Joining Well Street’s burgeoning small businesses from The Gun, Well Street Kitchen, Mother Kelly’s Bottle Shop and The Dane and Josh and bringing the on-the-rise area a welcome injection of cocktail culture, Machine No. 3 provides an intimate, quirky space with an ethos of providing exceptionally good quality cocktails and locally sourced food at reasonable prices in a relaxed environment.
Retaining the roots of its original setting, an old laundry, the original washing machine covers now adorn the bathrooms and are the inspiration behind the bar’s name. Founders Lauren Johns, Antony Johns and Briac Le Camus have brought Robin Summers on board to manage the new destination. With 6 years of experience in the industry as well as boasting an extensive knowledge of European and American craft beer cultures, contemporary and classic cocktails and a keen interest in natural and bio-dynamic wines, he’s the perfect fit for Machine No. 3, not to mention creating his very own extensive seasonal cocktail menu. Visitors will be able to sample the delights of expertly chosen cocktails such as the ‘Smoky Tommy’, the classic ‘Mr Collins’, or the mysterious ‘Black Feather’ all in the comfort of Machine No.3’s intimate and interesting surroundings.
Lauren Johns, co founder of Machine No.3 comments, “We are so excited to be unveiling our brand new venture, Machine No.3 to Hackney’s blossoming Well Street. The area is already home to a number of brilliant pubs and restaurants and we truly believe our new bar will be a great addition to the landscape. Our ethos is to maintain a relaxed and fun environment yet take our drinks seriously and we cannot wait to welcome visitors through our doors to see for themselves”.
Opening times will be 5pm – 12pm with table service from Monday to Thursday, Friday and Saturday will see the bar close at 1am with DJ’s soundtracking the party vibes of the nights, and 5pm-11pm on Sunday for the perfect hangover cure.
