Love this bar - we've been coming here since we were about 19 (10 years!) - chilled out evening, informal and good prices! Outdoor courtyard area is massive which is even better in the summer time! Upstairs is more of a seating area and is always packed out but it's always easier to get served up here than at the... More

Thanks for the review ljc! Have you seen the main bar refurb yet - what do you think? It's been designed so you will get served a lot quicker here now than in the past! Best wishes More

On a Saturday night, I came across two fantastic members of staff, the blonde girl with a fringe made me the best rum and coke I've had all year, her friendliness made me want to stay the whole night. I would highly recommend the bar because of helpful and attentive the staff are. Later on, the staff member with an... More

Strongroom is a great fun, the price of the drinks even better. Huge place, 3 floors and I would recommend to stay outside, if not to cold. The staff very friendly, relax environment and good music and live bands

Spacious beer garden, hearty pub food and a great venue for live entertainment. Make sure to visit on the first Saturday of the month, where live music performers exhibit their work without an entry fee.

I booked a table for our Christmas party at fairly short notice & Georgy dealt with all my requirements very efficiently particularly as we had a number of specific food requirements. On the evening Phil looked after us extremely well & the food cooked by Tony was really excellent quality. I've had lots of very positive feedback from our staff... More

We popped in here for a drink on a busy Saturday night and we're so pleased to have found this place. We sat outside under pretty lighting and heat lamps, drinking wine and had a great time! We only stopped for an hour or so and didn't drink inside, however we really enjoyed this bar and would come back if... More

I had my 30th here on a Saturday. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, let me book a space from 3pm to 2am with people coming and going. Great during the day for kids and great atmosphere at night. Impressive drinks selection, people were really impressed with the gin list especially. Great food too!

We bought a Groupon ticket for standing comedy at this place at 7pm on a Thursday. We arrived at 6.30pm only to be told by someone who looked like the manager that actually they changed starting time to 8pm. They didn't inform anyone. He didn't apologize and he couldn't care less. We didn't want to wait 1.5 hrs there so... More

Decided to pop on this interesting looking place for a drink and to see their menu for food later that evening The menu looks OK but the young man behind the bar was so offhand, rude and dismissive they obviously don't need our custom! Think we will continue our search for somewhere where there are some staff with personality and... More

Description
Welcome to Strongroom Bar & Kitchen! For nearly 20 years we have been serving the ever changing faces of Shoreditch in our unique Jamie Reid designed space. As part of the legendary Strongroom recording studios, we have always been a creative and cultural hub and one of the first late night venues to entertain Shoreditch back in the dark days of warehouses, cruising joints and strip bars... Over the years, Shoreditch has matured and our operation has expanded and grown organically - Our kitchen has become synonymous with awesome burgers and fresh seasonal food. Our expansive beer list features local and international microbreweries. You can still discover new and emerging artists at our live music nights. Our DJ nights are eclectic and focus on 'real', not manufactured or commercial music. A recent extension offers light and airy surrounds for breakfast meetings, coffee mornings and private hire. And did we mention we have possibly the largest outdoor drinking and dining in the area??

Neighbourhood Profile
Shoreditch
The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well connected transportation links dotting its perimeter, along with an ever increasing variety of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood. There's a lingering post-industrial grit about Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
