Our drinks we ordered at Nightjar were very impressive! They also tasted great and had a good kick! The jazz pianist we listened to was very talented and could play anywhere in New Orleans with ease!

When my girl and me visited the nightjar, Caroline and Fred were playing a great set of jazz music. In a cozy cellar you get tasty cocktails in a fancy manner listening to some chilling jazz. Will go again!

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
