The Russet is located in the midst of Hackney Downs Studios; a hub of creativity and collaboration. Set away from the main road it is neighbour to artist's studios, a theatre and art gallery. It is in the heart of East London and walking distance from Hackney, Dalston and Stoke Newington, all of which have great transport links.
WHO WE ARE
The Russet is an Arts Cafe and Events Space. It is full of character with a rustic and creative vibe.
The cafe serves fresh food and drinks, as well as being host to a range of parties and events.
WHAT WE ARE OPEN TO
The space is great for markets, pop-up restaurants, pop-up shops, film screenings, exhibitions, workshops and gigs. It also creates the perfect setting and atmosphere for parties and weddings.
When hiring the space one can bring in their own catering, but we also have an in-house team of chefs and staff who can provide the necessary requirements for all events.
At the front of The Russet is a dining area, a small cosy area with comfy sofas and chairs and a bar. This space measures 3 metres x 20 metres and looks out on to the terrace and village green. It is an ideal space for restaurant pop-ups, gigs and parties.
At the rear we have a large events space which measures 6 metres x 12 metres. This area has it's own bar, leads onto a garden and works well as a dining area or open space. It creates a good environment for exhibitions, film screenings, markets, pop-up shops, parties and gigs.
The Russet can provide a sound system, wi-fi and has disabled access.
The spaces are available to hire for day, evening and late night events. Prices are dependant on the type of event and time so e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for any enquiries.
