About the Pub

Converted warehouse, which later served as the Brick Lane Music Hall. Very spacious square interior, dominated by a big square 100% island bar. Distressed plasterboard ceiling, big suspended lights made from gramophone trumpets. A mixture of bare brick and distressed walls with huge clear front windows. Raised area up one step along the front, raised and railed dining area on the left, dance floor on the right, small stage at back. Popular, not easily filled, relaxed atmosphere, a trendyish element but not exclusively, aged 30s and 40s, some ethnic mix, female-friendly. Keg Brooklyn Lager, London Fields Hackney Hopster, Murphy and standard lagers. Bottled beers include Brooklyn Lager, Dixie, Duvel, Fordham Route One IPA, Innis & Gunn, Kona Big Wave and Longboard, Vedett Blonde and White. Eight wines by the glass. Cocktails and spirits, including lots of bourbons. Opened in 2005 as Hell, renamed the same year as Bar Music Hall (the only UK pub owned by Belgian brewer Duvel-Moortgat), closed early 2010s. Reopened May 2014 as the second Blues Kitchen.
