This West Coast American-Themed Bar And Pizzeria Is Now Open In Bethnal Green

This pastel-coloured, plant-covered paradise is the perfect spot for a pizza and a pint.

This new bar and kitchen takes its inspiration from West Coast American motels in the 50s and 60s. It’s all decked out in mid-century pastel colours and adorned with an abundance of plants and greenery. There’s even a summer terrace — perfect for enjoying an Aperol Spritz in the sunshine!

Just a three minute walk from Bethnal Green station, overlooking Bethnal Green Gardens, Fugitive Motel has a vacancy for everyone. There’s great coffee from Climpson & Sons during the day, speciality sourdough pizzas from noon, excellent craft beers by night, and even a shuffleboard if you’re after a bit of friendly competition.

The concept was created by close pals David and Liam, both former musicians in indie bands The Brights and The Light Assembly, respectively. The drinks menu will showcase 14 craft beers on draft, all from local breweries or specially selected from David and Liam’s travels over the years. There’ll also be a bunch of low and no ABV beers, as well as a bunch of refined and natural wines and, of course, a wicked cocktail list.

Fugitive Motel opens on Friday June 7 and anyone who visits between 5pm-9pm on launch day gets their first drink for free!
