I get to experience Loves Company fortnightly for the AfroBeat Karaoke sessions that take place on Thursdays. It offers great vibes and a place to let loose and sing your heart out!

Happy hour exists but usually only limited to the bar upstairs. The drinks could be cheaper me thinks! 

Overall positive vibes !


Stumbled into this place by pure accident when looking for somewhere to grab a drink and a quick bite. Literally right by Old Street station this is a real find with quirky and interesting decor. Interesting cheekily named and refreshing delicious cocktails such as ‘Blue Balls’ and simple toasties to satisfy any hunger pangs. Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere, great informal place for a good old catch up.


I woulda just walked straight past this place! Although it has a huge glass front from the outside you can't see how lovely and light it is inside. As you walk in you are greeted by friendly bar staff. I went early on a Wednesday evening so while waiting for the rest of my group I was given the pick of the seats . They instantly bought water over for the table and asked if I needed any help with the menu.

The décor inside is awesome! Bright flowers & tree murals on the walls, mismatched wooden tables, fresh roses on each table, tealights in teacups and bronze pipework on the ceiling making for a rather striking light. The upstairs is small but the huge windows along with the quirky decor make it a bright and fun place for a post work drink. There is also a downstairs bar which I haven't been down to but I think is a little more lively.
The cocktail menu is pretty extensive and the choices are varied and fun. I tried Sink the Pink which consisted of gin, pink grapefruit and lemon with a lovely dark cherry as part of the decoration; beautifully presented as well as a balanced cocktail -it wasn't bitter like it sounds!
Although we were only there for a short time I had a lovely time, would recommend it to cocktail lovers and will definitely be back!
