Every bad customer service cliché in one venue in less than an hour. Bizarre security over kill. Aggressive & provoking security staff. The bar staff were hilariously awful. Couldn't get an order right then got annoyed when you had to ask again. One member of...More

It's so poor, overpriced, horrible staff. I'm never going back. Got served the wrong drink and then got chucked out for refusing to pay for something I didn't order. Even the bouncer who escorted me out said it wasn't fair.

The atmosphere is alright, good music and the place is large. However, £54 for 3 J.D cokes and 1 rum-ginger beer in small plastic glasses with hardly any alcohol is just absurd. Not to mention the staff is rude and inconsiderate. I went as some...More

Decent enough venue, very expensive but the worst part was the bouncers. On a power trip and over zealous pushing people around in a way which is undeserved

Booked tickets in advance and paid £22but arrived 11 minutes after 11pm due to London traffic however we got refused entry and offered a 'deal' to get into the club for £6 entry. Terrible customer experience all round.

Never, EVER allow yourself to be persuaded to visit this godawful excuse for a bar/club. It represents the absolute lowest common denominator of London nightlife, with a vile ripoff mentality which can only be coming from the upper echelons of 'management'. The only beer available...More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
