*<drink name="The Mahogany Bar" alt="" address="Wilton's Music Hall, Graces Alley off Ensign St, E1 8JB." directions="tube: Aldate East or Tower Hill, 5 min-walk from St Katharine's Dock" phone="+44 020 7702 2789" url="http://www.wiltons.org.uk/" hours="5pm - 11pm, Monday to Friday" price="" lat="" long="">The Mahogany Bar was built around 1725 and has always been a public house, trading under many names over the years including The Albion Saloon and The Prince of Denmark. In 1828 it was luxuriously and elaborately refurbished with a magnificent mahogany bar and fittings which was unprecedented for a pub interior at that time and arguably set the look for the iconic Victorian pub we know and love today. Sadly, the famous fixtures and fittings of this remarkable bar have been stripped away over the years but the atmosphere lingers on. This is the charming bar inside the dilapidated Wilton's music Hall. Visit on a Monday for free live music from 8pm.</drink>

*'''The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town''' ''The Breakfast Club, 12-16 Artillery Lane, London, E1 7LS'' Perhaps London's worst kept secret, this bar can be found hidden behind the fridge of the Shoreditch Breakfast Club restaurant, and features a fun kitschy interior and an intimate atmosphere. Monday-Thursday 5pm-12 midnight, Friday 3pm-12 midnight, Saturday 12 noon-12 midnight, Sunday, 12 noon-10:30pm. Typical price is £9-£10 for a cocktail.

*'''Zigfrid Von Underbelly''' ''11 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NU'' Uniquely decorated and always lively, the Zigfrid is one of the most popular bars in Hoxton Square, a major drinking destination for those looking for offbeat bars and a great atmosphere. Monday-Thursday 12 noon - 1am, Friday-Saturday 12 noon-3am, Sunday 12 noon-12 midnight. Typical Price: £7.90-£9.50 for a cocktail, £4.10-£5.70 for a pint.

*'''Alternative London Pub Tour''' ''Unit 5, The Yard, Yorkton St E2 8NH'' If you are only in London or the East End for a short time, you might want to take advantage of some local knowledge. Alternative London started the first graffiti/street art tours in the East End and have now added in a Craft Beer Pub tour, which they again add they local knowledge and flare to. This is a good way to find some great Pubs and beers around Bricklane and Spitalfields. Price: £25.00 which includes the tour and 4 drinks.

* <drink name="Anda Da Bridge" alt="" address="42-44 Kingsland Rd" directions="" phone="+44 20 7739 3863" email="" fax="" url="" hours="Normal pub hours" price="">At mere spitting distance from ''Jaguar Shoes'' and ''Catch'' lies this restaurant/bar/cafe. This place could not be more different from the other two, whereas they are usually bursting at the seams, this place is buzzing, but not packed. It is a Jamaican bar, so this is reflected in the decor of the place. The music policy is a mixture of old skool hip-hop, soul, jazz. The place is very friendly, the bar staff seemed to be enjoying themselves, and they serve beer (Red Stripe, of course) on draught. More like somewhere you'd expect to stumble across in Brixton.</drink>

* <drink name="Bar Kick" alt="" address="126-127 Shoreditch High St" directions="" phone="+44 871 332 2959" email="" fax="" url="" hours="Normal pub hours" price="">A two floor bar with plenty of table football machines to thrash away at. If you can not get a table the bar has a few sofas to wait for your turn in the quirky surroundings. It is a friendly place, where there is a mix of trendy boys and girls and suits from the city.</drink>

* <drink name="Catch" alt="" address="22 Kingsland Rd" directions="" phone="+44 20 7729 6097" email="" fax="" url="" hours="M-Th normal pub hours, F-Sa until 2AM" price="">A slightly shabby but friendly bar on the small strip of bars on Kingsland Road. Downstairs they have limited seating and draught beer, but upstairs is where it is happening. In the week you can catch live bands and on the weekends there's DJs playing xfm music mixed with a bit of cheese. It is also free to get in. Bargain.</drink>

* <drink name="The Masque Haunt" alt="" address="168–172 Old St" directions="" phone="+44 20 7251 4195" url="http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/pubfinder/details.php?OutletNumber=410" hours="M–Sa 09:00–23:30, Su 09:00–23:00" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">If you are into pubs and pub food, and especially the J.D. Wetherspoon concept, this is a very good spot. It is priced a notch under its more central sister pubs. The extensive menu consists of a good selection of general healthier pub food (pastas, salads, vegetarian burger, etc), but also traditional food like potato & mash, fish & chips. For a good deal, go for the 2 for 1 at £6.99. Also, check out either the Sunday club (roast), Steak club (tuesday), and Curry club (thursday) for a nice treat - as of 2006.</drink>

Although they do not have any big name comedians, there's a few lesser knowns that are worth catching before they make it on to TV. Wednesday is an open mic night, this can be excrutiating or hilarious, depending on your luck.</drink>

* <drink name="Herbal" alt="" address="10-14 Kingsland Rd" directions="" phone="+44 20 7613 4462" email="" fax="" url="http://www.herbaluk.com/" hours="Tu-Th, Su 21:00-02:00, F Sa 21:00-03:00 (times may vary according to night, check with the club)" price="Entry prices can vary from free to over £10 but most nights are much cheaper if you arrive before 22:30">A two floor club that currently hosts residencies from some big artists and labels such as Hospital Records, Grooverider's Grace,  Shy FX's Digital Soundboy, Jazzie B's Soul II Soul, Liverpool's Chibuku Shake Shake, Goldie's Metalheadz, and Kila Kela's Spit Kingdom. Downstairs is an open dancefloor, but upstairs is more of a stylish bar and there is a lovely roof terrace perfect for cooling down after breaking a sweat in the club. Drinks are reasonably priced for the area although it is certainly not cheap! There is no dress code however suits may feel a bit out of place.</drink>
