Apples & Pears
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This slick little bar at the Aldgate end of Brick Lane hosts club nights, live acoustic music, comedy, film screenings and variety events. There's a cute little garden area too, though it can get busy come summertime.
It's mostly about the cocktails at Apples and Pears. Options range from an eponymous house number (made from Russian Standard Platinum vodka, lemongrass, cloudy apple, garam masala caramel and Angostura bitters) to their take on a bloody mary - here called a 'bloody marley'. It's got a jerk kick, from Levi Roots' Reggae Reggae sauce.
There's a short wine list too, as well as Blue Moon, Hoxton Stout, Bethnal Pale Ale, Brick Lane Lager and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale catering to the beer hounds.
We are a independent, fun cocktail bar off Brick Lane, with an outdoor area, serving fabulously mixed drinks, whilst introducing colourful flavours and ingredients.
Our music programme is eclectic and lively, spinning records from funk and old school hip hop to disco, and soul at the weekends with some live music during the week. We have cocktail specials for £6.50 until 8pm daily. Feeling peckish? A wood fired pizza menu is available for party bookings.
We have two floors: a lounge bar with a centre skylight bar, and a late-night basement bar with a brick-vaulted ceiling, which is available for private hire. Both bars have access to a heated garden.
