In the centre, there’s our newly renovated bar, restaurant space, and performance stage for up-and-coming artists and performers, which also serves as a community space for local and social causes.
Set in the middle of our newly reclaimed world-class venue, EartH Kitchen has come a long way since its pool hall and crazy golf days. We worked with Transit Studios to turn the space into a fully-functioning restaurant and bar, later adding a state of the art sound system and lounge area where we now run a series of EartH Kitchen events focused on grassroots musical communities and up and coming artists.
In our first year of opening we have already received critical praise from Jay Rayner at The Observer, The Nudge, Hackney Gazette and The Infatuation.
Shuk became our new food pop-up in November 2019, focusing on super fresh stuffed pitas and salads inspired by chef Mark Jankel’s childhood memories of the vibrant multicultural food markets of Tel Aviv.
Their baker, Arik, is dedicated to supplying Shuk with soft fluffy pita using the same techniques used in the Carmel and Tikva markets of Tel Aviv, while Shuk’s ingredient supplier Omer relentlessly travels the region sourcing the best tahini, freshly ground spices, date honey and amba that are the cornerstones of their larder.
Shuk will be open to the public from 17:30 to 21:30 on nights when there are events in EartH Kitchen and EartH Theatre.
Swing by for a cocktail and stuffed pita before an EartH show, or come up to our monthly EartH Jam sessions to get a flavour for what goes on here – it’s always evolving. Please note, Shuk is walk-ins only, no reservations.
“The ambition of EartH Kitchen is matched only by the excitement that is engenders. The buzz in infectious, brimming with potential, we look forward to whatever it has in store.”Hackney Citizen
