About Grow, Hackney
Carved out of an old sausage factory, Grow has been transformed into an independent canal side bar, kitchen and creative space. It was built, and is run by a small team. We operate as a ethical and sustainable business and rely on the creative sharing economy of Hackney Wick and the surrounding area. We partner with artists, musicians, DJ's and community groups to and hold as many free events as we can. We have a range of craft and organic drinks at the bar and the kitchen serve a seasonal menu freshly prepared in the canalside kitchen. More at www.GrowHackney.co.uk
