The Light Bar is an iconic building, re-born. Independently owned by a new team Morten Jensen & Darren Collins, long-standing Hackney residents, the team have lovingly restored this landmark building. Proud to be able to create another chapter in its legacy.

Set over three floors, our mission is to create a place for everyone to enjoy - where the space is fun, the food is generous and the drinks flow. Good vibes only. 

Our food centres on simplicity, quality and flavour. The focus on sustainability - working with small, local farms to provide farm to table, seasonal dishes across all three floors. Our aim is to make as much as possible in-house using the best ingredients  Our Drinks

Working with a small list of suppliers and a team joining from London’s best cocktail bars, we have created a focused drinks lists - with an emphasis on taste. Using wines with low intervention from small producers and strong cocktails that aim to make the alcohol shine. Our bar & kitchen teams work together to use (and re-use) produce from our allotment - creating our own tinctures and cordials to make for unforgettable drinks.

Formerly known as the Great Eastern Electric Light Generating Station - this is the only remaining power station of its type in the UK. Built in 1893 by the Great Eastern Railway (GER) it was the site of Colonel REB Crompton’s world famous electrical engines. 

The building, initially known as the Norton Folgate Power Station, played a pioneering role in the development of electric power, and from 1900 the borough of Shoreditch used it as inspiration for its motto ‘More Light, More Power’. 

This Victorian Power station also played an important role in the evolution of the GER. Generating the first electric light to Liverpool Street Station as well as adjoining  Great Eastern Hotel and later Bishopsgate Goodsyard until 1932. Its chimney was demolished in 1934 and the generating equipment removed. To check out this gem go to
