I didn't see any books, but it had everything else »

There are, as Londoners know, a lot of bars in Shoreditch. A LOT. And most of them are at least half-way decent. So it really takes something special to stand out from the crowd. For me, at least, the Book Club has got it. Small enough to be intimate but big enough to not get boring, the Book Club comprises a homely, chilled out upstairs bar-café and a sleek, industrial-chic downstairs bar-club. With a ceiling of undulating light bulbs, an artfully destroyed wall partitioning the space, and lots of inviting corners to sit and drink in, this is a perfectly done-out space: stylish and interesting but not over the top. It was pretty crowded when I went, but you never had to wait long at the reasonably-priced bar. The crowd is full of East London's beautiful and stylish young things, but it doesn't feel intimidating or unfriendly. The music policy is eclectic, and the place plays host to a variety of nights. If dancing away to electro interspersed with indie and party classics still isn't your thing, come on a week night and play ping pong or snooker. Or during the day for food which an acquaintance assured me was pretty damn good. This place is just win, win, win - the only minor complaint I could make was that at 9pm the music was already far too loud to make conversation easy.
