Welcome to Café 1001, Brick Lane’s long established cultural hang out.

CAFE by day

A combined Café, workplace, cocktail bar, lounge and disco. We offer a cozy and inviting place not just to eat and drink but to work, relax, catch up and unwind in our split-level venue.

Café 1001 aims to inspire creativity and connection between the variety of cultures that venture down Brick Lane daily. We offer free WIFI, great coffee, excellent food and even better drinks especially if you’re lucky enough to grab a table on the terrace during the Summer.


We’ve partnered with British / Afghan, inclusive kitchen experts Cue Point who have curated a menu which highlights the best of Brick Lane while staying true to classic British Caff culture.


We rotate our coffee from locally sourced roasters. We have an amazing range of teas and alternative hot drinks. We work with local artisan bakeries to curate a line up of amazing cakes, pasrties and snacks.


Music is our thing. We spend hours, probably too long, curating our daily playlists and finding guest DJs to join us in our bespoke hand-built DJ booth built by Don Heston (the brains behind the MOKO/JUMBI booths).

The sound system has been engineered in partnership with local vintage sound-system expert Friendly Pressure.


Our mission is to deliver serious food, drinks and music without taking ourselves too seriously. At the end of the day, It’s just a f*cking Cafe… but probably not the one you were expecting to find. We recommend booking but walk ins are always welcome if we have space.


Our love for music allowed Radio 1001 to be born, an incubator for talent new and established and a platform for DJs to showcase their talents.

All our sets are recorded and can be listened back to via archive below or on our YouTube channel.
