Oval Space describes itself as 'an evolving multi-use arts and events organisation' spread over 5,000 square foot of industrial warehouse space.
It hosts myriad club nights, live music gigs, festivals and after parties. Plus there's a summertime roof top terrace with iconic views of the gas holders alongside Regent's Canal, which look surprisingly beautiful at sunset.
Oval Space is used for all kinds of events from corporate functions, product launches, fashion shows, through to small and large-scale stills, TV and film shoots.
Technically it's not in Hackney, situated just over the border in Bethnal Green, but what the heck, we love it anyway.
