We Say

The Setting

The setting is perfect for having a romantic meal with your loved one or having an intimate catch up with your close ones. Its decoration matches its location in the trendy Shoreditch area. The small pub is famous for its collection of Japanese Whiskies as well as from all around the World which makes it a really cool place to visit for all whisky lovers.

The Atmosphere

The ambience of the restaurant is very cozy and comfortable: being such a small venue probably helps but we love it! The bare brick layout, dark room, dimmed lights and bull’s head gives this place a very old fashion feel. Its quirky location is something to mention as it is under a railway bridge giving this bar a mysterious and edgy side. It is definitely worth checking out if you like whisky and are in the area.

The Drinks

Their menu is constituted of some of the finest whiskies… A great way to start learning a bit more about this iconic spirit’s history and taste a few different ones. For their cocktails, we recommend asking the waiters – they change their menu regularly but their selection is always amazing!

“WHETHER YOU WANT DINNER, NIBBLES, PRE OR POST-DINNER DRINKS THIS BAR IN SHOREDITCH WILL NEVER CEASE TO AMAZE YOU!”

They Say

“Nestled behind a Dickensian pub frontage opposite the iconic Tea Building in Shoreditch, Bull in A China Shop is a contemporary Asian-inspired all-day restaurant and specialist whisky bar.”

Our extensive whisky selection boasts over 100 select Japanese and Scotch whiskies to be enjoyed as a cocktail, or neat in a highball of hand carved ice.

The 5£ 1/4 chicken lunch deal is one of the best in the neighbourhood
