The Whitechapel Refectory and After Hours


Café by day, wine bar by night, The Whitechapel Refectory and After Hours are brought to you by Luke Wilson and Cameron Emirali, the duo behind 8 Hoxton Square and 10 Greek Street.

A seasonal daytime menu features a delicious selection of salads, sandwiches and cakes, as well as hot dishes. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings the space transforms into After Hours, an informal wine bar serving an assortment of charcuterie and cheese alongside an evolving wine and craft beer list.
