⌥ Delve down a dimly-lit flight of stairs at 411 MARE ST.; behind this wall is a contemporary neighbourhood 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. You can BOOK A TABLE /AREA with us or HIRE out the whole space for yourself. Walk-ins are always welcome.

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

⌁ Through music & community, BTW additionally houses a recording imprint & studio known as THE RUSHES; we also offer complete bar services & packages for events.

⇢ BTW, the bar serves: cocktails, wines & beers; oysters, poké bowls & bar snacks; soundtracking via our one deck custom hi-fi. Happy hour runs from 6 – 8 pm daily ☻
