What they say:

Looking Glass Cocktail Club are no stranger to cool and quirky, with a secret bar hidden behind a giant mirror, and now the group is opening a sister site in a former iron factory. Iron Bloom has opened on Great Eastern Street and is a three-storey haven of British small plates and music. Open six days a week, the new space is inspired by its industrial past with cast-iron pillars, unpolished wood and exposed brick, and coolest of all, a suspended DJ booth in the industrial lift.

What we say:

Spread across three floors, Iron Bloom is putting a cool spin on casual dining, with DJs, live music, and a mouth-watering menu. Inspired by the British Isles, the menu is a selection of small plates such as Guinea fowl pudding, lobster doughnuts and grilled bavette steak. Over the weekend, there will be brunch dishes including lobster and potato hash, and eggs royale; cocktails come from the connoisseurs at sister site Looking Glass Cocktail Club.
