Just ‘a clutch bag’s throw away from Haggerston station… and one-and-a-half-songs-on-an-iPod’s stroll from Shoreditch High Street’, this bar and venue was co-opened by drag legend Jonny Woo. On the one hand, it’s a place you can nip into for a quick after-work drink: the bar staff offer proper cocktails as well as the usual beers, wines and spirits. But on the other, it’s a platform for forward-thinking queer entertainment, hosting everything from cabaret to performance to DJ nights. It’s a genuinely mixed space where the vibe is less ‘anything goes’, more ‘everything encouraged’ and it is perfect for what Woo clearly regards as something of a crusade: to keep gender-ambiguous and adventurous alternative cabaret thriving. Prepare to be glorious.
