The Book Club

Food, drink, events and everything in between.

The Book Club is a former Victorian warehouse nestled between galleries and coffee shops on a Shoreditch side street. Ideal for coffee in the day, cocktails in the evening and ping pong at any hour; The Book Club is always busy with creatives, coffee lovers and cool East Londoners.   

TBC have an extensive list of unusual cocktails, including the ‘Beetroot’s Manuva’: a curious mix of tequila, beetroot juice, chilli agave, basil and chilli liqueur which brings a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘health kick’. Try their ‘Gin Genie’ a cucumber-y homage to David Bowie. A cucumber, vinegar and sugar cordial is mixed with Hendricks gin, Lanique’s Rose liqueur and soda. Finished with a thin slice of cucumber and plenty of ice, this is a refreshingly tasty gin drink.

The food menu here is worth checking out too. The nachos come with a heavy recommendation and the weekend brunch menu will have you salivating with potato hash and huevous rancheros top of our list of choices.

More exciting than your typical Shoreditch stop off, The Book Club have mosaics, interesting artwork and wall plants dotted about the venue. A mix of seating on the top floor and a downstairs basement that’s used for speed dating, events, exhibitions and bingo – you’re likely to find whatever you’re looking for here.
