Despite being owned by hipster bible VICE and located in the heart of the Shoreditch party scene, the Old Blue Last defies preconceptions. Absent are the clichéd bare lightbulbs and brick walls, and, while London- and US-made craft beers are available, low-brow big-brand brews like Heineken and Grolsch get prime representation. Furniture is minimal, something you’ll be thankful for from 7pm onwards, when nearby digital drones flock in to decompress over pints. Its enduring popularity – and reputation for first-class live music – keep the Old Blue Last noteworthy above other East End scene spots.
