Ombra is a Venetian style bar/restaurant in Hackney. It is the alternative meeting room at fourth—space. Directors Paolo and Steve along with chef Andrea conceived the idea, set up and opened Ombra in 2011. Since then it has established itself as a highly popular local establishment that specialises in fresh homemade simple Italian food and drinks. At the head of Vyner Street it is often a buzz of local designers, artists and architects which form part of an eclectic mix of regulars. In 2013 Ombra was awarded the Premio Stelle della Fenice bel Mondo - a special cultural award from the highly esteemed La Fenice Theatre Foundation for initiative and success in promoting Venetian cultural excellence.
