Achingly trendy bar at the achingly trendy (i.e. non-curry) end of Brick Lane, adjacent to the Rough Trade shop. Expensive but not hideously so.

I went in yesterday (Monday - 26/09/16), at about 17:45, as my trains from Liverpool Street were cream-crackered. I had a double Laphroaig for £9.95.

There is a small outside area which was full.

I was BY FAR the oldest person there (low 50s), as I'd expected.

Expensive but reasonable. We pop in for lunch reasonably often as it's round the corner from the office. The burgers are very good, if somewhat expensive (but there's not that much other than burgers on the menu, so they ought to be).

Beer expensive, but good selection. Gets very popular at night.

The last time I was in The Big Chill bar I wasn't with the right company thus my experience wasn't anything to write home about, and had some reservations about going back here.

However, Saturday just gone, with a few pals and one of the most enjoyable sets of music (Aldo Vanucci) I have listened/danced to for absolute ages, + brilliantly drunk, my memory of the place is favourable.

We only went for a few quite drinks from early eve', but it was a good 6 hours later before we left having danced and drank our socks off.

Wouldn't go regularly, but with the right pals, right level of drunken shenanigans and a set like the one we heard - a fantastic nights entertainment will be had.

Love this bar, great atmosphere, good music, friendly staff and well prepared drinks.

I go here quite a bit because I work in the same building and can't stand the Vibe Bar!

Evenings early in the week are great to sitr about with a drink and have a chat, Thursday to Sunday are very different - you'll be lucky to get a seat, but there is qality music, but there's no real excuse for the cost of a pint of lager - OUCH!

If you have a problem with the clientel - go elsewhere.
