What they say:
The red and gold J. R. Brewer sign is as much a part of Dalston's local history as the iconic Rio Cinema on Kingsland High Street. Originally a local butchers, 77 Shacklewell Lane has housed a number of intriguing venture. Now a rustic watering-hole, the team behind Brewer's Bar embrace the spot's history with open arms. Deciding to keep the shop's original sign, marble butcher counters and period ironwork, they offer Daltson's revellers a range of ice-cold, locally sauced craft beers and a delightful menu of Spanish dishes and bar treats. Completing the experience, support for local businesses is high on their mission statement; their team of mixologists will be using the locally sources 58 Gin and Square Root Soda to bring their intriguing creations to life.
What we say:
London is blessed with a diverse, rich history, and nothing is more pleasing than a venue that perfectly balances tradition with contemporary urban life. Enter Brewer's Bar. This cosy spot is steeped in history and refuses to forget its illustrious past. It was always going to be a success by serving ice-cold craft beers and locally-sourced spirit infusions, but the outlook of this venue adds something a little more endearing. With original features framing Brewer's Bar, the team have refurbished the entire venue, bringing in rustic church pews, machinists' chairs and lining the walls in beautiful, salvaged Victorian bath tiles. Characterful by nature, the bar will certainly leave an impression on anyone that wonders through their Victorian doorway.
