Netil 360

Panoramic London views meets feel good food and drink.

Netil 360 is one of Hackney’s most versatile spaces, with a café, a bar, a workspace for the local community and a gallery all under, or rather on top of, one roof.

As the building is South facing, you’re served a stunning view of London that stretches from Canary Wharf across to the recognisable shapes of the dominant City skyline. Netil’s rooftop is covered with artificial grass which is dotted with bean bags and pallet furniture. Complete with disco ball, flower beds and fairy lights, this is a real gem and definitely somewhere to spend a sunny Saturday.

Netil has real charm and character, something that probably lies in its community roots. Not only do they offer informal workspaces to local companies and start-ups free of charge; but their bar is stocked with beers from nearby Five Points brewery and spirits from the East London Liquor Company. It’s the combination of feel good refreshments and incredible views that make this place worth visiting.

When it comes to the food, Netil 360 change their menu fairly regularly. When we popped by they were serving Caribbean inspired street food, including curried goat and jerk cured salmon. But if that’s not your jam, try one of their Poptails alcoholic ice-lollies, which come in Melon Spritz, Peach Bellini, Amaretto Sour and Strawberry Mojitos flavours. 

Netil 360 is open Wednesday to Sunday every week and with summer fast approaching, this is definitely somewhere to put on your to do list.
