Ye Old Axe, Shoreditch
05 Apr 2013
As far as strip pubs go, this one is a classic East Ender. It's a fiver to get in, but the beer inside is very well priced and it doesn't feel that seedy actually. The ladies do pester a bit for the pound coins, but they seem friendly enough. The real standout though is the architecture, just check out the doric columns and guilded ceilings... I know I know, you don't go to a strip pub for the architecture. I myself am not the hugest fan of that sort of pub, and like many, didn't last very long as the novelty wore off after an hour or so, but overall, was defo worth the visit for people interested in a real slice of East End history.
