The Last Days Of DecadenceThis dark and (at least downstairs) dingy bar on Shoreditch High Street used to be home of the much maligned Ditch bar and has gone to extraordinary lengths to disassociate itself with the past. The place has been refurbished, Art Deco-style windows installed, the bar menu revamped (including hot 'cock-teas', which admittedly go down a treat, and a food available from 5.30pm to 10pm), and a cluster of celebrity DJs hoisted on board (most notably party minx extraordinaire Jodie Harsh, whose popular Circus night on Fridays has made the move from Soho to Shoreditch).

The crowd is an eclectic mix - and this is certainly not the place to be if you're adverse to 20-year-olds in painfully tight jeans with ridiculously coiffed hair and/or cross-dressers/transvestites (we can probably blame Ms Harsh's influence here). Friday nights are indeed a most peculiar affair, with hairy men in fishnet tights offering hairstyling in one corner and some quite frankly peculiar (not to say tiresome) Samuel Beckett-lite monologues performed in another (this presumably does not happen each week, thank God). That said, the music is excellent - a mixture of electro and house - the staff all very friendly and the drinks decently priced.

The powers behind the Last Days of Decadence claim it "will change the face of Shoreditch nightlife - with a hedonistic experience that redefines the concept of Hoxton cool". We're not sure what this piffle means, but it seems that their definition of hedonism is transvestism and their concept of cool is, well, confused. Not everyone's cup of cock-tea, but it can be fun (for a while) and should be a welcome addition to the area's array of exciting venues.

Open Sun-Wed 5pm till late. Thurs-Sat 5pm-2am (entry £3-£8 after 10pm)
