Established in 2000, Catch Bar in the heart of Shoreditch has become one of the area's most important institutions.

Offering consistently fun DJ nights, run by an independent team who champion undiscovered bands and DJs and have seen the likes of Bloc Party and Babyshambles play at this incredible venue.

The downstairs bar serves up a good range of cocktails, beers and wines, and from Thursday to Saturday, with DJs playing anything and everything, creating a party atmosphere and all for free as there is no door fee downstairs.

Upstairs at Catch Bar hosts regular live music and DJ nights where at the weekends it usually becomes a rowdy and rambunctious scene. Catch Bar is an unpretentious, lively DJ bar which brings an intimacy, yet dynamic atmosphere for any party in Shoreditch.

They promised free entry to us while visiting match box. We were 7 of us and told them that a guy that provided with bands told us it was for free. Never again because of their lying.

FLIES IN MY DRINK! If I could I would give a zero star rating as this place is actually a joke... Saturday night out(4.3.17), charged £10 on the door to get in which was not a problem until the following occurred. Went to the bar where there had to have been a fly infestation, because 3 out of 3 drinks that I had re-poured for me had a fly inside the cup. THAT IS DISGUSTING!Eventually I gave up and asked for a refund which turned into me being charged yet again for another drink. Why offer a refund and not actually do it? I was then brought outside with security to speak to a "manager" who did not look me in the eye, kept looking away from me as if I didn't exist, claimed to not understand me (I speak fluent English by the way) and insinuated that I was making a complaint because I was drunk by asking me 'how many drinks have you had?' when I had not had any yet. I am actually appalled by this behaviour and lack of good customer service. This club/bar is disgusting and completely lacks hygeine to contain flies by the bar, especially where people are paying their hard earned money to receive drinks with flies and to top it off not even one apology was given. The manager was not willing to give any kind of refund stating that his card machine does not offer a refund option and if he gives me cash his books/takings will be short at the end of the night and I should just accept 3 free shots as that's the best offer I'm going to get. I then took the free shots which I shared with the people I was with and left . It completely ruined my night! I would NOT recommend going here in fact I strongly advice against it. This place deserves to be shut down until this fly problem is rectified. As for the "manager", just get a new one because this one doesn't have any manners whatsoever!

It was one of my worst experience in London, first time that something like this happened to me in Shoreditch. We went to this bar with some friends, the bar was absolutely empty all the night but they required a 50pounds booking deposit to "secure the reservation" which they said will be fully redeemed in drinks, but it never happened because they charged us. At the end, 30 pounds were remaining from the deposit and they said that they would not give us back the deposit nor give us drinks because the bar closed at midnight. They said that it was our fault, that we "didn't want to consume". We lost 30 pounds, they make money at our expense, the manager was so disrespectful, insulting, not flexible and rude. It was a really bad experience, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Worst bar ever. Went there for a happy hour on a Tuesday with 8 friends. I had to pay £50 deposit in advance to secure the reservation (which they said would be fully redeemed in drinks). The bar was totally empty and when my friends went to the bar to order drinks they charged them. In the end there was still £30 pounds not used from the deposit and they refused to give us back or give us in drinks. We got kicked out the bar and the manager was really really rude with us and with the staff that tried to help us.

Amazing place to chill and relax with your mates. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a fun and chilled night out. The prices weren't too bad and the staff were nice aswell.

Well if you are into Trap Music this is definitely a place to visit on Saturday. But beware you won't get in as a solo person. At least that's what the doorman told me last time when I was there. It's also no entrance fee to pay but it will close early at 2:00 am.

I've been there once and I really liked it. So I wanted to come for the second time but they didn't allow me because of my tracksuit bottoms. I was really disappointed and shocked that such a cool and fun place would have this kind of policy!? You are in the center of Shoredich - place where people can express themselves in variety ways! I think tracksuit bottoms are not a big deal... I would understand if I were drunk or making problems but a trousers oO silly and unacceptable. You have lost not only one customer but also all the majority of people wearing tracksuit (lol sound silly) basically expressing themselves. I just though you are a cool place but you are not... *comment moderated* oO either adapt to the area where you have opened your pub or close down. Not happy and definitely will not recommend.

<p>Always a good time here with Indie DJs commanding the dance floor upstairs and downstairs, good looking people and a guaranteed full house.</p>

<p>This is one of my favourite late night DJ bars in Shoreditch, had countless nights out in shoreditch bar hopping, and then when it comes to the crunch, no one wants to pay to go to one of the big clubs, so good old Catch bar comes up trumps! DJs play trendy crowd pleasers, basically indie-electro, atmosphere is charged and its free! Well done guys.</p>
