The vibe was nice, the venue itself is very pretty and the music was good – they also serve food up to a certain time. However, the entry fee on the day we went was £10 and a double vodka coke was £10.50, so the drinks and entry are quite …

This place was great. Not what I was expecting at all. Great atmosphere. I was there for the Ana Cubelo art exhibition and it was such a great space to show off peoples work. The bar staff were nice although it was so busy it took a while to get to the bar. I’d definitely go back!

Went to a fantastic drag brunch here on Saturday. Good fun, great drag, and unlike some brunches we’ve been to before great food. Fantastic pizza.

What a hidden gem! Really good vibes, went on a Wednesday evening and the music was at the perfect level between a lively atmosphere and being able to have a conversation. They had a deal with 5 pounds pizza, which was brilliant and the pizza really good! Very friendly staff, lots of space will definitely be back here!

I’ve been here a few times and always had a good one. Very nice vibes at the bar with fairly cheap pints and pizza/food. The club downstairs is also quite fun. Only one star less since last time we waited almost an hour for our pizzas at …

Not worth the £5 entry, especially if you only want to use the bar area. Weird mix of people. Drinks were ok prices. We liked the interior design but left after one drink. More

Lovely place to chill and have fun! Me and my friends had an amazing night, staffs are very friendly, helpful and professional in their work. Bouncers were not allowing without ID in club that I liked the most. The DJ upstairs was excellent and atmosphere was very vibrant. I would highly recommend this place.

Very good breakfast (strictly 5!), good menu, nice place & kind service. Also suitable for big groups. The cappuccino was….far from our standard, not tasty, but the gladly gave us a refund with a smile. We find it great attitude & service.

The Book Club at Leonard street in Londen is a trendy club playing music (obviously) and servings beer and cocktails attracting young people. It can take some time to get the ordered drinks. Free admission (2023) and friendly staff.
Please like this review if found useful. Thank you.

The Full English Breakfast here was the best but it’s NOT anymore. They used to serve it with various baked beans in really nice sauce but for some reason they decided to change it to the can baked beans and the price is same. It’s nice place to chill but food becomes so-so now.

Came here for a chilled weekend drink. The prices are reasonable and the service was great. Had a really friendly barman who made a special effort with one of our cocktails. There’s also a downstairs area where we heard some spoken word performances

Regular spot for current urban music

Update: Was there yesterday. Its one of my fave spots in London due to the vibe and music. Casual dress is fine too which I love.

Bought 15£ tickets for a hip-hop night. Terrible! Convoluted DICE app to get the tickets, impossibly BORING night, horrendous DJs, vile rhum and coke. Ruined the mood. Waste of time and money!! And it is not a one-off for this place. Too bad I cannot give it 0 stars.

Lovely space. Quite large which was great because we had two large luggages that we were lugging around. The price is perfect for the portion size. Traditional breakfast- gigantic. All in all, good food, reasonable prices for good portions.

All is fine apart from ventilation and being overcrowded, is really bad, there is nothing to breathe with. And you let too many people there was no way to get through toilet apart from really pushing people.

I love the fact that i can my doggie with me to chill with friends and have brunch. They changed their menus but its still good i loved the available options and it changes every two weeks! They have free wifi so its good for work meetings or even if you need space to get some work done. A good chill spot

Here’s the thing. I know bouncers have a hard job, you are dealing with drunk people, it’s unpleasant. Now, that being said they also represent the front of your establishment. It’s a balancing act they simply have wrong here. Aggressive …

Hip bar in Shoreditch with a solid selection of craft beers. I came here for a late dinner during a business trip to London. Place was busy but not crowded on a Tuesday evening, with some people having drinks, some people working, other playing ping pong. I’d recommend the place for anybody who’s looking for a relaxed evening out.

Uninspiring. Waited 30mins to order to then wait another 10 mins to be told they didn’t have the drink. Then waited 5 mins to order and then be questioned what pizza I had ordered because they didn’t know their own menu. Would not recommend to my worst enemy.

Horrible experience getting past the airport-style security. Bouncers were on edge looking for a reason to escalate. Made it through the intrusive search but was put off enough to leave before we got through the door.

Bad music, event on Saturday advertised as 90s and 00s but no hits from then played and when asked the DJ they said they never play any! We were hoping for these, that was the reason we got tickets! Also very long queues at the bars and bartenders not able to keep up with the crowd and demand

Average wait for a drink was 25 mins at the upstairs bar from 7pm onwards. They possibly had stand-ins because those bar women really did not want to be there this Saturday. We will not be returning. A shame because it was my friends birthday.

A nice place for a drink and possibly the best nachos in shoreditch. The ping pong table is a good addition and makes for a nice space to hang around with friends. Bar service is slow given that it is extremely small and the bar staff are all a bit quirky… (insert inverted commas)

Lively and bright, even on a gloomy day. Large windows, colorful walls, a diverse crowd and good music. Came for brunch, house hash was delicious. Quick service without feeling rushed. Just the type of place I’d expect to find in Shortidge.

It’s so refreshing to see several other reviews mention the power trip the bouncers for this club are on. The sheer rudeness and “oh look at me, I’m a tough guy” trip was disappointing to say the least. Don’t even bother with this place, plenty of other spots around the area with much better people.

Would give this place more stars but the bar staff were working in slow motion so we were queuing for over 20 minutes. Cool music, probably wouldn’t go back though as toilets were also in a state and downstairs was sooo crowded it was like a un-consenting moshpit.

Almost totally empty on a Thursday evening after work had it not been for our work group it would have been almost deserted. Am not surprised though given the beer tastes awful. Pipes must need cleaning as both the Amstel and the Estrella were absolutely rank.

Good old book club! Can’t really go
Wrong with this if you want a good night out! Boom Club fails to fail! Dj always on point, drinks are good. Bit of a queue and wait for drinks but the vibe and atmosphere is always good. Been many times and yet to have a bad night!

Went for a friends birthday and had lots of fun dancing. ‘Bottomless’ was definitely true – I don’t think I ever saw an empty glass! It was a shame we were seated away from most people as we had booked tickets in advance but didn’t let that get in the way of a good time 🙂

Why are your bouncers on such a power trip? I’m not sure who they think they are, you really should consider changing them. They picked on a group in front of us in the queue for no reason and all hell broke loose. A manager came out and instead of defusing the situation he made it worse. Don’t ruin your night here people.

Went for a friends birthday and waited ages to be served. It wasn’t even busy at the bar but the barman purposefully ignored me and my friend and continued to served girls that came after us. As gay men, it felt pretty personal and something I have not experienced before.

Lovely cocktails, nice open space. And wow, there’s a ping-pong room. Music was a little loud for me and a the whole.place felt a bit trendy.
