Park's lakes.

Chesham Arms

A revival of an old local boozer, residents fought hard to prevent this building being turned into flats and won after it was granted to be an 'asset of community value'!

Hackney Picturehouse

A great cinema that shows a lot of special screenings and q&a sessions, as well as popular Hollywood films.

Brew for Two at St John's

This delightful café in the garden of St John-at-Hackney Church is great for an al fresco lunch when the weather is kind! Homemade burgers, cakes, sweet & sour crepes and Monmouth coffee!!!

Hackney Fresh

I often pop in to this fruit and veg shop for their fresh produce and a coffee. Very handy!

The Copper Box Arena

As well as an arena for sporting events, you can use the gym facilities too.

Tonkotsu

Excellent homemade noodles, ramen and lots more. It's got a well-stocked bar too!

The Bonneville

Located in Lower Clapton, The Bonneville is a quirky low-lit brasserie with a French-inspired menu and cocktails. Its décor is striking and cocktails speak for themselves. It is a must visit if you are a foody!

The Advisory

The best burger in Hackney and delicious sides too!

Patty & Bun

The best burgers in London under London Fields railway arches!

COFFEE8

I always make a quick pit stop at this coffee van on the Narrow Way in the morning.

Pub on the Park

On the border of London Fields, its a fantastic pub with a big outdoor area and reasonable drink prices too.

"Most trendy food street in east London. Drastically improved environment, and above all good / sophisticated people moving in. Excellent access to Overground, Olympic park and Homerton Hospital"

"The park is amazing, the festivals, sports facilities and open green spaces are fantastic, but the 'village' is what makes our area. North of the park are period lined streets, centered around a wonderful hotchpotch of restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Pop down on a summer afternoon and you'll discover why this beautiful little village in the coolest area of London is the best place to live."

June 2012

Local resident

"The village feel, particulary on Lauriston Road with loads of restaurants, cafes and boutqiue shops. Also Victoria Park is such an amazing park to live next to, festivals in the summer, great place for picnics, great playgrounds and sports facilities."
