Time Out says
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.
