What they say:

The Shoreditch Bar Group bring a flamboyant circus-themed cocktail bar to Old Street for their latest venture. Pitching up at the former Common Bar site, this latest East London drinking den offers a bustling atmosphere, killer cocktails and some big late night DJ beats. Entry is free.

What we say:

The loss of Common Bar was a blow to many a Shoreditch merrymaker, but the arrival of this kooky substitute is a big boost for the area’s booming nightlife scene. Splattered with circus memorabilia, flamboyant wallpapers and Rubix Cube stools, Cirque looks great for catching up over some tasty cocktails and a few nibbles.
