The Star by Hackney Downs


Is it a brothel? Is it a fairground ride? No, it's just a pimped out pub. Sitting right by Hackney Downs, this is the place to go party.

The circus style red lights that surround the bar lend it a kinda sexy, seedy sense of what might be coming if you hang around long enough.

To start go get the beers in - they've got Tiger on tap and the bunch of interesting ales should keep the lads and Dads happy. They've got vino, shots and the top shelf ain't too shabby either; Four Roses and Auchentoshan to name a few.

Soak up the night with awesome food from Yeah! Burger, the resident chefs. Order a load of sliders for the table or try the 'Elvis' - aged beef, bacon, peanut butter, jam and fried banana, but don't get too stuffed because the DJ's are on form here and you'll want to dance after.

Oh and that carousel horse is begging to be ridden.
