    Movies on a Monday. They let you bring in your own food. Reasonable for drinks. Popcorn and crisps provided with comfy sofa. What more could you want? They also do karaoke afterwards 😛

    The entry is usually free, drinks are cheap and there is cool music too. Also the karaoke night on Mondays is great fun - what's not to like? http://j.mp/XVKLsg

    It’s all about hot East London kids, music genres mixed like someone hit shuffle, Poundland prices and a night that you won’t forget. You’ll quickly understand why it gets so busy. Read more

    Great spot due to its location near some of the best nightclubs in London and its funny tip system. Extremely friendly staff too.

    В помещении воняет, но привыкаешь. Дружелюбный персонал. Русский охранник - приятный мужик. Очень дешево. Музыка всегда разная, а если не понравится - можно уйти в Dance Tunnel за соседней дверью.
