Ridley Road Market Bar

SquareMeal Review of Ridley Road Market Bar


Ridley Road is like an East End version of Portobello, only shorter and edgier in terms of ahead-of-the-trend eye candy. So it’s only right it should feature this tropical walk-in card only bar selling cheap and cheerful tropical cocktails for a fiver. Try Gin and Juice, a Ginger Mojito or one of the frozen cocktails; otherwise sink Red Stripe or the house plonk – served by the glass or in old stoppered bottles. There’s also Prosecco if you’re feeling flush, and a selection of craft beers. The gaudy, makeshift interior with its back-room disco/dance floor looks like something out of a Tarantino flick set in Puerto Rico, and there’s alfresco seating for smokers/sun worshippers. To eat, try Slice Girl’s; thin Neapolitan-style pizzas named after Spice Girls songs and served at peasant prices, before heading to the dance floor where live DJs keep the party going until late.
