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.

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?
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.
