A Little About This Space

In the middle of a row of independent quirky, creative shops along Hackney Road is this retail space to let. Formerly a skate store with a cult following, this shop includes a spacious back room and a counter that doubles up as space for a DJ booth.

Visitors to Hackney Road and neighbouring Columbia Road have fairly eclectic taste, but it’s not all frivolous. Expect cosmopolitan, trendy, creative types in there 20s to 40s. It's mostly East London locals, with the occasional tourist coming to and from the city's favourite flower market on Sundays. Hackney Road is most active in the evenings and on weekends as visitors spill out from nearby markets and bars like the well-known Alice in Wonderland-inspired Looking Glass cocktail club a few doors down.


You’ll be keeping company with a recording studio, independent furniture shops, and antique traders, as well as barbers, takeaways, and newsagents. Cafe 12, a small café and bistro, is on one side, and on the other is a hip home accessories boutique. Across the road is a block of flats and another small row of shops.
