About Us

The Bay Collective is East London’s newest addition to the dining scene and the only permanent indoor Food Market.  With a variety of Global Cuisines, 2 x Bars, Live Entertainment, Kids Zone and an Arcade, this is a festive space that has something for everyone.


From PS5’s to Old School – a place where fun & the competitive spirit collide


Offering a diverse range of global cuisines & unique range of beers on tap


A purpose-built performance stage, big screen & multiple TV’s throughout


A place where FUN and the COMPETITIVE SPIRIT collide and you don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy all that’s on offer.

We offer online and multiplayer gaming through 5 x top of the range Racing Simulators and 5 x PS5 Console Lounges, sporting games from F1, Gran Turismo, World Rally Champs, MotoGP, FIFA, Street Fighter, Tekken, UFC, Tony Hawk, plus a couple VR Headsets available for the adventurous racers, wanting the ultimate racing realism, but be warned… this is not for the faint of heart!

Challenge your mates, join our weekly leagues or bring your colleagues for a competitive team building session.

For those who grew up in the 80’s, arguably the Golden Age of Gaming, we have a retro section with 5 x Custom Built Arcade Cabinets with all of your favourite hits from Space Invaders, Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Contra to the 90’s classics of Sunset Riders and Metal Slug. 


Food is life, food is love, food is the ultimate connector!

We have some seriously talented food creatives offering a diverse range of global cuisines in a “Street Food” format, so don’t expect huge plates of food, that’s not the vibe. With 5 x Permanent Food Stalls and 1 x rotating Pop-Up Stall, theres guaranteed to be something for everyone, so take your time, experience them all and enjoy some quality time with friends.

Take note:  The Bay Collective is a Self-Service establishment.

We are a licensed venue with both an indoor and outdoor bar, featuring a unique range of Beers on Tap and Refreshing Cocktails.

Oh, and if you’re a fan of Premium Tequila, the mastermind behind this project created one of the longest running Mexican Restaurants in the country, so….. mi casa es su casa.
