They have a Jukebox, Pinball Machine and Pool Tables. There's no reason to say more about The Pipeline Bar in Shoreditch, but we will.
The Pipeline bar is a wicked but elegant rock bar by Liverpool street station in London where greasers and regular Joes are equally welcome to show their true colours. Painted black with cocky neon lights, this rock n’ roll music bar in the City of London has an interesting mix of beers, spirits and lethal shots - best enjoyed over a game of pool, by the juke box, the dart board or at the pinball machines.
Not everyone has seen 'The Basement', the event and live music bar which most days lay like a sleeping dragon underneath the main bar. But anyone who has seen The Basement bar when it fires up with rock and punk bands playing live music sets on the big stage and felt the Jagermeister machine getting the juices flowing, will never forget the experience. The Basement has catered for burlesque performances, tribute bands, metal club nights, comedy nights and corporate events in the past.
To be up to date with the bands or events you should follow their Facebook group. You can book an area or a pool table in advance which is advised for larger groups. The Food served at The Pipeline is a mix of traditional bar grub and some international favourites such as a Chicken Curry and while this is yummy, the juke box is the true Rolling Stone of this independent rock bar.

Great place to have a few drinks with close friends, while playing pool, darts pinball and listen to some great rock tunes.... my favorite bar at the moment.
Amazing place, made a whole night here, drinking, dancing to a live gig, playing on the pinball machine and pool table then had something to eat. Honestly, me and my boyfriend had a blast.
Don't know what place these other reviews went to but it certainly wasn't the same one I did. All 5 star reviews? Hmm, suspicious. Here's my experience of it: I arranged a stag night (well, all-dayer) last year. It was while the Olympics were on, so summer 2012. We had planned to get there in the afternoon and pretty much stay there till last knockings. I picked this because not everyone in the party were rockers but the groom and many of the stags were, including me. Didn't want anything too dingy because wanted to cater for everyone. All of us were at least in our 30's and most of us older, so none of us are drunken louts and are relatively well behaved. My main problem with this place is the owner. We got there about 3 o'clock on a Saturday and there couldn't have been more than about 6 people in there and most of them looked like tourists who would have had a drink or two then left. You'd have thought that a party of about 20 would have been welcomed and they would have tried to keep us in there but you'd be wrong. They had the olympics on the big screens, along with the sound and had the juke box off. We're in a rock bar and we want to hear rock music and there's already zero atmosphere. I ask the barman politely if we can have the juke box on but he says he can't do that. I ask what I assume is the manager if we can have the juke box on, perhaps leaving the olympics on the big screen. He says no, as it 'would spoil it' (meaning the viewing of the olympics). Already, I don't like his attitude so I pull out the whip-round which is a good few hundred pounds in cash and say; "that's a shame, as we've got all this money to spend". All he has to say to this is "good luck" in a dismissive manner. I had nothing more to say at this point. I told the guys about this exchange and the general consensus was that we finish our drinks and leave, which we did. We left him with the 3-4 customers that were left. I think that says everything you need to know about the management here. I doubt this place will be open much longer.

Really liked this place, the interior was as quirky as the place was chilled out! Had a great time
