Out of Hours

There’s a Mojito with your name on it.

Run! Run like the wind!

So many choices, too little time…

It’s 4.30pm on Thursday (aka the new Friday) and the office is buzzing with talk of after work drinks… but where to? Will the roof top at the Culpeper have space? Should you pop next door to the Leman St Tavern (again), treat yourself at Som Saa or sneak off for a cocktail at the Discount Suit Company?

It’s all too much, you’re going to need a list

The Culpeper

With a wonderfully renovated pub, a buzzing roof garden and a more formal kitchen serving fresh, simple food full of flavour, it’s pretty difficult to fault The Culpeper.

Luckily it’s just a hop skip and a jump away on Commercial Road. Phew!

The Culpeper


SMAKA is a hidden gem just metres from Aldgate Tower on Alie Street. Preparing healthy meals in-house from the freshest ingredients, this slick Scandinavian joint serves hearty breakfasts, leisurely lunches and tasty food to take away. Get the eggs!


Leman Street Tavern

Not exactly the worst venue to claim as your local, the ‘LST’ is a slick city tavern serving up a fine selection of wine, ales and fresh food to a post-work crowd. Swing by for the scotch eggs or a spot of life drawing… well this is East London after all!
