In the centre of the venue, 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 — it’s always evolving.
In our first year of opening, we received critical praise from Jay Rayner at The Observer, The Nudge, Hackney Gazette and The Infatuation.
EartH Kitchen is currently open on evenings of theatre shows, as well as when there are events within the bar + kitchen space itself.
“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
Shuk: A street food pop-up at EartH
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. Think the most killer falafel, quality middle eastern ingredients, marinated meats, traditional family recipes, and fresh produce from Borough Market, all wrapped in a freshly baked pita.
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.
