This might be my new favourite Friday hangout. Also because I just started working not far from The Social.

I love the dive bar on the ground floor. The wooden interior gives me the feeling of a fifties dinner, only a lot more intimate. The music is indeed loud and it might be sometimes a bit too hard to have a proper conversation, but where in London is this not the case?. Since they play a...more

My friend loves this place and I can see why. It's a very cool joint. The narrow ground floor is entirely constructed with all wooden walls; funky art hangs above steel tables and pillowed chairs. The small basement is more of a dance floor that's dark and gets very sweaty. They have a cool food/drinks menu with DJs playing on both floors.

Went late last Thursday. Gruff door staff, empty upstairs bar which was small and narrow.

Not interested in going again.more
