Oval Space Terrace Review

Top 10 things you need to know about Behind This Wall at The Oval Space.

1) Own a fixie bike, a bomber jacket and some rolled-up jeans? Like to wear bright lipstick, a messy topknot or a beard? Then, my friend, it’s time for you to head to Bethnal Green’s latest rooftop.

2) Hipsters, hipsters and hipsters. That’s the oh-so-cool vibe of this rooftop bar terrace residency by Behind This Wall. Having said that, this critic is as far from East London in her look as it gets, and she was welcomed with open arms.

3) Based in a back street of Bethnal Green, Behind This Wall is channelling the New Orleans’ cocktail scene, with thoroughly well thought out twists on classic cocktails using only top ‘knot’ch ingredients - no Gordon’s or Beefeater here.

4) Expect a little wait as the achingly cool bartender makes your drink, but it’s well worth sticking around and watching the love and care they put into it. Order an Old Fashioned made with dark rum and chocolate bitters for a Christmas-in-summer feel (well, if it’s different, it works, right?!).

5) Sit back, enjoy the chilled beats and get ready to make friends. It’s a small space so you’ll end up chatting to all sorts of interesting folk. They don’t bite. Mostly.

6) The concept, open at this location until late September 2015, is the brainchild of Alex Harris, who combines his background as a bartender in some of London’s top haunts, his love of New Orleans, and his passion for music into a melting pot fit for any Hackney hotspot.

7) Not content with making great drinks, Alex is on a mission to make oysters the next street food trend. Between 6pm and 7pm every night take advantage of oysters for £1. There’s even a cocktail, the Sazerac, that comes, if you dare, with an oyster in it.

8) If you’re feeling a bit more conservative, opt for a delicious burger, handmade by Alex himself on a little bbq in the corner.

9) Every night is different, with London’s up-and-coming DJs taking turns on the venue’s ace sound-system, film nights, sub-120 beats nights and all sorts of ad hoc special events - Mezcal tasting anyone?

10) Check the schedule and the weather forecast before you go - opening times can be unpredictable and if it rains, there’s not much cover!
