A diminutive, fairly new addition to the Hoxton scene, the Old Shoreditch Railway Station is a café/bar unsurprisingly set in the original Shoreditch railway station building. Its a tiny place and until recently there was seating for as little as 20 or so people, but they've now expanded into the shop next door increasing capacity by 100%. Even so, it can get rather crowded later in the evening, but if you're able to get a seat and space on one of the great 1950s coffee tables to rest your drink, there's a very comfortable and unrushed atmosphere. The choice of drink isn't spectacular, focusing mainly on spirits (although there is a small band of premium lagers), but on the whole we rather warmed to the place. With many try-too-hard, perpendicular anodyne bars around (i.e.: Jam), for us, The Old Shoreditch Station provided a refreshing antidote. Oh and if you're a railway enthused Hoxtonite, you can see (en route to the toilet) the original staircase leading up to a non-existent platform for a train station long since gone.
