Bistrotheque restaurant in an artistically happening part of the East End of London is tucked away down a side street and housed in a former clothing factory – look for the loading bay with table and chairs. The excellent menu focuses on classic bistro dishes prepared with a deft hand and served with style in the first floor dining room which is itself a haven of cool stylishness. The walls are white, the floor concrete, the tabletops marble and many of the windowpanes original 1930s issue – it all combines to make a coherent industrial-meets-bistro look. In the centre of it all you'll find the shiny baby grand piano that comes to life each Sunday brunch. The bar and cabaret downstairs is one of the great locations in London to enjoy drag acts, comedy and revues. Bistrotheque's relaxed, focussed Sunday supper with Xavior on the piano is becoming something of a local tradition.
