The Lounge at John Salt


A collaboration between Young's and London's hottest new brewery; Two Tribes.

Located on Islington's bustling Upper Street, The Lounge at the John Salt is the perfect venue for laid back daytime vibes. Serving cracking brunch dishes as well their delicious Burger Shack menu from 12pm everyday, The Lounge at the John Salt is the go-to lunch spot on Upper Street. With its relaxed atmosphere, it's a great bar to work from for those who are looking to escape the home office set-up. Looking to host a meeting? Check out their private hire space; the Mezzanine. When night falls, the bar transforms into a discotheque, with the bar team mixing bespoke cocktails that'll guarantee to get you up on the dance floor!

The street-side seating provides the ideal setting for an after-work pint of Two Tribes Dream Factory. Plus their sheltered secret garden is a great spot to wrap up with a glass of red over the chillier months.

Catch the Six Nations at The Lounge at the John Salt this season; with food and drink packages available to pre-order, this is a top choice.
