The Laundry

2 - 18 Warburton Road , London, E8 3FN

SquareMeal Review of The Laundry

Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has converted this post-war laundry into a creative hub, with first-floor units rented out to musicians and designers. In addition to an events/club space that hosts cool all-nighters, the site now incorporates a pared-down post-industrial canteen and bar. Here you can sip easy-drinking wines such as Languedoc red (from £4.50 a glass) or Picpoul (£26). Cocktails, from £9, include Penicillin, Grasshopper and Martinez, as well as Belle (Caorunn gin, St Germain elderflower liqueur and muddled red grapes) and The Kick – a chilli-charged vodka Julep. Food ranges from posh bacon butties or buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup for breakfast (served from 10am), via lunches of Lebanese and Med-inspired salads, soups, wraps and pastas, to Eurasian-influenced dinners such as lamb ragu with couscous, or three-seaweed broth, crispy yaki-nori, carrot and rice noodles. Eat inside or in The Laundry’s former drying yard: now a hangout for white-as-a-sheet Hackney hipsters.
