Commercial Tavern

Without a doubt, Commerical Tavern is one of the most popular pubs in Shoreditch, thanks to its prime location on the cusp of Spitalfields market and its charming interior. From warm lampshades to rustic angel wings fixed to the walls, it possesses a lovable character that's noticeable as soon as you step foot through its door. The bar boasts a rotating selection of local craft beers as well as a range of wines, spirits and mixers. It's also the ideal spot to hire for a birthday party, with an eclectic cocktail bar upstairs and wide windows ordering views of the streets below.

The Owl and Pussycat

An East London boozer with gastro dining and vintage styled interiors on its side, The Owl and Pussycat is one of the most laid back pubs in Shoreditch. Not only boasting a petite beer garden, made for their selection of London draught beers, it promises affordable meals in a charming environment. 

The Victoria

The Victoria is a traditional local boozer that's also a dab hand at live music. Showcasing some of East London's best up and coming bands, the venue's diverse drinks list and friendly atmosphere makes it a popular choice - no matter what sort of night you're looking for.

Nancy Spains

Sip on the likes of a Barry's Pornstar, made with Irish tea, plus an espresso martini featuring a fusion of smooth, honey whisky and coffee at this stylish haunt on Curtain Road. Nancy Spains is a Prohibition-style pub with the charm of a Shoreditch boozer, offering top tipples and an expansive collection of Irish whiskey. It's a cosy, lively spot to sit back and enjoy live music, DJ sets and even some delicious Dominican grub from resident chefs Boca Chica.
