“STAY AWAY”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Stay away from this place -

Ridiculously expensive drinks. Bouncers who are pedantic and rude.

Even when quiet they wont allow you sit outside on certain chairs. As some are for eating and some are for drinking. Even though they are identical?

Staff and Bouncers are rude, power happy and not cool.

This place used to be ok. It's now turned into a tourist trap you'd find in Leicster Sqaure.

“Stay away!!!!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was appalled by the conduct and attitude of the staff, in particular one member of door staff who verbally assaulted my friend and her family and showed clear discrimination to them. He also used inappropriate language and made us feel threatened - which appeared to be intentional. The other staff members declined to either support their colleague (clearly seeming embarrassed by his behaviour - as they should be) but failed to stand up to his bullying either. The bar staff were unable to get a response from the manager who seemed to be hiding in an office and ignoring requests to come and manage his staff team.
I was embarrassed that I had invited friends to this venue to be treated so badly.

“Best bar in Brick Lane”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

Had after meeting drinks here. It's simple, beautiful and there's a great buzz. Great selection of drinks, doesn't try to be too fancy despite the location. If I hadn't been with a bunch of lightweights I would have stayed all night! Perfect location, cool setting (it's huge when you get out of the bar) and very funky. Very highly recommended.

“Fun and exciting place”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Fancy a fun evening/night out? Vibe is a good choice for you then! Drinks are cheap - by London Standards and the people are of a non-annoying kond of "special". Downside: Since it is a bar it colses pretfy early... and it's quite a walk back to Liverpool station.
