Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Its authentically traditional pub exterior jutting out into Commercial Street like a ship’s prow, the Commercial Tavern is a wantonly wacky revamp outpost of the Hoxton boho bar beat.
Polaroids of 24-hour party people, a whole wall of Interview magazine covers and a cluster of retro lampshades all point towards the venue’s underground bent, although the pretty young bar staff will still provide your change on a silver platter.
It’ll be too dark to see the beer taps on the brightly tiled bar counter, but ale drinkers should enjoy a pint of Meantime Helles or London Pale Ale, or Young’s Special.
If chat and early Bowie over the speakers start to lose their appeal, there’s a pool table filling most of a small side room; upstairs has its own bar.
