Venue says: "Quirky cocktails inspired by classics. Soulful DJs on Wednesday to Saturday. Back streets of Shoreditch. Guest cocktail changing each month."

After finding the DSC (not easy for first-timers), descend the steep stairs and watch your head so you don’t bump it on the incredibly low ceilings. The effort is worth it: DSC may look like just another wood-heavy, dimly atmospheric London ‘speakeasy’, but in quality it’s made-to-measure rather than prêt-à-porter. What marks it out is profound and polished skill behind the bar: we’ve watched a single bartender manage three large orders at once, doing everything in the right order and not wasting a second. The changing cocktail list can sound wacky (Captain Cobbler is dark rum, amontillado sherry, kumquat, ginger and honey marmalade, pink grapefruit and IPA top), but in our experience here wacky always equals wonderful. Ordering off-list is always a safe bet. Gents in suits love it. So do those wearing denim, ink and facial hair. One size definitely fits all here.

Discount Suit Company says
Discount Suit Company is a neighbourhood cocktail bar, situated in the Petticoat Lane area on the back roads of Shoreditch near Spitalfields Market, five minutes from Liverpool Street Station.

The bar’s cocktail menus take inspiration from forgotten classics, and show a creative and quirky side to bar-tending. Don’t think you can’t order off the menu, or 'off the peg’ as they like to say. Or even ask a bartender to come up with something unique, given your palate and current mood.

You can also pick up light nibble like nuts, olives and gorgeous Covent Garden cheese from the Neal’s Yard Dairy. From Wednesday to Saturday, Discount Suit Company hosts an array of DJs whose track-lists are full of soul.

So I finally made it here after living round the corner for a year and a half… and it's great! Clever cocktails, decently priced, friendly atmosphere and a DJ perched at the end of the bar playing soul. It's absolutely tiny but it wasn't too crowded to find a ledge on a Saturday evening. I only had time for a swift one but I'll be back for a leisurely evening.

One of my favourite bars, tucked away on Petticoat Lane so that you'd never see it or find it without THIS REVIEW (just kidding). It's teeny tiny, and always busy in the evenings. It's also outrageously dark inside, like, you can barely see anyone. Perfect for a date or to hang with friends (probably not much good for big groups though). Nice staff, good drinks. Who needs more on this earth than that? I love it here.

Totally love this place! It's a bar nicely tucked away at a clothing shop on the edge of the city where you can see the Gherkin building around the corner. Once you find it and make it down the dark steep stairs, it is like walking into someone's basement party. There is music played from where the DJ sits in a corner at the bar. What I love about this place is that people who work here actually look like they enjoy being there. The simple cocktail list has enough variety for something to suit everyone's taste. On a Sat evening, there seems to a lot of locals on a night out or quick drinks before partying. The only thing I would watch is the ceiling height if you were a tall person.

Love this place!  If you can get one of the sofas in the corner it is a perfect place to people watch, have some cocktails and start your evening off right!
