Ripley and Lambert is a unique and fascinating independent specialist film bookshop and cafe in Dalston, East London.
With three distinctly designed spaces and room for up to 80 people throughout, this is an ideal venue for a launch or corporate event.
The main room, with its Twin Peaks-inspired zigzag flooring, an array of film-related books and a fully licensed counter serving a selection of high quality hot and cold drinks, sweet and savoury snacks, and wine and beers, is a wonderful welcome to any event.
With Art Deco wallpaper, a 1957 35mm film projector and a wall of information on cinema in London, the Projector Room sits at the back of the shop. And downstairs in the basement, the Blue Room has a cosy and inspiring atmosphere. The furniture throughout the three spaces can be arranged to suit the needs of your event.
Whatever your event, we believe Ripley and Lambert will inspire and delight you, your colleagues and your guests.
You can pre-order snacks and cakes and drinks or purchase on the day. The venue is licensed in the evenings so alcoholic drinks can also be made available.
