★ 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. Now with restrictions lifted, we welcome guests in the bar and courtyard and have 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 amazing DJs.
So far this year, we’ve seen the likes of Phonica Records’ residency, Secretsundaze, A Guy Called Gerald, Nick The Record, Scott Fraser, Jonny Aux (Paranoid London), Alex Arnout, Mr. Beatnick, Italoboyz, Chris Read, Sean Johnston, Scott Fraser, Rory Phillips, Grainger, Toby Tobias, Soft Rocks, Good Block, Kristy Harper, Lulu Levan, Danielle Moore (Crazy P), Alexander Nut, Nathan Gregory Wilkins (Cowboy Rhythmbox), Ray Mang, Pete Herbert, Donna Leake, Flora Yin-Wong, Laila Sakini, Louise Chen, Daisha, Faro, Adonis DJs, Wes Baggaley, Jaye Ward and many more grace the decks, as well as parties hosted by Queen’s Yard Summer Party, Body Movements, Athens of the North, InTo The Woods, Carmina, Cartulis, Eco Disco, Guava Jamz, Anomalous, Abandon Silence, Not An Animal, Jigsaw, We Are The Sunset, Vicious Creatures, Audio Farm Festival, Crossbreed and REVIVEHER. In addition, we’ve had a whole host of amazing, overlooked London DJs amongst these more well-known names.
Expect the best underground DJs from talented upcoming producers to legendary selectors, encompassing all manner of genres.
Half the space is covered by a roof with drop down heating, making the venue suitable all year round.
We’ve also installed a custom built, high fidelity sound system from East London Audio.
The Lot has plenty of seating across the venue, including private booths and gazebos, as well as a dance floor.
Both spaces have their own unique atmosphere and DJs. If you prefer intimacy and the music a little quieter, head to HWK Bar and Courtyard, where you can enjoy a fantastic selection of wines, cocktails and small bites,
alongside some seriously excellent music, selected by a varied roster of acclaimed record collectors and DJs.
And if you want al fresco vibes and a party atmosphere with DJs, head to The Lot!
