Two spacious floors of a former Victorian warehouse on Leonard Street have been kitted out for daytime eating, drinking, thinking & meeting. The interior blends the raw, pared-down character of the factory building with layers of bespoke furniture, mosaics and graphic lighting features, as well as the constantly evolving exhibitions that adorn the walls. Its open, airy, drowning in natural light and the perfect environment for meetings, lunches, an afternoon cocktail or a quick game of ping pong!

At night, The Book Club offers a cultural revolution to the East End’s social scene turning the conventional arts institution on its head, fusing boozing with brain power every night of the week through our thought provoking program of Superculture events. At the weekend we step it up a notch with clubs nights from local and national promoters featuring DJs such as Scroobius Pip, Roots Manuva, DJ EZ, Craig Charles and Norman Jay.

Hire this self-contained ping pong room for a number of events - meetings, team away days, arts and crafts workshop or of course, a good game of ping pong! The Ping Pong room is available to hire Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm.

    I used this spot to network with a potential vendor and get some work done. I love the vibe of this place. There's plenty of seating that comfortable. It's also a dynamic space too that has a good mix of play and work which I like. The food is hearty and filling at the right price. This is a great place to meet friend and socialize or get some work done. It depends on what time of the day you show up.

    The vibe was nice, the venue itself is very pretty and the music was good - they also serve food up to a certain time. However, the entry fee on the day we went was £10 and a double vodka coke was £10.50, so the drinks and entry are quite standard for London. My experience with the bouncers was positive at first (although I've seen others reviewing that they were not so lucky). Later in the evening, my friend wasn't let back in even though his wrist was stamped and our girl friends were let back in - there seems to be some kind of selective entry after a certain time. There were some people in the club who were very clearly there to start a fight - kept intentionally bumping in to people and then getting angry, so the place can attract a bit of a weird crowd. Otherwise, the club in itself was pretty cool!

    Very good breakfast (strictly 5!), good menu, nice place & kind service. Also suitable for big groups. The cappuccino was....far from our standard, not tasty, but the gladly gave us a refund with a smile. We find it great attitude & service.

    A group of us arrived at 5.45, ordered pizzas straight away and some drinks. They said the chef wasn’t here yet but he’s coming soon and pizzas “take 5 minutes”. Chef did turn up, but we’ve been waiting about 1 hr 15 since then for pizzas. We enquired and the chef told us that all pizzas were cancelled because the “freezer was having problems”. Turns out they were still trying to make ours with some “funny dough”, we saw a few come out the oven, but nothing arrived at our table. They didn’t tell update us that they were having issues, so we had to speak to a manager. So incredibly poor service which explains the 5 star.
