Located at the end of Brick Lane, just 5 minutes’ walk from Aldgate East tube, Apples & Pears has set a new level of hidden cool in this trendy neighbourhood. This secret gem of a bar serves up fantastic, innovative cocktails that are on par with some of London's most notorious speak easy haunts. With drinks like Mr. Toms Nuts, Snow Lassi, and the Dark Forest Cucumber Club it's only a matter of time before this secret gets out!

The music programme at Apples & Pears is eclectic, lively and always full of East London energy. This bar has two floors to bring you some of the city's most popular DJs spinning records from house, hip hop, disco, funk, rock and even live acoustic sessions from some of the latest rising stars walking amongst us. The crowd varies on the night pending the musical talent, but you can always expect the fun-loving, fashion forward, trendsetting, unpretentious styling’s from the London scene.

Apples & Pears is also perfect for private hire as you can reserve either one or both floors for your event. Food is available and there is an amazing cocktail garden in the back. Apples and Pears is open from Tuesday to Sunday 5pm until late.

The All In London Review

"As they say, Apples and Pears is ‘East London’s hidden cocktail bar’..."

All In London Rating: 7 / 10

Their website says that they are ‘East London’s hidden cocktail bar’ and having never heard of the place before heading here, it would have to be some of the most accurate web blurb we’ve read. Tucked away at the Aldgate end of Brick Lane, Apples and Pears is hidden behind a ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ doorway.

The bar is narrow and cramped at one end with seating always at a premium. However, when the music is as good as it was on this occasion – and the quality of the music here is one of the bar’s ‘things’ - then that doesn’t become a problem. Classic rap, 90’s hip-hop, garage and commercial club tunes form one long mix tape that lasts all night long. One minute it’s KRS-ONE, the next it’s Shanks and Bigfoot. How does this work? Who knows…

Given that the music rules and therefore the dancing follows, it is almost perplexing that this is a fine cocktail bar too. A trip to the bar isn’t quick but what you get at the end of it is well worth the wait. The West Indian Summer – a mix of lime infused gin and Bergamot liqueur – is great, and an off menu Old Fashioned is even brought to the table, such is the time and care taken over muddling.

Come summer, dancers will be relieved to find the small beer garden out back – it gets hot inside! Others will just be pleased to find a little bit of space away from the bad breaking, bopping, bogling and any other dance beginning with B that seems to rule the Apples and Pears dance floor. For once, the blurb on a website is right, this place is ‘East London’s hidden cocktail bar’ and it is such a good time, let’s hope it stays that away.
