So this is not my kind of scene for a regular night out. Why you ask? Well, mostly because the entrance is made from wooden boards. Oh and it's in a basement where things naturally are dark and dingy. And if it weren't filled with music and madness it would look like something out of a horror/gangster movie.

However, every time I go here (and it's not my first rodeo) I have a great time.... more

SO many good memories here. Fun bar/club, no pretense, no cover charge, cheap drinks, multiple dance floors, good DJ. Yes, the bathroom is no bueno. Yes, the venue lowkey looks like a murder scene. This is what I told Hackney/Dalston/WhateverTheyreCallingItNow was supposed to look like. So kudos to them for achieving that. more

The Alibi is our go-to place, always. I started going there about three years ago and just keep coming back. Sure, some of their nights are questionable but overall it's a great place. Drinks are not amazing but it's not really a place you would go to for fancy cocktails anyway. Would recommend Thursday and Friday nights! more

Places like this piss me off so much. You are not a dive bar if you charge for drinks as much as in Alibi.

I know this it is tough to resist not putting the prices up in areas that are becoming trendy but cmon man, if I am paying you so much for drinks, the place should not stink and the bartenders could be a bit nicer. Maybe I just had a bad night in there but unless someone else proves me... more

Well, underground bar with really odd attractions. I'll admit I have only been here once, on a Monday night for the karaoke, but I know they also do French film nights (also Mondays but before 10pm)

The bar is hard to find, only a small pyramid above the door which goes straight downstairs. Inside the space is huge, though the karaoke night is pushed into a small area by the bar. Be prepared... more
