Nice place to sit outside in the summer. The inside is not up to much, it's too dark and the music is far too loud depsite the fact that it's a fairly sizeable place which would potentially be a nice place to sit. Surely there are better bars in the area.

South African BBQ isn't at the Vibe Bar anymore. They haven't been there in almost a year.
I've spotted them a a few music festivals this summer, which rocked because their food is great. To my surprise, they're selling food in Camden at Stables Market.

Cons:

1. MUSIC - TOO LOUD! Are you kidding me with their line up? Their love affair for dark & gothic music is obviously apparent. I couldn't even hear my friends. It's impossible to have a conversation in that place, hence why it's better to hang outside. I read somewhere that they jack up the volume, so you can buy more drinks = more money for the bar.

2. DIRTY & BLOCKED TOILETS! I mean gross! Trust me, you'll end up using the Vibe's toilets more than once, especially if you plan on drinking. I wish I could control my bladder because I literally have to hold my noise and vomit every time I enter their toilets. They are disgusting.
Advice to owners: Realise that it's time to renovate those toilets if you want classy girls going to your bar. Unless of course you like brining in low class girls who like a gross ambiance - urine on floors, vomit and unflushed toilets.

3. MANAGERS AND BAR STAFF LOOK STONED OR DRUGGED OUT TO THEIR EYE BALLS! It's like stepping into a cheap zombie film set!

4. NOT ENOUGH SEATING IN COURTYARD! - If you're like me, you like to talk and socialise, but how the hell can you if you're in a loud bar?!?! Go outside you may add. Well, sadly, there isn't enough seats since it became a food court similar to a shopping mall.

PROS:

1. PRICES ARE REASONABLY PRICED - Knowing we live in London, prices aren't that bad here. Entry fee wasn't too bad, although not cheap either.

2. FOOD - I must say tasting BBQ in cold nights isn't too shabby. Tasted some of their burgers & they were pukka! It's a plus they have food since after all that drinking, you're going to need some warm food to help you not get too drunk. Odd thing is they had 2 South African BBQ's in a pretty small courtyard. Maybe the owners just <3 South African food - who knows? All I can say is I'm in love with the SA BBQ with the zebra van. Oh, the there was this hot Texan guy serving me. Hot guy + good food = I may end up coming back for food only unless my pals pay me to go.

There's absolutely no better place to hang out on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon than the Vibe Bar's courtyard. They've got this South African BBQ, which is so fantastic. I haven't had a great burger like theirs in London before & London is a huge city! Yeah, the inside of the bar isn't that great (I'm sure you can tell by the comments below), but I must say the South African BBQ guys sure knows how to make up for the atrocious bar.

Check it out on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon though. God Bless!

The Vibe Bar was overpriced with a poor selection of beers 8 years ago. At least they have Peeterman Artois now so I'm not forced to drink 5% stuff. Having said that sitting out in the foyer of the old brewery offices is a unique place in London to have a pint and I only drank here in the old days cos we had an office on the 3rd floor. I returned recently when an old friend joined a company based in the very same building. When they're selling cans of Red Stripe for 3 on Dray Walk next door, the Vibe Bar doesn't seem so bad.
In summary, I prefer the Pride of Spitalfields.
