Bringing new life to this hub of the community venue, The Star by Hackney Downs acts as a showcase for Hackney's talented creatives, as well as a place to enjoy a friendly local-brewed pint or tipple, and a bite. Located on the corner of Queensdown Road and practically on the grass of Hackney Downs Park, this long-standing pub retains all the character of what was before, with a twist - so the original stand-out central bar is reminiscent of a carousel, the classic pub sign is preserved, and the large courtyard becomes a greener space.
The two upstairs function rooms are available for hire and are the perfect place for company socials, mid-week meetings and weekend birthdays or group parties - complete with access to their own bar. The karaoke room is a cosy gypsy caravan, with a psychic and illusionist on hand for hire. Expect magic tricks, palm-reading and mystical predictions to add that extra flair to your evening.
Following the success of our Sunday lunch pop up at The Star By Hackney Downs, we are looking for other interesting food concepts to install here and at our other pub in Kings Cross.
We're open to all ideas, but are particularly interested in Brunch offers, Saturday night kitchen takeovers or full kitchen takeovers. We have a private dining room adjacent to the kitchen in both venues which seats around 40 covers and have a late license till 1am at the weekends.
So, if you're a street food trader, creative chef or just someone with a really great idea, then get in touch...
