Situated on Regent’s Canal near Haggerston Overground Station, The Proud Archivist is a combined gallery, bar, restaurant, cafe and events space, serving fabulous food and drink in a beautiful setting. Open 7 days a week, we want to feed you, drink you (hang on, that doesn't sound right…), entertain you and educate you with our food, drink, exhibitions and events. From comedy to history, politics to sport, we’re pretty much interested in everything and will be programming events which reflect that. We think we’re a lovely venue, and we hope you do too. Come and check us out for breakfast, lunch or dinner – or for a drink, or a show, or to take a look at some pictures, or even just to look at the swans. We can’t wait to see you.
