Looking at what’s round the corner for Hagglers in its tenth year
Believe it or not, Hagglers Corner turns ten this year. Before you know it, it’ll be a surly teen at big school, staying out beyond curfew!
While it’s still in the throes of youth, the lovely folk down at Hagglers have given the Queens Road venue a proper spruce up with a freshly refurbished courtyard, serving Indian-inspired tapas from The Bhaji Shop hatch until 9pm.
The brand new mezzanine structure and sheltered areas brings the venue’s capacity up to 200 seats, which transforms from a cosy café by day to a beautifully lit bar by night.
Sarah Ingolfsdottir, who owns Hagglers with her husband Dave Knott, said: “After ten years of love, music and community, we’ve totally transformed our courtyard and hand-built a sprawling mezzanine that lets you relax between the treetops.
“Our in-house community of businesses are thriving and allow you to come and get your haircut whilst waiting for your guitar to be repaired! Or take a workshop in macrame, crochet, sewing, or willow weaving, then head upstairs for a tattoo or a piano lesson.”
“We feel like we are finally evolving into the hub we have always aimed to be, a supporting place for both independent businesses and the public to be themselves, have fun and grow.”
To help Hagglers Corner celebrate, pay them a visit at 586 Queens Road, S2 4DU, where they’ve even got a few special edition Hagglers t-shirts on offer!
