A new alfresco drinking and dining spot has opened in Hackney Wick as part of the launch of a new east London destination called Hackney Bridge.

The canal-side hangout, called The Courtyard, will be joined by a new Sunday market and indoor dining hall later in the year.

Alistair Maddox, general manager of Hackney Bridge, said: "We're so excited to have finally launched The Courtyard at Hackney Bridge.

The canalside spot can be found in Hackney Wick in Olympic Park.

"After months of lockdown, it's great to be able to provide a safe space for people to come and eat, drink and have fun together."

The growing cultural hub has become home to street food traders, restaurants, bars, and workspace.
