What they say:

Common is a bijous sized bar that lies on the bustling Old Street. Common, with its polished wooden tables, soft mint-green walls and glowing candles is the result of several months€™ revamp from its pre-decessor. The upstairs is laiden with tables and chairs as well as the ever-cool open-brick decoration on the wall and stripped back wooden floors. The wonderfully stocked bar sits at the head of the venue, glistening with beautiful and tasty delicacies. Imagine chilling with great drinks, laid-back atmosphere in a shoreditch warehouse-type ambience. 

What we say:

Previously Cocomo, it is great to see this place have a new owner and complete re-vamp. It's a fantastic little space and I'm sure Common will become a great place for laid-back weekend drinks or indeed non-pretentious and not too pricey pre-drinks. Don't expect an interior to blow your mind, like many other new Shoreditch bars, but that isn't why you would go to Common. It is called Common after all!
