Lo-fi bar with hi-fi intentions, hidden beneath the Narrow Way, Hackney Central.

Behind This Wall is a relaxed basement bar with a warm, vintage sound-system. Service is all-seated so bookings are highly recommended.

The bar serves mixed drinks, hard seltzers (built and bottled in-house), cold beer and select wines.

All our products and ingredients are selected or built to exclude artificial additives, colours & flavours, high fructose, corn-syrup and unnecessary sugar.

To accompany, we offer bar snax and you can always order a Yard Sale Pizza to site.

    Lovely chilled vibe for drinks and chats. Lovely speak easy and the cocktails are great. Old fashioned (whiskey and rum) is very good.

    This place is fantastic, I can’t express how much I like this bar. Such a cool vibe, amazing cocktails and great value for London. It’s a great little intimate spot for couples or small groups to enjoy some great drinks. I’ll be back for sure!
