For those, prices are just £25 for Monday - Thursday and £50 Friday - Sunday. You get the booth from 5pm - 10pm which will cover you for 2 matches.
All tables come with table service until restrictions are hopefully fully eased come June 21st! Thereafter, food and drink will be self-service from our bars.
Gazebos and private booths will continue to be operated via table service after June 21st.

FEDE (ITALOBOYZ) 16:00 - 19:45
Fede is part of the infamous long-time duo called Italoboyz. He is constantly touring around the world and collecting music from the most remote places on Earth.
Besides his major project, Fede loves to play a few intimate long sets, really different from a “club approach', where he can play really long slots and bring a special very eclectic selection from his collection, like a mix of funk, afro, jazz, balearic, new wave, cosmic Italo, dark-disco.
He loves to call it THE OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN.
Fede will be the perfect warm up party vibe to gear you up for the very first game of the tournament, his native Italy vs Turkey!

★ Location ★
We are located next to Hackney Wick station.
★ The Venue ★
There are two distinct spaces within HWK: “HWK Bar and Restaurant” and “The Lot”. HWK was originally a small cocktail and DJ bar that launched in Summer 2019 with an intimate interior courtyard that serves as an oasis in the industrial landscape of Hackney Wick.
As the bar itself was too small to comply to social distancing measures post lockdown, we initially focused on the interior courtyard and converted it into a restaurant and drinks area with seating. Professional sound was installed, providing drinks and diners with surround sound from the DJs in the bar.
Currently the restaurant isn't open. But the courtyard is open Wednesday - Sunday for drinks and we serve the same street food menu as we do In The Lot. There are DJs every Friday and Saturday.
The Lot is the space next door. A small parking lot that we converted over Summer 2020 in to Hackney Wick’s best outdoor venue, which has hosted plenty of DJs and parties, including REVIVEHER, A Guy Called Gerald, Nick The Record, James Priestley, Red Rack’em, Kiwi, Ray Many, Grace Sands, Kristy Harper, Eliza Rose and many, many more. Expect the best underground DJs from talented upcoming producers to legendary selectors, encompassing all manner of genres.
There is also roof over half of the space with heating below. We have a custom built, high fidelity sound system from East London Audio.
The Lot is fully COVID compliant, with plenty of seating all around, from the dance floor, to the front terrace and gazebos and private open-air booths. There is table service for drinks and food from our outdoor kitchen. After June 21st, those in the venue on our regular tables will need to go up to the bar to order their own food and drinks. Gazebos and private booths will continue to be served / waited on.
Both spaces have their own unique atmosphere and DJs. If you prefer intimacy and the music a little quieter, come to HWK Bar where you enjoy fantastic wines, cocktails and The Lot's street food, alongside some seriously excellent music selected by a varied roster of acclaimed record collectors.
And if you want the next best thing to a proper party in these strange times, book a table in The Lot!
Between June 11th - July 11th, The Lot places host to Euro 2020 and will show every single game, FREE of CHARGE! Simply e-mail email@example.com to arrange advanced bookings or turn up at the venue on a first come first served basis.
WHAT TO EXPECT
An open air venue in the heart of Hackney Wick, serving a wide selection of drinks and delicious street food every Thursday – Sunday. During The Euros however, we will be open every day to show EVERY GAME!

After June 21st, those on regular tables will have to order from our bars. Although, if you have booked one of our VIP gazebos or private booths, these will continue to receive table service.
