About us

Covid-19 Update!!!  

Please note that we are not taking parties bigger than 6 due to limited space and for the safety of staff and other guests.

Due to incredibly high numbers of no-shows, we now require a deposit of £6 per person to secure your reservation. This deposit will be redeemed against your total bill on the night. If you need to cancel a reservation please email or text us directly to do so with 3 or more hours notice to refund your full deposit. We cannot refund deposits for cancellations received under 3 hours. Please note that you must contact us directly as we do not receive cancellations made by replying to emails from DesignMyNight.

The Natural Philosopher is a neighbourhood cocktail bar on Hackney Road in East London. We take inspiration from the natural world around us, using foraged ingredients to create cocktails themed around herbal medicine.

We strongly believe in community and so operate a 'Pay It Forward' scheme where guests can buy a drink for the next table to request their bill.

Happy Hour runs Tuesday-Thursday 6-8pm with £6 Selected Classics - Old Fashioned, Negroni, Daiquiri, Tom Collins, Espresso Martini and Aperol Spritz.
