Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

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.
