Okay so it's owned by Vice. Shane Smith is a really cool guy don't you just love the documentary on North Korea? You'd think that an establishment owned by such a company would be the best, but compared to the bars in the area it's lacking. I went with friends and in the middle of checking IDs, some staff member said the rest were not allowed in. In the end the whole group left, which cost the...more

Plus, since it's situated in Shoreditch, there's...more

It's taken me ages to work out how I ended up checking in at this place, and it just struck me - it's that random pub stuck in the middle of Shoreditch! Pubs and Shoreditch don't really go together. I mean, yes, there are a few around but a pub should be warm, cosy, and comfortable - words that are never used to describe the hipsters that inhabit this area of London town.

Still, the Old Blue...more
