Enjoy a drink on London's best rooftops
When this week’s latest indie-pop outfit gets a bit too much, escape upstairs to the terrace up top. The Macbeth may be more synonymous with the sweaty swagger of bands but on the roof there’s a way out – of you can handle the smoke.

Avoid this place if you're thirsty.

Great for music. Terrible for a good bar experience. If you think arrogant, customer-is-wrong attitude is fun then go for it. I'll be back for the music but will NEVER use this bar again.

You've been warned!

This comment has an official response:

Hi there, are you the couple who had an issue with the frozen marguerita? If so I do apologise for the mix up you guys had and the response the gentleman who served you and the lady supervisior gave you. Bar work and public service can be stressfull at times and sometime people aren't at there best, however they should always try and stay professional, but also if you are the guys I'm thinking off I personally came and offered you a replacement drink and you said you'd be happy with a couple of shots of jack Daniels, and you seemed satisfied at that point no? If you still feel short changed please feel welcome to come back and I will sort you a couple of drinks on the house to apologise.

You cannot fault the Macbeth for the sheer range of music it offers. The venue is damn prolific. Come at the weekend and you're as likely to find an indie night as a trap/hip-hop party. Pitch up during the week and you're likely to see an up-and-coming band for peanuts.

Love this place, plus the roof terrace is great for summer drinks and there is a second floor bar where you can escape the noise of the ground floor gig venue/club.

Why haven't I been here before? It's obvious that this funny old boozer was never meant to host the trendy music and the fun crowd that queues for entry - but somehow it works. There's a roof terrace as well as a lounge and a lot of building work seems to be going on at the moment. The word was that the loos (pretty awful) were being improved to be as good as the rest of this great place. I was told that a lot of the young and famous appear but there was no-one I recognised when I was there. I like the sound of some of the other nights they have but don't everyone rush here though as I don't want to be on the end of the queue and miss the party.

Wow, what a find, just a short walk from Hoxton Square, I thought i was walking into a normal pub but had the best night out ever. There was an amazing band playing on the night I went, and for a change the trendy crowd were really friendly and everyone seemed to be out to have a good time and a dance to the band and dj's. If you want a break from the music there is a little cosy lounge to relax in upstairs. One other thing I noticed was how nice the bar staff were and the door price was more than reasonable.
