About this space

Kontiki Studios North is a wonderfully quirky warehouse conversion tucked away in a quiet alley behind Kingsland Road, Hackney, East London.  It is also our home – we live here too – but this is also what contributes to its utterly unique atmosphere.

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 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.  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).

We can provide catering packages too, as we have established relationships with some very high end bar and food providers.

Kontiki is musician friendly and can provide a full PA* and backline**
(Noise restrictions apply after 11pm for live music).

Kontiki is also frequently booked for editorials, filming and commercial shoots; our clients include Vogue, Vogue Japan, Vogue Uomo, Topshop, Office, Urban Outfitters, Saatchi and Saatchi, MTV, Sunday Times, Wonderland and Daphne Guiness.

We look forward to welcoming you to World of Kontiki!

From the moment we saw Kontiki Studios we lit up. A truly unique, exciting and beautiful space that was perfect for our wedding party.

Anita was a huge help in supporting us with our preparations – always available to answer questions, host recces, make suggestions and fine-tune logistics. We felt completely at ease.

…then came the big night. Kontiki looked magical!
It was intimate, opulent, original and straight up cool. We had the most incredible, fun-filled night that will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
