From the screensters behind The Gate & The Ritzy, this trinity-completing spot outshines the others with four screens' worth of steeply inclined, luxuriantly reclining, armchair-esque seats, plus a cafe, art gallery, and three bars including the live-music venue The Hackney Attic, about which they say "we have big plans and very good contacts and we're not afraid to use them", making one wonder if they haven't hired Roman Abramovich as a booking agent.
