Cargo

SquareMeal Review of Cargo

Its original black-sheep clientele may have moved on to pastures edgier, but this long-running Shoreditch bar/nightclub still packs a crowd – albeit of a more mainstream, casual bent. Funky late-late DJ sets and gigs from up-and-coming talent in the brick-arched live lounge are part of the draw – so is the chill-out terrace with BBQ and a canteen, whose no-nonsense plates of lamb meatballs, Caesar salad, jerk-chicken burgers, tapas and pizzas are served until the party kicks in at around 10.30pm. Around £4.50 pays for a glass of house Chardonnay or Merlot from the terse wine list, as well as bottles of Sagres, Pacifico or Rekorderlig; mid-priced cocktails might also tempt some punters. Apparently, anyone caught referring to the place as ‘Cargos' will not be admitted by the security enforcers.
