Within a warren of studios on the second floor at Netil House, Platform is East London’s slightly secret cafe-bar. Just off Broadway Market and opposite London Fields, we are hiding in plain view, with huge windows and a terrace overlooking the railway tracks that provide an iconic panorama.
Here, people can work, have meetings and dine from a Persian inspired menu, whilst in the evenings the focus shifts to arts- and literature-based events including: exhibitions, book launches, film screenings, comedy nights, themed-supper clubs, music showcases and more, creating a dynamic hub for the creative communities both inside and outside the building.
