True to its name, the trendy Electricity Showrooms is indeed set in an old electricity showroom where, in the 1920s, people went to find the latest in domestic appliances.
Although the selection of toasters, vacuums, and gramophones has been replaced by beer, cocktails, and pub food, the venue’s bright theatrical style still draws in passersby with its jazzy allure.
The revolving wooden door leads patrons into what appears to be a demure 20s-style pub, but the ornate tin ceiling, olive green wallpaper, art deco peacock light, and buttoned leather couches on the first level give way to a decidedly 1970s disco chic décor in the downstairs room.
Here, the main attraction is the Saturday Night Fever-inspired dance floor with flashing multicolored tiles that illuminate the chaotic crowd and their moves, as hummingbird wallpaper and red leather sofas add to the overall retro ambiance.
Usually packed to the rafters with a young, funky, and outgoing crowd that loves to mingle and dance, Electricity Showrooms is a great place for those looking for a club with a bit of history and style.
Fashionable Shoreditch locals, generally young and rowdy, mostly 20-somethings.
Music features 70s and 80s hits as well as popular chart hits.
Pub menu served daily until 10:30pm. Items include Welsh rarebit, sausages, pies and mash, and fish and chips.
Appetizers and sides £1.50–£5.50, entrées £6.50–£9.50, desserts £4.50. Beer £3.50, mixed drinks £6.
Casual during the week, smart casual on the weekends.
Friday and Saturday nights.
