Catch is an engagingly mixed-up beast: a poky late-night bar/club that has the trappings of a hip hangout and the atmosphere of a student union. This means you get intimate wooden booths, dancefloor-oriented tunes from the DJs, a pool table during the day and a lot of crazed dancing as night rolls on. Catch's ground floor is essentially a late-night boogie den – there's no entry fee and it fills up pretty promptly with Staropramen- and Guinness-toting punters after 11pm. The small upstairs room can be hired out and attracts a great mix of adventurous young promoters. The Rebel Dining Society's 'Death By Burrito' Mexican popup that used to be here has now moved to a permanent site in Hoxton Square.

FLIES IN MY DRINK! If I could I would give a zero star rating as this place is actually a joke... Saturday night out(4.3.17), charged £10 on the door to get in which was not a problem until the following occurred. Went to the bar where there had to have been a fly infestation, because 3 out of 3 drinks that I had re-poured for me had a fly inside the cup. THAT IS DISGUSTING!Eventually I gave up and asked for a refund which turned into me being charged yet again for another drink. Why offer a refund and not actually do it? I was then brought outside with security to speak to a "manager" who did not look me in the eye, kept looking away from me as if I didn't exist, claimed to not understand me (I speak fluent English by the way) and insinuated that I was making a complaint because I was drunk by asking me 'how many drinks have you had?' when I had not had any yet. I am actually appalled by this behaviour and lack of good customer service. This club/bar is disgusting and completely lacks hygeine to contain flies by the bar, especially where people are paying their hard earned money to receive drinks with flies and to top it off not even one apology was given. The manager was not willing to give any kind of refund stating that his card machine does not offer a refund option and if he gives me cash his books/takings will be short at the end of the night and I should just accept 3 free shots as that's the best offer I'm going to get. I then took the free shots which I shared with the people I was with and left . It completely ruined my night! I would NOT recommend going here in fact I strongly advice against it. This place deserves to be shut down until this fly problem is rectified. As for the "manager", just get a new one because this one doesn't have any manners whatsoever!
It was one of my worst experience in London, first time that something like this happened to me in Shoreditch. We went to this bar with 8 friends, the bar was absolutely empty all the night but they required a 50pounds booking deposit to "secure the reservation" which they said will be fully redeemed in drinks, but it never happened because they charged us. At the end, 30 pounds were remaining from the deposit and they said that they would not give us back the deposit nor give us drinks because the bar closed at midnight. They said that it was our fault, that we "didn't want to consume". We lost 30 pounds, they make money at our expense, the manager was so disrespectful, insulting, not flexible and rude. It was a really bad experience, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Sadly this club displays racist tendencies ... The rude manager claimed she didn't want an 'urban booking ' in the club ..., so closed the evening thus ruining my friends birthday party .., nice one
The worse place I have ever been. Cocktails are served in dirty glasses, cheap quality . Lady that claim herself as w manager of the venue has been very arrogant and rude to me and my friends and kicked us out of the venue using a very bad words towards us. I would never recommend going there to anybody, bad quality drinks for very high prices and worse service we could ever get.
haven't been here in years, came for a gig and found out they do food now! will definitely be back to try
