What: Number 177 Bar & Kitchen
In a nutshell: Hoxton meets Berlin in this venue for food, drink, art and music
Summing it all up: With an emphasis on animal-free and gluten-free dining, plus a few burger and craft beers on tap, graffiti and a gallery, Number 90 Bar & Kitchen does a good job of transplanting a slice of of ultra-hip Berlin culture onto Hoxton Street, craft beers and all.
Hackney Wick’s Number 90 Bar & Kitchen is about to get a sister venue on Hoxton Street, the Number 177 Bar & Kitchen. It’s a veritable bingo sheet of East London trends - art, music, food and drink will all be given equal focus, and aside from the restaurant and bar there’ll be a gallery, a club room and a sliding wall of graffiti art. It’s all decked out in an industrial style that’s inspired by the “esteemed Berlin bar scene” - they’ve even gone to the trouble of getting in a street photo booth, which visitors to the German capital will be familiar with.
In terms of food, you’ll be able to get your hands on veggie, vegan and gluten-free dishes as well as lots of burgers, including one with blue cheese, a hefty veggie burger and a schnitzel burger. There’ll also be Jaegermeister ice cream - a flavour we can’t say we’ve come across before. If you're after a drink, there'll be creative cocktails, craft beer and while we haven't been informed so, we'd be surprised if Berlin soft drink staple Club Mate didn't make it onto the menu...
