|Also, really decent bouncer on the door here - must be the best bouncer in London. Always introduces himself to you and shakes your hand on the way in. |
Would be good if there was more of this in London instead of attitude.
A nice touch.

|After a night in the pub, myself and three other repaired to this fine establishment. An effort at witty banter was made in the cab there, the joke being that we were going to a British Legion. Unfortunately this was lost on one of the lads, whom I shall refer to only as DOCILITY JONES (aka. The Careless Swagman), who believed we were actually going to a late-opening British Legion conveniently placed in the centre of Shoreditch. He continued to think this until the actual moment when we stepped in side. He later spilled an entire pint of Leffe over me, so he wasn't on the best of form.|
I'll tell you what, there were some fits birds in here. The beer of choice Leffe, which is perfectly palatable when already drunk and in dire circumstances. They also, rather bizarrely for somewhere you wouldn't expect to care about such things, serve Bellevue Kriek on tap. Music was more of the student bop variety, at one point Ray Charles was audible which seemed wrong. Seemed to be free to get in even after 11 but that may be because the guy we were with knew the bouncers.
Toilet attendant earned himself a quid simply because he did actually say "Lucky lucky lucky lucky, freshen up for the punani!", which was unreal.
I supposed I'd go again if pissed and restless in these parts. It was alright.

|Used to be good, but in recent months they have been turning down the lights so it gets very dark and cranking up the music. I guess they are trying to create more atmosphere but it doesn't work and you can't then chat up any ladies!!|
Having said that I have had some very fun nights in here and the music is good.

|Is this place ever open? I've tried to have a drink in here countless times, and it's always shut. A bit confusing considering the times I have visited have been within the designated Happy Hours advertised on the board outside.|
