An enticing, all-day hangout, Heist Bank offers an irresistible range of beers, ales, ciders, G&Ts and classic cocktails, plus more whites, reds and rosés than you can shake a big stick at. And flowers. Yep, that’s right, there’s an in-house florist here as well.
If you’re looking for food, Heist Bank serves up a selection of sourdough pizzas, all prepared in an authentic, Italian wood-burning oven. If you’re looking for fun, there’s a specially commissioned, custom-built pool table and even a French, Art Deco ‘foosball’ table, too.
Conveniently located close to the Grand Union canal, Heist Bank has a cool, communal feel, with long-bench seating, comfy sofas and a dramatic, double-height installation created by graffiti artist Pure Evil.
When the weather is fine, you can sit on the terrace or borrow a Bobbin bike to peddle alongside the neighbouring waterway.
Open till late, there’s a private party room in the basement, complete with vintage Nintendos, karaoke and serve-yourself beer kegs. It comfortably accommodates around 45 guests.
The brains behind Heist Bank are the Urban Leisure Group, the same people responsible for The Elgin in Maida Vale, along with a select group of other splendid bars and restaurants across the capital.
