Like the Great Plains being roamed by herds of majestic bison, the warehouses of Hackney Wick form the perfect natural habitat for hipsters to thrive in great numbers. You’ll find plenty of them at Crate Brewery, where in addition to excellent house-brewed beers and ciders on tap, they dish out brilliant thin-crust pizzas. At weekends, there are DJs spinning and a party vibe, and there’s masses of outdoor space for your crew to sit by the canal. There’s even a little rowboat you can sit in - just try not to tip it over, unless you want to contract leptospirosis.
