SquareMeal Review of
This Shoreditch scenester comes into its own after your granny is tucked up in bed. Bizarre decor juxtaposes cheapo, mock-baroque salon & Ibiza club with glitzy suburban Chinese restaurant
& a splash of massage parlour – check out the basement jacuzzi bar. Queues form for top DJs playing weekend mash-ups such as the self-explanatory ‘house is house’, while ‘two for £8’ deals on
early-doors cocktails such as invidia (crème de menthe & cacao white, milk & cream) offer a clue to the target demographic – this is definitely no thé dansant at the Waldorf. Sophisticates
who’ve wandered into the place might prefer gimlet (£9) or the bottle service for premium spirits. All manner of special gigs & live nights keep the place fuelled up.
