We Say

The Setting

Located in Shoreditch Boxpark, Boxbar is (or for some was) one of the coolest places to go to for a quick drink with some mates.

The Atmosphere

Boxpark Shoreditch was never going to be exactly the same as its sister in Croydon born in 2011. The area is way ‘too cool’ to just be exactly the same. They had to add a little something to make it extra special and we’d say they nailed that one right on the head! The similarities: food and drinks (of course): both bars are sponsored by Coors Light so obviously the beers are flowing all day, they both include seating areas (different sizes for sure as Shoreditch is a lot smaller than Croydon) and even live music! They’ve got everything they need to get the party started… not that they actually do, but they set people in the right mood and even manage to unconsciously convince everyone to get a drink if they haven’t already or to just get another if they finished their first one. So the only difference we found in Shoreditch is: super cool pop up retail stores! Yes, you’ve heard us: that means you can have some food, drinks and then shop in the cool stores just beneath! They have a great set-up to get people to stay all day. It’s all about setting a good vibe isn’t it? Great job! 

The Drinks

There isn’t that much to say about their drinks: as previously noted they have beers and any spirit you want. No cocktails but we don’t think they really need them. This bar is worth a visit for its cool concept!

“IF YOU’RE IN THE AREA, OR GETTING BACK ON A TRAIN AT SHOREDITCH HIGH ST, MAKE SURE YOU STOP BY BOXPARK FOR A QUICK DRINK. JUST SO THAT YOU CAN SAY YOU’VE BEEN THERE AND DONE THAT.”

It’s not all about the beverages though. Boxbar is so much more than just a bar, keep an eye out for weekly events coming soon with residents spinning tunes to soundtrack your weekend. BOXBAR cements ‘Drink’ and ‘Play’ into the Boxpark motto Eat. Drink. Play.
