    Delicious cocktails and a great environment to have a good time with friends or do computer work alone. A very large, open space with lots of seating and great ambiance. Excellent stout beer on tap

    Went to an event called Bar shorts, it's on the basement floor. It was a free event and enjoyed it so much! You could order food as well and drinks. Defo check if there are any events going on! :)

    Amazing place both to party & see great bands at night, but also for a chilled brunch at weekend or an antisocial moment thanks to free wifi. Like the idea of the "make your own" hangover Bloody Mary!

    This is my favourite place in London! It's a cafe, a bar a restaurant and a club all at once! When you go for breakfast please have the pancakes! You won't regret it!

    Came here on a sat night and the music was so fun! Great vibe, but the bar situation is annoying. There's one in each floor and a huge line to get to a bartender. Other than that, I loved it.

    This is the King of East-end cool spots for hanging out or enjoying alot of fun stuff going on - like the ping-pong upstairs or their left-field events and exhibitions downstairs. Good eats too.

    Quintessential hipster coffee shop in Shoreditch. Free wifi, lots of space, big windows, and great food/coffee. Not a ton of outlets; busy but not hard to get a table.

    This commendable bar-club comprises one expansive room - divided by a wall with an oval hole in the middle, giving the illusion that half of Hoxton is here - and a small pool room downstairs. Read more

    Not the best club sandwich for. £8.50, toast burnt. Only ate because so hungry. Lovely ambience though. Won't go again for food.
