I only stopped in here briefly as I was gagging for a pint after strolling along Brick Lane market and curry land. It was a sunny day so there was only one table left outside, a high table with high chairs that weren't the most comfortable. I was drawn to this place because they had lanterns strung up above the top of the outside seating area which made it look pretty and I'm a girl obvs.
This is a cool place to hang and get a drink. It looks like they have live music being performed here. The crowd that hangs here is young and hipster types are about. I thought the hipster thing was long over but.....more
I went there with friends on Saturday night (we were on Brick lane and we were thirsty). The place was quite busy when we arrived and a lot busier when we left.
The decor inside is quite interesting: one of the walls has a big scenery / painting on, the floor is just concrete. One of my friends thought that the bar was just opened and that they hadn't had time to finish work inside.
This place reminds me of a festival! The bar feels very open (and therefore quite cold when the sun is hiding) The beer is ok but I wouldnt say it blew my socks off! One for the east end students I think!more
I like this bar.
Yes, it's hipster, yes it's weird, yes you sit on uncomfortable plastic rubbish bin like bucket seats outside that are semi-uncomfortable, but so is the joy of this bar. There's a good selection of beers, the cocktails are strong and the staff don't seem to hate you like they do at other Shoreditch bars.
The space is funky with concrete ceilings and artwork down the walls....more
