Description

Welcome to Strongroom Bar & Kitchen!

For nearly 20 years we have been serving the ever changing faces of Shoreditch in our unique Jamie Reid designed space. As part of the legendary Strongroom recording studios, we have always been a creative and cultural hub and one of the first late night venues to entertain Shoreditch back in the dark days of warehouses, cruising joints and strip bars...

Over the years, Shoreditch has matured and our operation has expanded and grown organically - Our kitchen has become synonymous with awesome burgers and fresh seasonal food. Our expansive beer list features local and international microbreweries. You can still discover new and emerging artists at our live music nights. Our DJ nights are eclectic and focus on 'real', not manufactured or commercial music. A recent extension offers light and airy surrounds for breakfast meetings, coffee mornings and private hire. And did we mention we have possibly the largest outdoor drinking and dining in the area??

Amazing evening! The staff is very nice and the Chief made a delicious buffet for our 25 guests. Hands up for the birthday cake :) If I have to suggest something: the music is not loud enough when you are in the back room and when the dancefloor is be too crowdy. Thanks for everything!

Great staff. Great venue. Booked a table for two with a couple of days notice and on arrival was helped straight away by members of staff. Lovely chilled atmosphere in a cool and clean venue. Will definitely be going back there. visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 07 Jan 2017

Terrible food and more costly then it was worth. Not the most clean place. The seats were sticky and marked my jeans.. However the staff were extremely nice and chatty. I always appreciate that. visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 07 Jan 2017

If you have a moment, please send some more details about what you had to eat so that we can address this with the kitchen - you can email it to bar@strongroom.com. I do also apologise about the chair being sticky - we do a thorough clean of all of our chairs on a regular basis, but unfortunately drinks do get spilled on them occasionally.

I booked an area here to celebrate my birthday and had a great time, as did my friends. Only once I wasn't particularly happy with the service, when the bartender seemed annoyed at me for asking something. Overall, though, very friendly atmosphere. visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 15 Dec 2016

I came down for dinner on Saturday night, and really enjoyed the vibe, the awesome selection of gins, and the atmosphere upstairs. I initially booked because of the great dinner menu, and was really disappointed when I found out it was only the bar menu available that night. We decided to stay however, and try the beef brisket burgers, sweet potato fries, and the chocolate peanut popcorn dessert. Unfortunately the brisket was super tough and unflavoursome. Sweet potato fries were fab though. The dessert was pretty bland too - could barely taste the peanut, and there was no popcorn ice cream left, and the vanilla substitute wasn't anything special. Whilst it wasn't super expensive food, I was really looking forward to it, and it was definitely below average. Shame, as it's a great place!

Reply from The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen

Hi Yaz, I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed. We try to state on most of our bookings sites that we only do the bar menu at the weekends, we did try and get in touch but unfortunately only got to your voicemail. However, having looked at our bookings websites we understand it isn't very clear and we will update this to avoid any more problems in the future. In regards to the food, I have passed on your email to our chef and we will be in touch. We appreciate your feed back, it helps us do better! Cheers, Georgy

Not the best experience. I booked for 14 people and got an email ensuring me that I had booked an area "where 12 people could be seated comfortably". When we got there, there were only two sofas, where not more than 5 people could fit in "comfortably", we grabbed extra chairs and still, not even 7 of us could have a proper seat. Also, when trying to to squeeze all of us, we sat in a small table and the guy from the door came to tell us off, because of sitting on a table...Where else could we do that if no more space was available? As I said, not very happy about it.

Reply from The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen

Hi Marian, I’m very sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your night with us on Friday. We did set out the table so it would seat around 10-12 people but I understand it is a bit of a squeeze and when it gets busy it’s hard for us to keep an eye on anyone else taking those seats! Our tables are quite old which is why we ask for people not to sit on them (we don’t want you to hurt yourself). As a gesture, we would like to make it up to you so email bar@strongroom.com so we can discuss things further. GM

Setting up a tab was painfully slow. The bar is nice but no amount of fairy lights and bunting can make up for a 30 min wait to get a tab set up and drinks in. Laura visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 15 Sep 2016

Hi there, I'm sorry you experienced a delay. Could you send me an email to bar@strongroom.com confirming date and time of your booking so that I can investigate please? Kind Rgds, DF

Great garden, we went on a northern soul night and the Dj was fantastic. It's big and spacious with a few different rooms. Not too many food options but what we had was good dawsonkatherine0309 visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 09 Sep 2016

I celebrated my birthday here and had a wonderful time! :) Booked an outside table for the evening which was beautiful with all the lights and bunting outside. Some of my guests were disappointed that there was only Vegan food available that evening but otherwise great place- thank you!! :) Jessica visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 26 Aug 2016

Great atmosphere, amazing decor, brilliant selection of beers and gins. Fast service too. Made a birthday area booking and was given a great slot. Kitchen was closed but we were allowed to bring our own food! Had a great birthday here. Frances visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 05 Sep 2016

Fab bar for a private party, great food and drinks, and such friendly staff. Beautiful courtyard in the summer, and three indoor bars to move into when it gets a little chillier in the evening.

The dahl was exquisite, portion sizes were satisfying, and overall friendly environment. Only criticism is the air-con wasn't necessary. We had our scarves on! Helpful staff in booking a table.

Hi Kohinoor Thank you for your feedback! We're so pleased you enjoyed the dahl. Noted on the air-con, we won't be turning it on again especially now it's colder.

I'm really glad I booked this place. I hadn't been before but I came across some really positive reviews and it lived up to those reviews. It's a great place with a good selection of beers and wines. The bar staff are really really friendly. We will definitely return! zette visited The Strongroom Bar & Kitchen on 06 Nov 2015

Really neat discovering their pretty sweet beer garden for our Friday night drinks. We booked a spot so got a table, but the weather was fab and it was packed with people standing. Nice, relaxed vibes and in the centre of everything so you can move on to something heavier later on if needs be.
