The Star Of Hackney DownsOpening this month following a refurbishment that celebrates the building’s original features as well as incorporating new design and creative direction, The Star by Hackney Downs is the latest addition to the Hackney Downs area. The redesign, led by Lady Ray, pools together the talents of some of the area’s most creative minds, to conceive something bespoke, individual and with plenty of soul.

Anyone can contribute to the design of The Star by Hackney Downs – which is keen to reflect the heritage of its locals, and welcomes donations of any weird and wonderful possessions to become a feature of the pub’s interior. There will be a box in the pub for people to leave their curiosities; with those selected filling the empty frames of the pub walls.

With quirky additions such as, a psychic and illusionist on hand for hire, expect magic tricks, palm-reading and mystical predictions to add that extra flair to your evening. Speciality spirits, plus a wide range of beers and ales from locally sourced brewery’s make up the drinks menu, while Mario’s pizza’s and Big Apple hotdogs are your grub.
