Redchurch

Brick Lane

Its decor a cross between a bordello and a corner pub, Redchurch is a quirky curveball to throw into any Brick Lane bar crawl. Narrow and (yes!) red, it’s a DJ bar at heart, which grows lively as the clock nears midnight, but the bar also prides itself for ‘working for over a decade with mixologists who specialise in punches’.

Quite so: there are other cocktails, including bloody marys (with Finlandia) and bloody marias (with tequila), but it’s the punches that catch the eye, serving four to 20 people at £9.50 a head. House cocktails include a house mojito with Bacardi, elderflower, ginger ale and a suspicion of gingerbread, and a Chinese cosmopolitan (£11) with lychees, citrus and Grey Goose Le Citron.

You’ll find Sagres, Duvel and Cusqueña among the beers, a variety of Rekorderlig fruit ciders, and nondescript house wine from £4.50 a glass.

I like this place on a saturday night, it's open late and they do some decent cocktails to round the night off. It will almost definitely be busy and people have a tendency move away from the bar, but the apple martini is decent if not a 'work of art'.... expect a slice of apple sailing a blackberry merrily across your glass, not Rembrandt.

THIEVES DEN! Overcrowded, overpriced, pretentious bar staff.. AVOID!!! The girls in our group noticed a pair frisking their bags at the bar.. In fairness to the security they threw the guys out when we got them over but we later discovered my girlfriends phone had been stolen (2am call to Romania.. Hmm)... Worse, if the thieves don't get your money/phone the extortionate drink prices certainly will (£8.50 for a double mixer?!).. A bartender wearing a ridiculous pointed hat took the liberty to attempt adding several pounds as a gratuity, declaring his £10 apple martini a 'work of art'... We're talking about a shabby, run of the mill Shoreditch bar.. Avoid like the plague..
