About this space

Kontiki Studios North is a wonderfully quirky warehouse conversion tucked away in a quiet alley behind Kingsland Road, Hackney, East London.

Dramatic, decadent and opulent, the style perfectly fuses the aesthetic qualities of a gentleman’s smoking club with a museum of curiosities and the waiting area of Toulouse Lautrec’s favourite bordello.

A retro holiday kitsch themed stage, a Gothic pulpit DJ booth, an assortment of taxidermy and antique furnishings further add to the splendidly eccentric ambience and ensure that whatever event or shoot you hold, it’s certain to leave a lasting impression.

Despite the luxurious atmosphere this unique venue in London has a very warm and homely feel making it the perfect creative space for entertaining guests, product launches, press events, exclusive soirees, private dinner parties, themed pop-ups, as a corporate and conference venue and of course for photo-shoots and filming.

On warmer evenings you can take advantage of our rooftop terrace with views across Haggerston Park and the trendy environs of Dalston.

If you’re short of a DJ we have access to our own varied roster and can supply you the perfect soundtrack to your event in a fantastically wide array of genres. We have some superbly eclectic names from the world of pop including the likes of Bishi (Kashpoint) and Richard Torry (Minty).
