Kebab shops might seem like the opposite of a relaxed drinking venue. But bypass the waft of greasy meat and push the door next to the big kebab shop on Great Eastern Street near Old Street and you’ll be more than pleasantly surprised. Descend the stairs and get cosy in the Czech-kitsch 60s lounge, where no suits are allowed. Don’t just rock up though. You’ll need to make an appointment. The only way to get in touch? Call.
