Swan Wharf location Hackney Wick

Swan wharf is a unique, turn of the century, Victorian warehouse complex with some modernisation covering just under 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. Nestled on the old ford on the river lea in the creative hub of Hackney Wick, the venue overlooks the breath-taking view of the Olympic Park. The building is currently being rented by a brand-new business called EXP Leisure with the aim to providing excellent customer experiences for people of all ages who enjoy both play and speculative fiction. We will offer customers the opportunity to engage in a wide range of play, pass-time and hobby activities perfectly matched to their key interests, in a family-friendly and inclusive environment purposely designed to support and stimulate their enjoyment, fun and development.  

The building is separated into six different rent-able spaces. On the ground floor, we have the Cantina which is a fully working bar and kitchen open 7 days a week to the public. The bar also offers a large outdoor terrace area which can be rented separately for events and party's, it is in a lovely elevated position overlooking a particularly picturesque section of the river Lea. The Cantina and outdoor yard and terrace area is available as a whole for large private events but due to its size would only be suitable for party's of 250+ The Cantina can also take bookings for reserved areas of any size between 10-60ppl please ring the bar on 020 3733 8683. The last four rooms are all boasting exposed brickwork and with tall ceilings, each with plenty of space having previously been used for theater productions and other large events. The first floor has one rentable space called the Green Room this is this room is mostly for private events and is more secluded, with a little office space at the back of the room should you want or need it for you events. We have fob system downstairs to so only certain people will have access for added privacy. The Second floor consists of three different rooms, the waterside room is currently being used as our social gaming hub and can be rented out for that purpose or depending on your event purposed can be tailored to make your event work. Ideally we would like to leave the set up as it is but we are very flexible with what we can offer.

The next two rooms are both stable rooms and are the two biggest rentable rooms, one is known as the LAN Zone which will hold 50 PC’s for gaming and in house tournaments. The computers can be rented with the space. The Next room is our Console Lounge, with between 20 – 30 consoles which can also be rented out, or depending on the room need the console can be moved into our storage rooms, these are easy enough to move however in our LAN Zone the computers are more difficult to move, not impossible but much more difficult. The space can all be rented out or can be rented per room and Swan Wharf is in a short walking distance from both Stratford and Hackney Wick Stations, which offer national rail services, the London over ground connecting east and west London, as well as the Jubilee and Central underground Lines.
