The Old Baths
were built in 1934. The formerly known as Gainsborough Road Public Baths provided the local residents with slipper baths, 24 for men and 24 for women and a mechanical laundry quite revolutionary for its time.
The building was fully restored to it's current state back in 1994 and it is one of Hackney's listed buildings.
Currently its premises are used as photography studios mainly for the fashion industry, there is a dark room, a Cafe, an open Gallery space and afternoon classes available for the local Community.

Is a friendly hang out for locals as well as models, fashion designers and photographers who come into the building to use the studios. The food is inspired by authentic Greek cooking with plenty of healthy and organic options in affordable prices. Homemade jams and Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil are some of the artisanal products available at the deli.
