This Shoreditch High Street bar and café is the sister venue to the popular Clerkenwell haunt, Café Kick. There's more to it than food and drink though, with its two floors given over to table-football, stand-up comedy, live sports and even the odd speed-dating event, should you be looking.

The food menu ranges from burgers, hot dogs, teriyaki chicken sandwiches and pulled pork baps to Spanish charcuterie platters, cheese boards and a chorizo sandwich made with sourdough bread, rocket and piquillo peppers. Keep an eye out for daily specials, too. 

There's a Latin flavour to the drinks, with beers from Sagres, Super Bock and Estrella.

What a fun place! I wish more bars were themed like this, there were lots of table football games - which was great for meeting new people in a fun and unique (...if maybe too competitive) way. One of the liveliest places I've visited in London, but in the best way possible! It improved our night out in Shoreditch so much. For Shoreditch High Street the prices weren't too crazy, the bar staff were just as much fun as the rest of the place and I can't imagine how cool this place must be on actual match days!

Vibrant, colourful, cheerful, loud, too busy most of the time, especially when football matches or rugby games etc! Nice place if you're looking for something lively!


If you are lucky enough to get a table (or at least squeeze through the evening crowd to the bar), it’s a great place to get a drink and a bite in East London. Outside tables are lovely for an afternoon meeting on a warm day, but the place turns upside down when the football is on, so, if you are looking for a quiet-ish place to have a drink with a friend in the evening – look elsewhere.

downstairs is basically a mental football cinema, best place to watch the beautiful game in london to my mind. only downside is that they're bit trigger happy with dipping the sound to pipe in whatever gash music they're playing when there's a break or a bit of build up or whatever. never makes sense to me as everyone is blatantly there for the footie. just pisses everyone off and i've got no clue why they keep doing it.


This is my regular spot for sport in Shoreditch (there is a very limited choice). Make sure to get in early to grab a seat in front of the 80 inch TVand away you go..... Great atmosphere, great staff! I agree that the food is rather expensive as is the beer..... But still a good bar in my books.

Just left this place on a night that England are playing a World Cup Qualifier. As I work in the area I know there is a severe lack of nice football pubs/bars so often come here. However I will never be back after tonight when the manager refused to put the sound on for the game but insisted on playing repetitive house music. When I asked the manager if he would put the sound on he refused stating it was a Friday night. I pointed out that since the bar advertises itself as a sports bar this should surely be irrelevant. However his response 'Darling I'm not putting the sound on' was pretty enraging. Disappointing considering I'd already spent a fair amount on two rounds of drinks and a round of overpriced food on the premise that I'd be able to watch a football game in a sports bar, money I wouldn't mind spending to watch a game in what I thought was a good bar. I implore sports fans , especially female ones for fear of being brushed aside 'darlings', to avoid this place.


Bar Kick is by far the best place to go in Shoreditch and their coctails are definitely the best in town. Great staff too!
