Description: After 6 years, The Big Chill Bar is part of the fabric of Brick Lane life. Sat in the heart of the Truman Brewery, it bustles with locals and visitors alike. It’s a place to have a drink and a delicious burger after shopping, or a place to drink and have a delicious burger after nothing, or to party with one of our resident DJs when the sun goes down. The Big Chill Bar remains consistently popular every day of the week, but don’t forget to come and see us on Sundays - market day on Brick Lane and chilled out party night in all the bars - when we have DJs all day until midnight, (and there’s always somewhere to go afterwards)…

I like to come here when having a night out with friends as the crowd is good and the music is great. It can be loud so if you were looking for a beer and a chat with some friends then might be worth looking elsewhere. But if you want a good time meeting some new people then you cant do wrong here.

I have not eaten here but what I have seen dished out looked fine so I am sure its good.

Have been in The Big Chill Bar for both breakfast and as a late night venue. Breakfast is fine nothing major to write about. At night its a late night venue with loud music strict door policy. If your looking for a quite beer go elsewhere.

I've been to Big Chill a few times now, and I have to say that whilst it's great at accommodating bigger groups, it's not so good an environment for a few drinks with only a few friends. The places are inflated (as you expect being on Brick Lane), and the security staff were quite unfriendly last time we attended. However, normally we do have quite a good night, and the atmosphere is great if the place is busy. I aim to try the food here in the future and see what the place is like during the day

Can't comment on food as didn't eat there. Only went for drinks.

It was ok, not sure what else to say.

Same as any other place in this area, wants to be ultra trendy, but us just really average.

Flat beer, slightly inflated prices, indifferent bar staff, nice security staff though.

Dj ok, not sure he (on this night) got what people wanted for music.

That's it, just a but blah. But not awful

I have always enjoyed nights out at the Big Chill Bar! The music is outstanding, the drinks are good and the outside area very welcomed for smokers or on a warm summer day!
