Shoreditch Grind


Welcome to the original Grind - coffee hangout by day and cocktail joint by night. What used to be a mobile phone shop is now this round-as-a-pound bar right on Old Street roundabout. The stairs behind the bar lead up to the recording studio where some pretty cool bands have laid down tracks, so keep your eyes peeled for groupies. The whitewashed brickwork, neon sign and cool staff make this a pretty hip hangout, plus it’s the perfect place to get your daily caffeine kick, or pastry fix before jumping on the tube/bus/bike/pogo stick.

Take a seat at one of the stools facing out and watch what seems like most of East London pass you by, day or night. The cocktail list is kickass, and our Grind Espresso Martini certainly had us pumped for the evening. Small plates are the ideal accompaniment (fish fingers? Yeah boy!), but there are also a few bigger dishes if you've got a hunger on. 

There's also beers,  a small wine list and Prosecco should you want something more laid back. They stay open til 1am Friday & Saturday, so you can stick around a little longer and get a little wilder. There is also a wicked terrace just outside under the big tree, surprisingly romantic for somewhere so public.
