Party Earth The Shoreditch Review

The Scene

Confidently named after East London's trendiest borough, The Shoreditch lives up to its moniker with a cool vibe, hip décor, and fashionable clientele.

Confidently named after East London’s trendiest borough, The Shoreditch lives up to its moniker with a cool vibe, hip décor, and fashionable clientele.

An unusual collection of decorative items ranging from pink flamingos, vintage paintings, and saloon mirrors to a golden pineapple lamp and authentic tiger skin nailed to the ceiling creates a kitschy backdrop for the urbanites and artsy types who settle into the black vinyl couches and parlor chairs to nosh on burgers and beer.

Those looking for tiki cocktails can sidle up to the bar, overseen by a hula girl mannequin, as a happy-go-lucky crowd of music lovers and trendy professionals head upstairs to hear the eight-piece jazz band.

While eccentric old-timers indulge in some fancy footwork and finger twirling on the dance floor, however, there’s an entirely different scene happening downstairs, where laser beams, neon signs, and blasting DJ-spun techno beats provide a dramatic contrast to the golden-era flair above.

With its split levels and split personalities, The Shoreditch manages to draw a diverse and easygoing crowd whose only desire is to indulge in what the venue’s front windows declare as life’s major necessities: Music, Dance, Food.

Tip from Emma:

If you’re working your way through the cocktail list, make sure you aren’t wearing beer goggles by the time you reach the end. That is in fact two zeros in the price of The Tiger’s Head, which will set you back £800. It serves eight, but is still a good chunk of change even to split – so it’s probably best to stop while you’re still ahead.

Party!!!

I LOVED the Shoreditch. One of my absolute favorite bars in London, the Shoreditch is a mix of trendy and laid-back that makes going out so much easier. I went with a pretty big group and wish I was still in London so I could make it my weekly place. We danced all night long. The DJ was open to recommendations so we got him to switch to old-school hip-hop. The bartenders were all really nice and make excellent drinks. Unfortunately, my roommate got her iPhone stolen here, so be really careful ladies with your bags!! Overall though, I had an incredible time here and tell anyone visiting London to stop by.
Love This Place!

While studying abroad in London, I went out to The Shoreditch with a big group of friends. I had been to the area of Shoreditch during the day and LOVED the laid back, funky vibe and streets filled with vintage stores and indian food, so I knew the bars had to be just as cool. And I was right! The Shoreditch (bar) gave me a great break from the fancy clubs I'd been going to and gave my feet a break from the heels I always had to wear to them. The crowd is really friendly, cool, and young and the music fits that crowd perfectly. It's a place you can bring a group of friends without having to worry about old creepy guys coming up to you, but also can meet new friends if you so desire. And the drinks are great and relatively cheap! The only setback I've had there was getting my iPhone stolen but the bouncer was SO helpful and did everything he could to try to get it back, plus that can happen ANYWHERE. I would absolutely recommend this bar to anyone looking for a fun, but laid back, night out with friends.
Crazy nights at The Shoreditch

I really liked The Shoreditch upstairs bar- it has a fun, casual vibe and is filled with all sorts of people ranging from post-work business men, to ultimate hipsters, to University students like myself. The music is your standard top 40 pop but you can also request songs since the DJ booth is right next to the bar. There are comfy booths for sitting and an unofficial dancefloor that fills up as the night goes on and people get sufficiently more intoxicated. I recommend The Shoreditch if you're looking for a decently-priced, social night out with a big group of friends. Any group smaller than 5 might want to head to a more intimate bar setting.
Laid-back bar in the Trendiest Area of London

If you find yourself in Shoreditch this is a must-go-to bar. Unlike many of the bars and clubs in the area The Shoreditch has no cover charge and if you go on the weekend after 10pm (Londoners start early) you won’t be let down. Upstairs the DJ plays popular hip-hop tunes and old school remixes. But be warned, hipster men in glasses will try to grind on you to songs ranging from TLC’s “Waterfalls” to Kanye’s “Ni**as in Paris.” As the night gets later and the crowd more intoxicated, people begin to stream downstairs into the smoky dungeon. As you descend the stairs you succumb to a foggy dungeon filled with grungy locals and reggae music. If you are looking for a dance party that goes all night this bar with a young, hipster crowd may be your perfect spot.
