I had a group of 18 people with me for my birthday and the outside area was great (and importantly, well heated)!

When you get in the hallway you’re amazed by the massive and long plants (you can get cool instagram photos). The bar inside it’s ok coolish, but everyone was really outside and there is not enough sitting places outside...there could be much more....we had to...More

No bags allowed on the floor, no bags allowed on backs, why not just let fewer people in? Or offer a free cloakroom?

Thanks for the feedback Cynthia! Unfortunately we must keep music outside to a low level due to the neighbours, but I'm glad you had a good time.

Booked a table for 7 of us- which I would recommend doing on a Friday night out on the outdoor terrace area- got to skip the queue and guaranteed table! Well priced drinks and good music with a great vibe. Solid evening!

Went for drinks on a Saturday (March 2018) - the outdoor seating area is great and super fun. There is a satellite bar outside so drinks are super accessible.

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

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??
