Squaremeal Review of The Old Blue Last ?

No-frills drinking den The Old Blue Last doesn’t exactly follow the Shoreditch template – not in terms of looks, anyway. With its sparse decor & black wooden floor, you’d be forgiven for thinking that this is a proper spit-&-sawdust joint, yet it has garnered a clutch of awards & untold praise, mainly thanks to its owners, Vice magazine, who have imbued the OBL with an edgy sense of cool. Bands & DJs play every night, & it’s often the first chance to see acts before they hit the big time – 2011 saw gigs by The Vaccines, for example, while artists such as Arctic Monkeys & Lily Allen played here in their pomp. Beer is the booze of choice, with Stella, Guinness & Beck’s regularly available on draught.
