The Natural Philosopher has been East London's hidden gem since 2015. Set inside a working Apple Mac repair shop, the space is an overgrown jungle of antiques, art and plants.

Open 7 days a week, the venue is the perfect setting for a wide variety of gatherings and celebrations. Please note WE DO NOT have a kitchen and therefore are unable to offer food. Private hires are permitted to bring their own food or we can suggest a catering company for canapés.

Also note that we are unable to accommodate DJ's with our license, but if hiring the full venue guests can play their own music via a Spotify or Deezer playlist. Also being on a main road we do not have any outside space.

    The cocktails are amazing and the staff is very knowledgeable about the drinks! Service was great and cocktails had a perfect amount of alcohol. It’s a very rare find ✨ Also I love that the foam on some cocktails were explicitly written that it’s vegan foam!

    Amazing cocktails, reasonable price for London cocktails but definitely worth making the most of the happy hour. Such a discreet, quirky setting. Perfect for a date night or a group setting!

    Very cute cocktail bar with some amazing drinks. Potentially the best cocktail in Bethnal Green. Staff are friendly and the vibe is great. The only thing is they used to have the terrain menu which was inspired by foraging in different terrains in the UK which was the most inspired and incredible cocktail menu ever - the new menu is slightly shorter and I miss the old one! Still fantastically made drinks in a gorgeous spot all the same!
