Does anyone know if this place is still open? I went there on a sunday afternoon and it was all closed.

Don't go here for the beer. The bar staff can barely manage to pour a G&T without f**king up the order in some way. Shame about the staff in general, too cool for school AND they're not even that good looking anyway.

A gay bar that is not a gay bar - and generally doesn't attract the scene queens. When I take newcomers there they don't believe it is a gay bar at first - which is nice. Not a muscle mary in a tight T-shirt to be seen.

The bar staff are a tad disorganised, or stoned, or just reluctant to be customer-facing. Real ale is rarely on. The toilets would disgrace a rock festival on day three. The outside of the building is so decrepit it will soon fall down.

The music is often 70s and played on vinyl and rather good. Men are usually improved by growing a beard and there are always quite a few bearded men here. I like this place a lot.

Maybe the point at which the concept of "Hoxton" was taken too far. Still contains lost of the prime features of this area - the fins, a scrappy DJ table taking up far too much room in a tiny space, toilets of shocking dirtiness, cooler than thou bar staff and ironic wall hangings. The Bricklayers did it all better in 1993 and this place is in no danger of knocking the Foundry off its perch quality wise. It's as if Nathan Barley never happened.

What a DUMP!! I was there on 16/11/08 as a friend was DJ'ing and am happy to say i'll never go again. I always forget how utterly awful the place is! The staff would rather not be there and don't want to serve you. When you finally get served they get your drink wrong! I thought a double vodka, lime and soda was fairly straight forward! I bought a round of drinks and got ripped off!! 2 double vodka lime and sodas a double vodka and coke and a double gin and lemonade (which got soda instead) �28!?! Should have been �18. Then you speak to a person who is supposed to be in charge who looks like something out of 28days who more or less says "so!" Don't waste your time or money there.
