Why is this important?

London's beloved independent pubs face a perfect storm. A combination of Londoners spending less on nights out and rising operational costs threatens their very existence. The staffing shortage, already a challenge after the pandemic, is worsening as high living expenses push hospitality workers out of the city. This forces pub owners, often landlords themselves, to wear multiple hats just to keep their doors open. While large chains have the resources to weather this economic tempest, independent pubs are in danger of closing. Our solution? A gift option that empowers Londoners to support these local treasures, enticing them to rediscover the heart and soul these pubs bring to the city, all while ensuring these independent businesses survive.

About CityStack

CityStack was initiated in 2021 by Alison, a pub aficionado, and a group of ten great independent London pubs. Together, they launched a two-weeks crowdfunding campaign for Christmas, where the target was smashed in a very short period of time. 

Since then, CityStack started to generate sales both online, and in retail independent shops, and more pubs have shown interest in joining the movement.

In 2023, the CityStack team asked their community to recommend the best independent pubs in London and visited hundreds of independent pubs across the city to handpick some of the best hidden gems.


The goal? Allow more independent pubs to highlight why people should visit them and bring people back to the pubs!
