Square Meal Review of Oslo ?

The name provides the geographical compass point for this new all-day venue on Amhurst Road, which brings a ‘dark Nordic aesthetic’ to the streets of Hackney. Occupying the redeveloped shell of a Victorian railway station-cum-ticket office next door to Hackney Central, Oslo is a two-pronged eatery and social hub offering casual food and drink during the day, before putting on its glad rags for smart evening meals, classy booze and the best in new music at night. The menu is based on produce from local suppliers, and the drinks list peppered with craft beers, ales, cocktails and wines.

    Drifting Epicure :: Oslo Hackney

    Set up a restaurant/bar decorated in wood and bricks with a rugged edge next to Hackney Central station. Hire staff that know more about the latest trends than the food served. Name the place after a Nordic city people might have heard of but do not know much about. That’s the combination of ingredients in the recipe behind Oslo Hackney’s success, at least if you judge the number of likes their Facebook page has attracted within 2 months. This is a place where your entrance will turn heads to see if you are cool enough to blend into the forward crowd, because sticking out here is the last thing you want. Next thing that grabs the attention is Oslo’s decor...

    The List :: Oslo Hackney - Hand of Glory - The Shrubbery

    Flatmate Ali and I started off the evening at Oslo - a two storey bar, restaurant & music venue housed in the only remaining part of the original Hackney Central station which was closed in the 1970s. The ground floor bar & restaurant is stunning, particularly on the lighting front as you can see below. We settled onto a table in the corner for dinner & people watching, with a great view of the lovely long bar (which is also home to a Pioneer DJ mixer - don't spill your drinks!). They have an excellent range of wines & beers, including local offerings from Crate, Redemption and Five Points...

    Gingle lists everything :: Oslo, 17th January

    People love a freebie and the Oslo launch last Friday was no exception. Twenty minutes deep into a queue, with what looked like at least as long to go before me, and I started to wonder if this was really worth it. How good could it be in there? Answer: SO good! Maybe not wait-40-minutes-in-the-cold-good but once I was in I was happy I'd made the effort and I doubt the massive queue will be a regular occurrence. Knowing how many people must have been ahead of us to necessitate waiting so long, we knew it would be busy inside. And, in the downstairs bar area, there was quite a crush. Miraculously, this did not translate to a massive wait at the bar and we got served really speedily. Perhaps that is a sign of talented and efficient bar staff...
