A friendly East End bar nestled on a busy central London street, the lively Match Bar prides itself on its impressive menu of cocktails, each individually made with fresh fruit juices and top shelf spirits.
An open door policy creates an inviting, neighborly atmosphere that draws in chatty Londoners looking for great drinks and relaxed conversation among the somewhat funky décor of orange tribal-pattern wallpaper, black leather lounge chairs, scattered tea lights, and classic movie posters.
Large communal tables in the front area and plenty of outdoor seating on the patio add to the bar’s comfortable living room vibe, while more intimate tables are situated on two levels along the corridors.
There is also a bar area that attracts a slightly noisier crowd, and a DJ spinning upbeat tunes that keep the atmosphere and the patrons bopping.
A bustling, attitude-free nightspot, Match Bar offers a pleasant no-hassle evening of creative cocktails and good company.
Mix of London office types, expats, fashion students, and travelers, mid-20s and up.
