We licked the atmosphere and this is a good venue for a drink or two and to hear some fun music, would probably not eat there but good for a pit stop.

Went to this bar yesterday 1.5 hour before it closes and we were told cocktails are not served at that point of the night. 5 minutes later the bartender is making a cocktail for a female customer. Not going back to this bar.More

First time visiting as a venue, friendly & even though seemingly sold out, still room to move. Good sound, drinks at the expected London (over) prices - has a slightly gentrified feel of a live venue, but overall - not bad.

Hi there, thanks for your review. I'm afraid we don't have a meat platter on the menu, nor would we ever use whipped cheese. Our food comes courtesy of Orange Buffalo, and a full meal won't set you back more than £10-£15! Sorry to hear...More

This place was a complete let down. We went because we saw an advert for their R&B, Hip Hop etc night and it was horrendous. The room at the back looked like an area straight from the ghetto. There was a lot of questionable people...More

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
