Dating back to 1877, this street corner bar has had many guises; most recently as Dukes Bar. A major renovation in 2011 changed the space into a striped back warehouse style open space with well-worn wooden floors, subways tiles and stone walls. This watering hole is a great spot for live music or just to have a drink. The gigs are often and plentiful (check out their website for details), with a history of celebrated acts – like The Clash’s stop in 1985, complete with honorary plaque proudly displayed outside. The drinks menu is ever changing with a wide range of local and global offerings, and a friendly and knowledgeable staff only too happy to find you just the right libation. This is also the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink – we’d recommend heading around the corner to The Butchershop Bar & Grill.
