The Book Club

Old Street’s Book Club is a zany bar which keeps the fun going through an eclectic menu, ping pong tables and a variety of music nights. Read More


This bar represents a quintessential piece of an Old Street night out. There are inventive events such as the Wednesday hip hop quiz party, DJ nights featuring influential selectors and “thinking and drinking” sessions which combine expert Q&A sessions with beer and cocktails. Not just an evening venue, the Book Club serves breakfast from eight in the morning, and becomes an informal workspace for the laptop freelancers of East London during the day.
