By day the Electricity Showrooms acts as a gastro pub, with the fish finger sandwich being a notable item on the menu, claimed by fans to be the best in London. If you aren’t in the mood for cocktails, there’s a long list of beers and ciders from around the world for you to quench your thirst with. Come nightfall, the venue transforms into a lively DJ bar, complete with a neon-lit basement dancefloor, regular DJ sets from around the world and a stylish crowd that party well into the night.

So, I pass Electricity Showrooms a lot in the evening and normally see a thriving bar, with music, a queue and essentially a bar/club vibe. I have even had drinks there on occasion. I like it, its a nice down to earth clientelle, made up mostly of locals.
