Luckily the evening was not a complete disaster as we did have some quite delicious food and drinks instead. First up, we went to the Dragon Bar on Shoreditch High Street. I've never been here before although I did used to go to the Dragon Bar which used to be on Leonard Street but this one is a vast improvement. We sat upstairs at street level but there was also a bar downstairs which looks like you might be able to hire it for functions. The staff were very friendly (shock) and the food was delicious. My friend and I shared a Lamb Kofta and the amazing Bert in a Box. I had never heard of a Bert in a box, but we were quite brave and ordered it any old how and I'm super glad we did. It was a Camembert in a Box that had been heated up so it was like a tub of hot liquid cheese. Complete heart attack on a plate but 100% worth it. Dragon bar gets a high 8 blocked arteries out of a possible 10 and I will definitely be going back.
We finished off the night at The Redchurch (also on Redchurch Street) which I haven't been to in ages and it was also lovely. Cocktails are a bit pricey, between £10-£12 each with some having 'POA' next to them which is a bit ridiculous, but a a very nice place to go for a treat. The Redchurch can have 7 Mojitos out of a possible 10.
