Best bar in Dalston, East London, Hackney



We decided to take a little leap into the unknown in October 2017 and trial becoming a cashless bar.

The trial went really well.

We accept card payments, but no coins or notes.

The transparency of a cash-free business had always been appealing, and when our bank increased fees for depositing cash, we thought that rather than pass that cost on we'd make the decision to keep our drink prices low and look for other solutions. 

Most of our sales were already made by card so it felt like a good time to try going cashless.
