When is a corner shop not a corner shop? When it's a bar

When is a corner shop not a corner shop? When it is actually a trendy East London bar...

That's right, Shoreditch has come along again and thrown a curve ball - taking the name of one thing and adding it to another. So, to stop you getting overly confused - let me explain exactly what you'll find here, and why it is worth your while going...

The Cornershop is a real events place - a bar that across two floors hosts all kinds of music and comedy events. You can find open mic sessions, acoustic nights and across the week, with the weekend becoming the domain of the dj - the bar becoming a spacious dancefloor. Both floors host dj's playing cool to chart music, with special guest dj's taking up the basement space every week.

With all this entertainment on offer, it could lead to you getting a bit of a hunger on - so lucky for you, the upstairs room also hosts a menu full of pub grub staples with a bit of a twist. Sure, you can find burgers, pizzas and all of these typical eats, but fish finger sandwiches and porterhouse steaks will surely get you salivating enough to not be able to resist temptation. Wash them down with a lager, ale or even cocktail, and you have all you need for a great night out in the Shoreditch area - you may even be tempted to join in with the open mic...
