I loved it but last year I came on the 30th of December (Friday night) and there was this amazing DJ, but he was not here this time. Will he be back? And if not could I have his details? Visited Apples and Pears on 2018-01-12

Very pleasant, friendly, and convenient. We hadn't been there before and were due to be part of an event at The Whitechapel Gallery soon after 6pm but had also arranged to meet a friend before, Looking on the net, Apples and Pears seemed the nicest place for a meeting. The reason I am giving only 4 stars because we didn't really make full use of the bar - no cocktails, just a couple of glasses of wine and a pizza ordered in (the Fiorentina that arrived was a little low on spinach.) But the place looks good and the staff were very friendly. We'd certainly go again. Thank you. Visited Apples and Pears on 2018-01-11

Great music and friendly staff, the only thing that lets this bar down is the door policy. Who knew a bar at the rubbish end of Brick Lane would be so selective on who they let in (no sportswear etc) I would advise leaving the strict door policy to a clubs in Mayfair and embrace the wardrobes of the hip east London crowd which you are trying to attract. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-12-01

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. We're pleased you had a good time. All venues are at liability to decide what dress code they have. Therefore, our dress code is smart/casual but we politely request no sportswear, hoodies and caps. This is stated on our website and stated when we confirmed the reservation – it also states that we can refuse admission on these grounds. This was politely explained to your guest at the time of their arrival.

Probably fun if you’re under 18. Our ‘table’ booking was a stool against the wall opposite a busy bar. Not a stylish or fun experience at all for us. Just like a gritty bar in Watford. Barmen were friendly. It’s just not a cocktail bar experience. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-11-24

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience with us. In regards to your table, we made you aware at the time of your booking enquiry that we only had available a low table with low stools, which was accepted. In addition, we are an over 21 venue and so we only accept bookings for guests that are 21 and over.

Friendly bar staff, lovely cocktails and you can have a pizza for under £12 whilst you drink your cocktails and listen to the live music. Thus , even though cocktails are fairly expensive (everywhere - not just here) the overall cost of a grand evening out with a nice meal is very reasonable. Great tip is to get in before 8 and make the most of happy hour! Thanks for a great evening. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-11-16

Great bar/great staff/great music/great night. Not as big as it looks in the pictures, but really nice vibe. 8 women on a birthday night out totally enjoyed themselves, we had a couple of tables so were able to chat until we'd drunk enough to start dancing round our table.

Had a wonderful Birthday drinks with my friends on a Friday evening. The space booked for 10 people was more suited to having 6-8 at a squeeze but we made it work. Music was great - brought us back to our college days and we were able to dance the night away with some delicious cocktails. The bartenders were friendly and really passionate about making the drinks. Ordered pizza from next door and they were delicious. All in all, a lovely night! Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-11-03

A fantastic little bar that punches well above its weight. Great staff, great music, laid-back but funky atmosphere to suit all. We were there on a 50th so upped the average age considerably But there are some bars that manage cool and unpretentious without a problem and this is definitely one of them. Hats off to Reggie the manager for running a very tight but massively friendly and welcoming place. Really can’t recommend it highly enough and one of the best nights out for a long while.

I came last Friday to this bar hoping to have a fantastic experience with my friend who came to visit me for the weekend. We had been to this bar for her 40th last year and we loved the waiter’s cocktails, waiters and doormen were friendly, funny, simply adorable. The bartenders were different than last year and we had a completely different experience. We first ordered a cocktail each and the tall blond bartender decided to add himself a 4 pound tip when my friend was about to enter her pin once he passed her the credit card machine. She is not from London and was really surprised. For the next round I decided to order drinks with another bar tender. I was hoping to order two more cocktails but he explained me that he could only serve beers and spirits as they were closing soon. I ordered a jim beam he poured me two, I reminded him that I only asked for one, he brutally threw away the drink into the sink and looked at us with anger, my friend asked him to calm down and ordered a jaegermeister. The other tall blond interrupt the waiter as he was serving her the glass, dipped his fingers in the glass and threw some drinks to her. We were in shock. She paid for the drinks and we soon left. I have been to a lot of cocktails bars in London but really wanted to come back to this one as it is small with good atmosphere and fun music. But after this experience, never again. Maybe the lovely doormen should teach those aggressive bartenders respect

Reply from Apples and Pears

We're sorry to hear you didn't have a good experience. However, as we mentioned on your other reviews, we don't know which bartender you are referring to as we don't have a blonde bartender within our team. In addition, one of the owners was present on the night and does not recall this incident. Please email kim@applesandpearsbar.com so this can be investigated fully.

We needed a place to host drinks for our family and friends ahead of our move to Spain and I was really struggling to find a location I was confident could deliver on good music, drinks and atmosphere without charging big £££ for an area. I ended up booking Apples & Pears without visiting it, based purely on the amazing reviews I had read. We didn't regret it and had a great night in the downstairs area. The bar staff are friendly, the drinks and great and the music was spot on. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-08-25

Staff were great at the bar (white wine offerings were not great though). When making a reservation I requested for an outside table if possible and was told it was fully booked, and possible a table may become free on the day. Turn up and found out it was booked exclusively, which was misleading. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-06-16

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. We don't offer the garden area for exclusive use - this is written on our website. Only the tables in the garden and lounge bar were reserved for that evening by different parties but guests were still welcome to go into the garden area. When you requested to be seated outside, we did make you aware via email that we only had a table available in the lounge bar and this was mentioned again on your arrival.

Venue is great. Hosted my engagement party here and all the staff were really helpful. Reggie and Kim who hosted us were easy to work with from start to finish. And Kim made sure the night ran without any problems. Since it was one of the hottest days (17th June) it was great to have a venue with working AC :). The bar staff were awesome with the drinks and if you are hiring out the basement bar like I did then you won't be disappointed. You can also play your own music or have whatever the DJ Is playing upstairs. Great bar, great hosts and great drink!! Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-06-17

The happy hour cocktails were very small. You had to order two in order to have the size of a normal cocktail. The majority of the cocktails were nice (the classic ones). I didn't like one of the cocktails I ordered so I told the barman. His response was that it is the policy of the place not to replace the cocktails in case the customer doesn't like it. I was very surprised. His response was: "When you go to a restaurant and you don't like the food, do they bring you something else". The response is "Yes" when it is a nice restaurant. We ordered pizzas. The pizzas that got delivered there were very nice. I was surprised that the bar didnt have any plates for us. Overall I had a nice evening but I think there are some things that can be improved. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-01-13

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. However, we have to address a couple of points you made. The cocktail specials are the same quantity as all our cocktails as they have double measures so it's not true that they are small. In regards to the comment you said was made by the bartender, that's not our policy so our apologises if you were told this, this will be investigated. Finally, the pizzas that were ordered were provided from an external caterers and not ourselves.

Apples and pears was enjoyable and the cocktails were great however, the area that turns into the dance floor needs to be better monitored. I reserved a table with my partner until the end of the night and by 12 pm,a group arrived who proceeded to throw their coats on the table where we were sitting, knocking over our drinks and began to get aggressive with us. Not one member of staff was around to help and it spoiled the night for us. Visited Apples and Pears on 2017-01-13

Reply from Apples and Pears

Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear your evening was spoilt by this. This wasn't brought to our attention on the night; if so, it would have been dealt with immediately as your table was near to the bar where staff and one of the owners is always present, plus, a member of security monitors the dance area. We will of course take on board your comment to ensure it doesn’t happen again.

I came here with my partner and was first impressed by the warm welcome we received upon our arrival from all staff. The bar staff were very knowledgeable about the drinks on offer in their extensive menu and even gave recommendations on what drinks would best suit my taste. I would say that the customer service was what you would expect in America. The evening got better and better with the DJ who who rocking out the best of R&B, I could have been at MOS. And to top it off, we met and got chatting with Reggie who is just a legend here at Apples and Pears. Well done team. I'll be coming again for sure.

Just wanted to say that Apple and Pears were absolutely fantastic on the Saturday just gone (10/12/16). Kim was fantastic in staying in contact with myself for all little needs for the party. Had a party of 35 people for our annual Christmas get together, and all very well accommodated. Cocktails were absolutely fantastic. Bar staff were brilliant. Was able to hook up iPad for our own music. Thanks to Reggie for the shot at the end of the night. Much appreciated. I would recommend anyone books a party at this venue. Nothing is too much.

Good communications prior to our group visit, we were able to reserve a large table, and then get back the deposit cost later. Good cocktails, friendly staff,, skilled DJ playing tunes for everyone. It's a tiny place which means at times it's hard to find a space away from those over-drunk customers dancing on the tables! Strangely I felt quite cold as they'd left door to outside smoking area open all night. Overall a friendly easy-going place next to tube with free entry. Visited Apples and Pears on 2016-10-22

Had my birthday celebration in a newly refurbished area of Apples & Pears downstairs - what an excellent venue for this! Space couldn't be more perfect: we had a great seating / standing area that was away from anyone else and fit about 30 of us with no problem, and pretty much an access to the bar to ourselves. Bartenders and staff in general was very helpful and made us feel welcome. DJ played an excellent mix of new and old school tunes. Couldn't have been more perfect, and considering a hassle - free booking & small deposit it's just perfect.

I arranged leaving drinks at this bar last Friday and had such an amaaaaazing time. I hadn't been before and just found it on DMN and what a find! Outside it looks unassuming but inside its decor it so kl i, it has a relaxed vibe and the staff are friendly. Me and my friends enjoyed the yummy cocktails and danced the night away till 2am.

What a brilliant little find!! I reserved an area at Apples & Pear Bar for my Birthday drinks last Friday night (for 18 friends) and we had such a great time. The DJ and music was superb - we danced from 8pm to 1am when they had to close the doors. The staff and service here was excellent and the cocktails were delicious. Kim who took my booking was really efficient and friendly, and then on arrival Reggie was lovely and welcoming. I couldn't even believe they gave me back £2.50 remaining on my deposit as we hadn't spent it (of which I had to put in their tip jar). I would definitely go back here and will spread the word too.

Apples and Pears bar is a great venue to hold a party for up to 70 people - it was a really hot day but nicely cool in the basement, the sound system was great and everyone I dealt with - Kim, Reggie, security and bar staff were all friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this bar - its location is convenient and in a city where minimum spends can be a bit steep, it is affordable. The cocktails were fantastic too!

We hosted a party at Apples & Pears to celebrate our blogs 5th birthday! From the initial enquiry through to the night itself the team were so accommodating and made sure everything went smoothly for us.

Celebrated my birthday on Sat 12 March - we booked 8 weeks ago and got the last area with room for 15 people. Booking was simple and they were very helpful. We paid a £25 deposit which was then used towards drinks on the night. Amazing music, staff and bar men were very friendly, cocktails were yum and unique. The space is small and intimate with enough space for some serious moves on the dancefloor - perfect for our little group. We danced for 4 solid hours and all couldn't believe that it was 2am already when we had to leave. Definitely recommended!! Best night out in London. Visited Apples and Pears on 2016-03-12

I recently celebrated my birthday there with 30 extraordinary people! Apples and pears made us feel very welcome! Great staff, music and most important cocktails! Will come back very soon and try the chilli cocktail which is apparently a killer! Visited Apples and Pears on 2016-03-05

Booked the downstairs for my retirement bash, great atmosphere. The whole booking process was made easy by Kim who kept in touch and answered all my questions and emails promptly. On the night Reggie was there and he and the other staff introduced themselves and made us all feel very welcome. The atmosphere and ambience was welcoming all round, friendly staff, varied music catering for all age groups - and not forgetting the door staff who were also very helpful. I would absolutely recommend this venue and look forward to going back there again. (There was a bit of a mix up with food ordering, but it was all worked out swiftly with no fuss) It's not about the mistakes, it's about how they're dealt with and they did great.

I booked the basement bar for our Company Christmas party, and I'm so glad I did. The events manager was lovely, very efficient and helpful with suggestions for catering and DJ. The venue was flexible & accommodating, letting me decorate. The Staff were great and well briefed on all requests when I arrived. Music was great, security was not too over the top. Great night had by all! Visited Apples and Pears on 2015-12-03

Great staff, great cocktails, Happy hour is a real bonus on a Saturday night! Old school music was really fun. I would highly recommend! Great smoking area too if that's what you need! Visited Apples and Pears on 2015-11-21

Booked a table for my birthday and had an absolute blast! I only wanted to stay for some cocktails and catch up with friends, however Friday night turned out to have some amazing old school tunes and we ended up staying till 1-2 am dancing away! Our table was really close to the bar, which was really convenient, the bar tenders were extremely nice and the drinks were top notch! Would definitely go back! :) Visited Apples and Pears on 2015-10-02

Had a great night for my birthday, very friendly staff and great tunes/drinks! Just wished they could have extended happy hour a little longer.... on second thoughts it was probably better they didn't

I booked A&up for my birthday and was really impressed by the friendly service. They reserved a spot by the bar and were really understanding when we arrived a little bit late. The evening was great; a fun atmosphere, great cocktails and really nice staff. The DJ is a legend and everyone had a really, really good time. It made my whole night a great way to celebrate and I can't thank them enough! A real gem in East London.

I had my 40th birthday party at Apples and Pears last Saturday and it couldn't have gone any better. The staff were lovely, the tunes were bangin' and the atmosphere super friendly. Plus the cocktails were delicious. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a laid back, unpretentious and super fun night out!

I hired an area in the bar for my 30th birthday and had the best night! I was able to catch up with my pals when we first arrived over some delicious cocktails and then when the Dj started we danced all night. The music was awesome, such a friendly vibe and all the staff were incredibly helpful. Thanks to Reggie and Kim for being so accommodating. Can't recommend this place enough, it's a little hidden gem :-)

I hired Apples and Appears for my birthday, and... it was a brilliant night. I felt totally looked after by Reggie, on the night - the cocktails were great, and the birthday menus they came up with (unprompted!) were a nice touch. Kim was lovely (and extremely patient) throughout the booking process...

I chose this place for a small birthday do off the back of reading positive reviews on various websites and I'm pleased to add another positive review to the pile as well. Organising and communications with Kim were great and straightforward. I put down £25 to reserve an area for a Saturday night which I was told would either be refunded to me or used for bar spend (it was always going to be the latter wasn't it?!) Getting there is very straightforward from Aldgate/Aldgate East stations. The venue is quite intimate but this adds to its quality. The bar staff were very attentive and courteous (such a refreshing thing to see in London!) and particular thanks goes out to Reggie (I hope I've got the name right!) who was well, simply amazing. Always acknowledging me coupled with great bar service and the icing on the cake, a free shot! Just an all round top notch chap! I'm not usually one to shout about the DJs in bars, but the DJ on the night was simply epic. His choice of tracks and his mixing throughout the night was fantastic. He kept the crowd on their feet at all times and it's not often I see a DJ achieve that. I've never heard mixing like it. He wheeled out some real classics (with some hints of cheese as well - Haddaway and Ace of Base to name but two but these were perfectly intertwined with old school hip hop). Anyone who can mix all of that deserves a gold medal! There was a good mix of people in the bar and no hint of pretentiousness whatsoever. A really bouncing atmosphere. Good music, great staff, cool venue. I will definitely head back there again!

Absolutely brilliant atmosphere, great music and the most incredible service. We were guessing it was the owner who came over as we left and thanked us for coming and shook our hands which is such a nice personal touch. Not to mention the cocktails were incredible and so individual compared to most cocktail places! Wouldn't recommend enough.

Had a great night at apples and pears yesterday. The music was good (90s rnb, pop etc) with a small area to dance in. The staff were great especially Carlos who couldn't do enough to make sure we enjoyed our night

Great night, reserved a few tables for a birthday and had a great time, loved the music and the cocktails. However the canapés we ordered we're seriously underwhelming, definitely would not recommend pre-ordering food.

I wouldn't describe this place as hidden but it was nice. We sat outside and enjoyed the happy hour cocktails on a Friday. Staff were friendly and even made us a drink on request. Would pop in again if I'm in the area.

This is a great little gem hidden at the end of Brick Lane. Very friendly staff and the bar tender is really passionate about his flavour matching, with spot on cocktail knowledge so can whip you up pretty much anything you fancy. Nice little escape spot in the garden removing you from the hustle and bustle of Brick Lane. Would recommended for chilled drinks mid week and cocktail enthusiasts!

I went to Apples and pears on a friend's recommendation for where to go for cocktails near the city. We were just looking to take clients out and show them a nice bar with nice drinks in a great atmosphere. This place had all that. Fortunately it was sunny so we sat outside in the cocktail garden and once the wind picked up moved in to the main bar. There was a DJ playing really cool tunes so we chilled on the couches in the back and it was perfect for us. It's nice knowing we have this place bc so many of the city bars can be stuffy! Totally recommend for client drinks and chilling and if you get tossed, you can even dance! It's pretty much got everything.

<p>Delicious cocktails at affordable prices rustled up by savvy bar tender. Felt a little empty on a friday night however the cold weather might have had something to do with it!</p>

<p>The bar itself is really nice and cosy. They have a lot of great cocktails really affordable, especially during happy hour!! However the bar was nearly empy on a friday night, quite unusual for Brick Lane !! The bar is really cool especially if you're looking for a place to chill out with friends before heading to the clubs!!</p>

<p>Stumbled upon this bar after a curry on brick lane and it was just what we were looking for. No hecticness to get in, friendly bar tenders who make our cocktails quickly and cleverly and it just had a cool vibe that you dont really find around this area. Will be back!</p>
