Food, Drink & a little Art
Much more than a cafe - a whole cultural experience
Location: 49 Columbia Road, E2 7RG
Description: 'The FleaPit' is a cafe-bar on Columbia Road right next to the park. A place where art and socialising go hand in hand...
Home to this foodie place is the ground floor of a small Victorian warehouse - split over two spaces, The Lounge and The Pit (Freedom Gallery).
You can relax in the Lounge on our comfortable sofas and chairs from yesteryear whilst enjoying a drink and some food, before catching a creative event in The Pit.
The FleaPit has also set up an 'Arts Trust', which will be responsible for delivering a range of arts projects.
These projects will be facilitated by local artists who live or work in the area.
In the past The FleaPit has delivered projects involving Bethnal Green Technology College and Columbia Primary School... what a cafe!
