Owner description: A new destination for food, drinks and music in Hackney, London. Drawing on a Nordic aesthetic, Oslo is a significant new arrival in the dynamic and burgeoning area of Hackney Central, offering top quality food and drink with music in a unique space of a redeveloped railway station. Originally built by North London Railway Company, as a railway station in 1870, the two storey building was later used as a ticket office during World War II. It is the only surviving part of the original station which was closed in 1970's. Situated next door to Hackney Central on Amhurst Road, Oslo is a daytime hub to meet and eat, and a night time destination for socialising, eating and taking in the best of new music. The food menu places an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients and produce, including an impressive array of craft beers, ales and spirits from local suppliers. Food is served all day, from meetings through to late night get-togethers.

I visited Oslo Hackney in June 2018 to see Jay Som, a band from the Bay Area in California. The venue was absolutely lovely - the bar, outside area and the upstairs concert space feel really cool and fresh.

Oslo was just up the street from the hotel I stayed at while in London (Kip Hotel), and I'm so glad it was so close. During my stay, I went to Oslo on three different occasions to just spend some time in the afternoon doing work. The eggs Benedict was possibly the best I've ever had - the amazingly fresh Hollandaise made all the difference. My friend had the fish & chips which was also amazing - naturally. They have a great beer selection, and it was a great place to bring my laptop and chill out. The staff was super nice as well. I loved this place :)

Like the bar, good selection of food and beers, and an excellent music venue.
Anything further I say is influenced by the band I went to see, Screaming Females. Simply outstanding, they left me feeling like the awestruck 15 year old who first saw The Ramones all those years ago. The band are such nice people, sincerely hope you can get them back some day.

The staff polite and friendly.; even the doorman trying to form an orderly cue for those waiting to again access to the Lump concert was smiling. There was a veggi/ vegan choice of food which was very good. Only one real ale which tasted a bit odd so after the show we turned right out of the building and found a pub nearby.

Good location /food/atmosphere.
Luv the decorations in the restaurant. The window is quite dark so it’s hard to see from outside. It seems closed lol
