Stopped in for a beer, nice selection but kitchen wss not open. Early in the evening so it was very dead, I'm staying close but I'm not sure if I will go back, I did enjoy the music selection.

Not had a great experience here, drinks were ok to start and then tried to order food, they didnt put it through properly, got the order wrong, the guy cooking was rude, no good service and no smiles, food was awful, will not be back.

Came here for a birthday gathering and just had drinks (no food). Venue itself is okay. Wide array of drinks, but pretty expensive IMO. We a few tables reserved for the group but a short time into the night a staff member told me to move from a table as they were removing it for the night. At this moment... More

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.

Staying in Shoreditch

Neighborhood Profile
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.
