London // East: Deep in Hackney Wick

Hackney Wick is the peak of Hipster.  Deserted warehouses, artists, beards, tattoos and lots of edgy bars and restaurants that became uncool the second I walked in there…. Here are some suggestions based on what we did, saw, ate and drank.

First stop, Crate Brewery, an awesome bar and brewery in an old factory on the canal, serving its own brews and delicious pizzas.  Very hipster.  Next stop a short walk away, The Plough Bar at Swan Wharf, also very hipster. We had brunch the next morning at Look Mum, No Hands (very cute cyclist cafe with boss-approved breakfast and coffee options) which isn’t technically located in Hackney Wick, but it’s East London in South Hackney so whatevs.
