Old Street

This bar-restaurant-venue attracts a friendly mix of creatives, tourists and City boys. It comprises a small square of terrace and a large sunken bar area, where action buzzes around the long bar counter. The windowless back room is usually fenced off for shows by indie hopefuls, and occasionally bigger acts scaling down for warm-up shows and album launches. The venue site proudly lists the bands that have stopped off: The Hives, Vampire Weekend, Maximo Park…

As well as attractive draught beer choices – Red Stripe, Sleemans, Kirin Ichiban and Erdinger – the venue offers more than a dozen by the bottle, among them beers from Sierra Nevada, Samuel Adams and Goose Island. Some 15 standard cocktails – plus an Avenue of Buffalo Trace bourbon, Calvados and passion-fruit syrup – are priced around £7.

Hoxton burgers and big, big brunches (until 5pm) are stalwart attractions on the food menu, though there's also a new pizza venture – Circle Pizza Co – doleing out the dough.

I really like this place. Here are the reasons why:

1. The door staff are legends- just really nice people, even when dealing with wasters. I don't know why but that stands out to me.  
2. It's unpretentious (unlike some of its hipster neighbours). They play whatever music they fancy on any given day. You could be experiencing old school hip hop or funk or dance. Whatever it is, it's generally good.
3. There's a secret back room dance floor. This is imperative when combined with cocktails.
4. Everyone is just having a f*cking good time in there.

Small downsides, I'd love for it to stay open later (I think it closes at 1.30ish), I wanted to stay until at least 4am.... (I know, party animal).  Also in the dance floor area it's hotter than a sauna- jeans are a no go....
