Queen of Hoxton, Shoreditch- Bar Review

1-5 Curtain Road, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3JX

 

This was my first time to Queen of Hoxton. I had heard about it and it has been on my bars to visit in Shoreditch list for quite some time! We arrived around 11ish and managed to walk straight in. It is quite an expansive bar. Sitting areas along the right hand side, the bar flanks the left and areas to stand, chat/dance in between. It has a dark, cinematic, stylish design feel. The bar was long with lots of staff so, although very busy, we didn't have to wait too long for our drinks. The prices were happily affordable.

We headed downstairs to the club area. A small, dark, den of iniquity or a "youth club for adults" as they put it themselves. Busy, sweaty and sexy as everyone was dancing about to some fantastic house music. The small stage even had a girl ad-libbing over some of the tunes. I think that summed it up at this place; you will never quite know what to expect here but whatever happens you know it will be super cool and you'll enjoy it. They also have a spectacular roof garden - probably one of the best in London - that is normally open everyday but due to the terrible weather conditions, it was shut. Did it live up to the billing? Yes I think it did! This has to be one of the best bars in Shoreditch for me. I would be pretty sure that no night is ever a bad one at the Queen of Hoxton and wether you want to drink, chat, dance, relax or just feel cool then you can do it all here.
