When my girl and me visited the nightjar, Caroline and Fred were playing a great set of jazz music. In a cozy cellar you get tasty cocktails in a fancy manner listening to some chilling jazz. Will go again!

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
