Translate Bar


Translate is a fun cocktail bar situated in the middle of Shoreditch. There is a definite industrial / warehouse vibe to the space, with exposed brick walls and a shabby chic feel once you get inside. The main thing at Translate is the super-friendly atmosphere, co-operative vibe and old school, fun music - expect 90's and 00's pop at the weekends, mixed with the best of the last 60 years! 

Translate offers a large and varied selection of drinks; specialising in cocktails - with some house classics certainly worth a try. Happy Hour is an absolute must, from 4 until 9pm every day! And there's a lager called Happiness... Have you ever had a pint of Happiness before?

Birthdays are a big deal for these guys - and any birthday booking gets the full on 'Birthday Treatment', which cannot be divulged in public! As long as you like being spoilt on your big day...then definitely bring all your friends to Translate!

During the week there is a really welcoming, candle-lit vibe, getting really busy late on, and at the weekend, this place can get jumping so don't expect a quiet Friday or Saturday night, especially when the Whitney tracks come on!

If you like straight up, real fun and a good laugh for your nights out, with a nice crowd and classic sound track...make sure you book in with us!

Translate Bar - London Bar Review

Translate Bar - London Bar Review

There's bars where you can start the party, bars to continue the party, or bars to end the party, but if you’re really lucky, you've found a place where you can do all three. If you're a fan of those raucous nights out, Translate Bar should ring a bell. After all, it's Shoreditch…
