Describing themselves as 'half-bar, half-pub, half-gallery, half-club', The Palantine Bar & Gallery has grand designs which even include bending the laws of mathematics! However, if anyone could achieve such a feat, it would be this Stoke Newington bar with its refreshing approach to nightlife in London as it combines art gallery, live music venue, indoor market and club in one venue.
Don't expect anything too fancy in the way of decor. It's definitely function over fashion in this stripped back joint with its comfy sofas, higgledy-piggledy chairs and mismatched tables. They have, however, created a more atmospheric and spooky space in their basement area with its large mural and tea-lit tables
The main focus for anyone venturing here will be the diverse programme of events put on such as live performances from hardcore bands, bring-your-own-vinyl nights, spoken word performances and electro club nights.
