Booked for Super Bowl. No draught beer after 12. They ran out of food and worst of all there was no sound from the game. We left very early and watched the rest of the game at home. There are basic things a bar should get right but this one doesn't deliver. Avoid.

Much better selection of bars in the area. But it's open remarkably late 5,30am+ which is its main selling point in my eyes as most places close by 2 nearby

No glamour, little atmosphere. The owner tried for edgy artistic and ended up with dirty and dull. Plenty of great independents in the area which actually do something original. Nice outdoor area but on a main road so never going to be that attractive. Nothing to see here.

Neighborhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighborhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbor can result in fascinating outcomes.
