A bold red and silver star adorns the wall behind the stage in this intimate boozer, which has fast become the epitome of scruffy East End cool. A young, up-for-it crowd enjoy a laid-back, pubby vibe, but most of them are really here for the music: low-key gigs from big bands and youthful hopefuls, and an eclectic yet funky-fresh line-up of disco to house to indie nights, burlesque freak shows and wacky quiz nights (cash for the winners, free pasta for everyone).

Watch out for madcap bash Bastard Batty Bass on monthly Thursdays, and various free or cheap sessions from Europe’s best underground DJs, such as Mark 7, Ray Mang and Mulletover resident Geddes. The Tuesday-night quiz is a big hit with locals, and not solely because of the free food; Sundays are all about tasty roasts.

This pub is in a good location along Bethnal Green Road and is open until 2am on the weekends, unlike a lot of places nearby. I've been to the Star of Bethnal Green and always enjoyed it even though it's quite grungy. The last time I went though, I requested a song from the DJ and he said that by requesting a song I was insulting his music and essentially saying that I didn't like anything he had played up to that point. He was very rude and it's put me off ever going back.

I went to Star of Bethnal Green with my flatmate last Monday after having just moved to the area. We got the 14 chicken wings and 2 fries for £10 - such good quality! The chicken was very tasty, especially with the General's Sauce. We also got a bottle of Prosecco to celebrate our move! The pub has a really nice chilled atmosphere and the staff are great. They have a loyalty card which is a no brainer for anyone who lives in the area.
