The Pen & Pencil

Description

Taking its name and inspiration from the infamous mid-20th Century bar on East 45th Street in New York, which was popular with newspaper journalists and ad men – the original ‘Mad Men’, The Pen and Pencil offers the perfect place for the NQ’s creative locals to chill, think, meet and enjoy great food and drink.

Open seven days a week, The Pen and Pencil is open from 10am right through ’til late with a focus on a strong day time offering with great brunch, subs and burgers, washed down with top quality coffee and freshly blended smoothies.

Looking for a late night party? The bar's team of resident DJs are on hand on Friday and Saturday nights to get the party started every weekend. There is also a fantastic selection of beers, wines and spirits along with their own bespoke cocktail list. Plus the venue offers private hire for networking meetings, private parties and launch events.
