I went here on Friday night for a first date and was quite pleasantly surprised. Being a Friday night, it was of course rammed - come on, this is Shoreditch and this is London after all - but we had a reservation.

I'm a bit out of touch with Shoreditch now that I no longer live or work in the area. I didn't realise Bar Music Hall was gone and that The Blues Kitchen had taken it's place.
