Strongroom Bar & Kitchen
Strongroom Bar & Kitchen has been a Shoreditch fixture for nearly 20 years which, admirably, makes it something of a stalwart in a part of town not exactly averse to a whim or two. It's home to Strongroom recording studios, a free late-night music venue and a restaurant serving food from breakfast onwards. The kitchen hosts three-month pop ups. It's now being looked after by Salt & Dry - a street food duo specialising in pizzas, own-cured meats and grills cooked up on a barbecue set up in a burned-out Morris Minor. Dishes range from pulled pork and kimchi pasties, poutine and hot wings to salads, a burger made with Hereford blade, mackerel escovitch and a Ghurka chicken curry. The extensive beer lays heavy emphasis on microbreweries both home-grown and international. Check their website for details of live music and DJ nights.
