Matchbox is a new cocktail bar that brings great drinks, street food platters and late-night dancing to its Shoreditch High Street digs.

A big focus of the restaurant will of course be on the art of mixology, but there’s plenty for you here if you’re not too much of a cocktail-drinker. Matchbox will offer a communal atmosphere where friends gather to nibble at street-food platters before having a dance to the DJs that play from 6pm every Friday and Saturday. With 55 inch screens on both of its floors, the bar is also a great place to watch all the live action as this bumper summer of sport gets underway.

My booking was totally ignored and when I showed up the manager had the arrogance to say because the bookings from earlier were still on the tables spending money he'd rather they stayed than give us our (booked for 10 people!) table, so we could sit in the basement but not in the actual bar! Also, toilets were beyond grim, not loo roll, soap, locks on the doors, smelled disgusting, generally pretty vile, and the bar staff poured the wrong drink for me. The music and general atmosphere when we waited for an upstairs table was good, which has earned the 2 stars, but I would not go back here as the attitude of the manager was so bad.

I went there with my friend on Saturday night free entry, the DJ played or the classic RNB tracks. Drinks prices was reasonable So you can have a treat time there are two floors. But the only issue is that it finished at 12am.

Awesome music - the DJ was on point. Great vibe. Not a fan of my drinks in a plastic cup but that's a small price to pay for such a fun evening.

Awesome place, great vibe on a weekend and TVs are perfect to watch sports! Food is great and cocktails taste nice, will go back and will take some friends with me as well!
