To my mind, Wilton's is of the same ilk as somewhere like the Balham Bowls Club. One of those quirky, unusual places that oozes history and just has an indefinable sense of character.
Plus, the crowd are slightly older, which I appreciate now I'm no longer a 20-something.
Plenty of beers and a few cocktails upstairs. They do serve food, but don't bother - it's pretty awful.
Beautiful theatre within this old building, oldest one of its kind in London. Bar downstairs offers beer and wine and upstairs a nice range of spirits and cocktails. Recently refurbished the selection of events, from film screenings to gigs, makes Wilton's a must in East London and Cable Street.more

Beautiful old fashioned music hall, recently refurbished Im told.
Came here for a Swing Patrol dance night (which was great and has a lesson included in the ticket price before the dance starts...everybody swing!) but there seems to be an extensive monthly events list, which includes silent movies and cockney sing-a-longs to old music hall classics.
I highly recommend going here if you...more
My favorite place to grab a pint in London, and I often think about how old buildings like this would have toppled in a Californian earthquake a long while ago.
An old ale joint from the mid-1700s, it's now the world's oldest music hall. Summer is a great time to hang out here since the sunshine is still golden right after work, and it's honestly nice to pop a squat outside Wilton's to drink...more
