SquareMeal Review of The Book Club

"GOOD"

As a lively Shoreditch social, this Book Club goes from strength to strength. By day, The Queen of Hoxton's multi-faceted sister doubles as crash pad/proxy office/cultural space/ cafe-bar/all-day diner catering to slackers, surfers and jobbing creatives here for breakfast, hairs of the dog and an all-day menu of comfort food. Come nightfall, free thinkers and enthusiastic drinkers get oiled on craft brews, cocktails, punch jars and fair-value vino. In the basement, regular uproars often involve big-noise DJs such as Roots Manuva and Norman Jay ‘MBE’. Literary salons; poetry slams; stand-up comedy; drama and dance tuition; leftfield films; art installations; hip-hop pub quizzes; bake-offs; craft workshops; ping pong: to paraphrase Samuel Johnson, ‘if you're tired of The Book Club you're tired of life’.

Went here for a breakfast meeting with one of them trendy Shoreditch media types… definitely the place for it. Neat little brunch menu, the scrambled eggs were particularly fine! They've got a regular menu of events from poetry and philosophy to music and networking. It also appears to be quite a decent bar. Obviously it's less easy to judge that in the cold light of day…
