Barbican, Old Street, EC1V

The Space

FARE is located in the Moorelands building, an old turn of the century textile factory, in the heart of Clerkenwell. It is situated on the junction between Old Street and Goswell Road, just a 5 min walk away from the Barbican and 10 min walk away from the Old Street roundabout. FARE is split across two floors, with both levels having a unique character and design.

The upstairs level has high ceilings and benefits from large crittal windows on either side that flood the space with natural light. The industrial aesthetic gives the space a modern, relaxed, vibe. The upstairs restaurant hosts an Italian restaurant and cafe, that focuses on pizzas, pasta, all day coffee and aperitivo cocktails.

Upstairs also benefits from a large courtyard area that is very busy during the summer months and can also be used for events. Other features included are a large marble topped horseshoe bar and pizza oven.

We can accommodate a total of 75 standing and 42 seated not including use of the courtyard.

The industrial aesthetic continues into the large, downstairs events space. The white washed walls are adorned hanging plants and the pavements allow for a good amount of natural light. The space also benefits from it’s own bar area and wine cellar, ideal for parties. The space is intended for multi-functional use; anything from board meeting, brand activation to weddings. The space has an open window into the large kitchen, making it ideal for private dining.

The space also contains a large and well lit Wine Cellar along with a fully functional cocktail bar at the further end of the space, which is ideal for arrival and/or after dinner drinks. We can hire in AV equipment and all furniture is fully moveable.

We can accommodate 85 people standing and 80 people seated including use of the Cocktail bar area. 

With all types of catering available from coffee and tea service with pastries to canapé and bowl food and 4 course set menus, FARE is the ideal venue for every event. We have already worked with a number of companies including Instagram, KeepCup and Pernod Ricard. So get in touch and see what we can do for you.
