Bedroom Bar

A late-night bar with free live music during the week and DJs at weekends

A two-floor Shoreditch party spot, this Rivington Street bar-cum-club proves a pull for the party crowd throughout the week. There's something going on pretty much every night, from live acts and DJs to comedy nights and open mic sessions. Keep an eye on their website for regular updates.

It's not all about the party though. Some cracking Turkish food comes courtesy of Mangal 1 (think lamb and chicken shish kebabs, lamb ribs and lamb chops from the charcoal grill, alongside meze, salads and baklava to finish), while cocktails include mojitos, bramley sours, spiced daiquiris and a Hoxton fizz - a mix of Zubrowka, fresh mint, elderflower, lime and apple puree.

The beer selection is strong. Blue Moon, Bitburger and Amstel are on tap, with Hackney Hopster, Pistonhead Lager, Shoreditch Blonde and Doom Bar available by the bottle. There's a short wine list too, as well as shots and bombs.

Leaving Bedroom Bar on a high is always the great end to a mid weeknight. Having gone there to listen to a fellow Aussie play, the talented Jude Pearl with her sarcastic pop tunes, we were also delighted by the sounds of Acantha Lang. But the highlight was Neutral Ground Brass Band from Amsterdam who played New Orleans Jazz for the better part of an hour. I was itching to get up and dance and by the end, everyone was up on their feet, grooving and swaying to the beats. With free entry and reasonable drinks, (and free comedy upstairs too) it's the best way for a pick me up on a Wednesday! I'll be back next week!

Although it's nothing special, I went to the Bedroom Bar on a Saturday late afternoon/early evening, before dinner. We had a voucher for 4 cocktails (£14ish, through TimeOut).

The cocktail menu was very small, you could only choose between a very limited number, which is especiallydifficult when I go out with my partner, as she's very fussy.

Our of the 4 cocktails, we got two that were the same, and delicious, creamy and great -- I'd go back for them. The other two were ok, but hey, they were cheap! It was quite quiet at that time, but I've seen it get busier later in the evening when I've passed by


Went here for my first time a couple of nights ago and I really enjoyed it. I was an open mic night, but everyone who played was very good. The place was not very full, but it was relatively early on a week day so it was to be expected. The staff was very friendly and the venue is cosy so I would definitely recommend going. 

I've been there many times in the last months to see some friends playing, and generally I don't reccomend it as good club of East London. 

Talking about the ground floor and the comedy cafe gigs, it's a really average venue, as you can find 100s in the area.  Twice the sound was not amplified good (for a bass house night I think it's quite important). 

The admission lady at the main entrance wasn't polite at all andthe bouncers were rude and aggressive even with girls, over reacting and treating people as shit. Also my friends have been charged more than the other people once.

Maybe they have a lack in the promotion too, some nights were empty with an old dj with no style, trying to pump up some old  tunes.. it was quite embarrassing.

About the bar they sell cheap beers, cider and cheap wine, and the super alcool they only have the commercial ones. 

Many more venues in the same street, with friendlier people and better vibes.

Something of an institution in Shoreditch and like a good wine just keeps getting better with age. Live comedy, great music and the best korean fried chicken in London with Jubo in residence - what more could you want in a night out?

Lovely venue, have seen a couple of nice Brazilian / world music gigs... would recommend it ;)

Went along for some really nice and mellow live music on a Wednesday night a while back, well priced drinks and super cocktails to boot. Plus the pork buns from Jubo aren't bad at all..

I visited Bedroom Bar early on a Saturday night and had some delicious Korean-style chicken wings and skinny chips in the small eatery next to the main bar. The sweet, sesame wings were some of the best I've ever tasted and I hear the comedy night, free on Wednesdays, is also great fun. After our meal we decided to move into the bar area but it was relatively small and open to the street on a cold night so we decided to go elsewhere given the huge amount of drinking venues nearby. However, the chicken wings alone will bring me back, overall a good experience.

possibly the worst place I have ever been to in London. we were charged £8 to get in only to find out that everyone else after us was charged £5 with a free drinks voucher. 4 of the 5 bands that were announced did not play. worst of all, my friend left a bag with birthday presents in the place which we didn't get back. we actually saw one of the waitresses wearing some of the stuff in the bag and when challenged we were pushed out onto the street and abused. we had to call the police and report it. AVOID!! there is an abundance of other, better places in Shoreditch, or why not venture to Dalston or Hackney instead. friendlier people and better bars.
