Been twice, love it. Shame staff are more concerned about guys with their t-shirts off than the state of the loos.

Small, intimate, banging tunes, everything you need for a good night out with good friends. The staff were so accommodating and made our night really special. Would recommend! The only place to find good music!!

The play list here is a hit. We swaggered on in not knowing what to expect. Would it be boogie nights or would it be some awful 80's retro bar. It was neither, Elvis, Little Richard, Johnny Cash through to 90's indie... Great line up....More

Troy 22 is not a place you hear about. It's more a stumble-across-it-late-at-night thing that'll make you revise your plans for the evening. Entry is free, both to the downstairs flamenco bar and the upstairs rock 'n' roll club. Well, room. It feels like a...More

A bizarre tiny little room of a bar with a good music selection- so much so that it's heaving and every flat surface has someone dancing on it. A fun night

Ignore the rest of the comments if you are a dull mainstream seeking traveler. Great place, friendly people with totally non London vibe! Recommend who ever is bored of the ordinary

Ok, it's a bit of a hidden gem in theory, a rock'n'roll bar off a side street in central London. The music is good, there's some cool rock'n'roll posters. But this is one of the worst bars I've ever been in. The beer ls off...More

Description
BARCHICK SAYSBanish all images of Brad Pitt in shining armour, the only thing shining in this bar will be your face; it’s a sweatbox, but one we want in on. Get past the bouncer, (which shouldn’t be too tricky if the crowd’s anything to go by), head along the postered corridor and wing a right down the stairs. You’ll find yourself in Spain, or Mexico, or somewhere other than Soho, even the climate’s hotter.The bar’s in front of you so go and introduce yourself. We kept it simple with G&Ts (having said that we’re not sure they do anything more complicated so maybe stick to a beer). Drinks sorted? It’s time to get involved with intense and sweaty salsa on the dancefloor, sexual. There are three amigos perched on some sort of stage decorated in Spanish dresses and flowers getting the crowd going. Not up for dancing? Grab a table at the front and get people watching, one bald guy in Jesus sandals looked like he was snake charming and one girl looked like she had ants in her pants, but as a unit the crowd were on fire, BarChick joined in so do it.All danced out? There’s a chilled bar upstairs. The vibe is old school rock and you’ll see pictures of your old friends on the walls (if like BarChick’s Dad you hung with Morrison and Cash). The order is shots, presumably you can add mixers, but we kept it straight for simplicity’s sake, oh and don’t be fooled by the beer taps, they’re dry, but no one’s complaining.GOOD FORTake a cheapskate, Take a date, Take your mates, Beers, Dancing, Sculptor Andrew Logan shared his five favourite London spots with us last week, but today it’s the turn of something altogether less high brow. Amusingly honest city guide Itchy London have picked five places they love, all of which involve booze.Drink Shop & Do is probably not that secret, but we only recently discovered it, and anyone who is a fan of delicious homemade cake (everybody, surely?) should do so too. Teapots with a side of penny sweets and cocktails made with sherbert will keep you buzzing for hours – plenty long enough to ‘Play with clay Michael Jackson style’ or get down to a game of Scrabble. They’re also soon to launch Drink Shop & Dance below decks.Bar Centrale is a low key Italian pizzeria on Chalk Farm Road that we only wandered into because we like saying ‘ciao’ a lot. Their pizzas are cheap, massive and completely delicious, the house wine is cheap and there’s a big roof terrace out back for those who wish to order an espresso and chain smoke Marlboro reds afterwards, just like they do in Italia.The Carpenter’s Arms, just off Tottenham Court Road, is a nice little pub in itself, but we’d like to draw your attention to its adorable roof terrace, which is drenched in fairy lights, antique bird cages and willow pattern plates. It’s a bit teeny, but worth a wait if they’re busy as you’ll feel like you’re drinking in the Secret Garden. Well, nearly. If it’s closed, or just way too cold, there’s a corner on the ground floor that was modelled on someone’s Granny’s living room. 123 Bethnal Green Road is one of those amazing shops that you can only go to when you don’t know what to buy. It will answer Christmas present conundrums by the dozen in the next month, no doubt. The building itself is like the embodiment of a Guy Ritchie film – it used to sell rifles and ammunition but three proper east end blokes were put away for life after its closure for selling unlicensed weapons. Now beautifully refurbished, it sells vintage and designer clothes, kooky jewellry and gifts and Lady Gaga paper dolls. But the real secret is their collaboration with the Disappearing Dining Club, Too Much is Never Enough; a course in each department, plenty of booze and dancing in the basement until late.Troy 22. Hanway Street. Place of many a blurry end of an evening. This is a bar – club at a big push – in a first floor living room, and is our go-to ‘the pub’s closing, where shall we go?’ venue. It’s far too hot, the drinks aren’t that cheap and the toilet is horrible, but it’s open late and is (usually) free entry. The music is a brilliant mix of sixties pop and indie, and when everyone starts jumping up and down to Mr. Brightside it feels like the floor is going to fall through.Tags: 123 bethnal green road, bar centrale, bars, Camden, carpenter's arms, drink shop & do, food, itchy london, pizza, secret london, secret london spots, Spitalfields, the disappearing dining club, troy 22
