Dive down a dimly-lit flight of stairs at 411 MARE ST; Behind This Wall is a contemporary basement bar on the top of the NARROW WAY, Hackney Central. The bar was built and is run by friends, with a singular approach to design, music and drinking.

Walk-ins are always welcome but, you can book a booth with us (or hire out the whole space.)

A note on the hi-fi: the system has been assembled from composite (storied) parts from a ‘golden era’ of our native audio industry; with a myriad of complementary elements from Tannoy, Papworth, E.A.R. & JBL.
