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 neighbourhood cocktail bar in east London, located just minutes from Aldgate East tube station with close proximity to Brick Lane, Shoreditch and Spitalfields.
Our music programme is eclectic and lively, spinning records from funk and old school hip hop to disco, Motown and soul - both at the weekends and during the week. We also have live acoustic sessions and other live music. Plus we offer retro cocktail specials for £6 from 5-8pm daily.
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.

The bar staff are friendly professional and very knowledgable about drinks, (the cocktail list is yummy!!) the atmosphere is warm and inviting it's a lovely cosy place to go to for drinks, and music, in the heart of the city, making it great night out.
Great bar with a wide range of cocktails and food. Friendly staff and top notch service. Recommended for after work drinks or a lively Saturday night.
The friendliest bar in London with the best cocktails, great music and an atmosphere that makes you feel like you never want to leave! Both owners and staff work incredibly hard and are continuously improving and updating the venue, listening to their customers and ensuring that everyone that passes by has an unforgettable experience.
What a great find. Small bar at what used to be considered the wrong end of Brick Lane. No more ! This is absolutely the right place to be. Friendly staff buzzing atmosphere and last night (at Wham Bam Thank You Mam ) 4 awesome female acoustic guitarists. The headliner - Emily Lee was a showstopper. If the stage had been raised a little to improve sight-lines this would have got 5 stars all the way.
Great little bar, with a lively upstairs, and intimate basement with a more clubby feel. Hosts lots of cool independent nights from smaller promoters. Well worth a look!
