What the press say...

Evening Standard

"Eccentric doesn't quite seem to cover it. Enter the surreal world of Callooh Callay..."

The 50 Best Bars in London


Time Out

"Tipples at this long established Shoreditch bar are the real deal..." ****



"The London bar scene is more playful and whimsical. Amazing bars to us are Callooh Callay, Artesian and Trailer Hapiness..."


Design my night

Callooh Callay is an absolute must. With a very cool atmosphere, tasty bar snacks and quite simply some of the best cocktails you’re likely to drink anywhere in ShoreditcH.
