Shoreditch has just seen the arrival of BL-NK, a three storey, 4,500 square foot event space on Curtain Road and as we head into the party season, we think you need to know about it. The venue’s aim is to support local businesses, from providing spaces to work or hold meetings to hosting product launches, press days, parties, live music and plays – they’ve got pretty much everything covered. There are a number of different sized spaces for your events including a gallery and roof terrace and through their partners they can get their hands on a limitless supply of equipment – so you don’t have to go sourcing it and dragging it across London. Nice work.
It doesn’t just stop at equipment though, oh no, they can curate your whole event, you want event graphics? Sorted. Flowers? Done. Props? Check. Need character actors to play zombies at your Halloween event? Yes even that. Of course there’ll be catering too and talking of food there is a café and bar on site. In the café you’ll find Hackney’s own Climpson and Sons coffee beans alongside Dalston Cola, Square Root and Crude Juice. Food comes from three friends who worked together at CRATE Brewery in Hackney Wick, it draws influence from modern British, Mediterranean and Levantine cuisine and will feature charcuterie and cured meats from Black Hand in Hackney Wick and bread from E5 Bakehouse. The bar which is open daily will be serving up craft beers including beers from CRATE Brewery.
So next time you’re looking to host an event in East London, you need to get to BL-NK.
