The Brickhouse Launch

Last week I went to the reopening of The Brickhouse on Brick Lane, in East London.  The weather was atrocious.  Absolutely atrocious.  I didn't have an umbrella as it was a sunny morning, but by 7pm the torrential downpour actually rained off my make-up.  I had eyeliner streaming down my cheeks and I turned up looking like a sad, wet clown.

But The Brickhouse redeemed our evening with plenty of champagne, cabaret performances, a jazz singer, trays of gorgeous canap├ęs, circus acts, hula hoop girls, vodka and passionfruit cocktails, an upbeat and fun crowd and the night culminated with us dancing on stage to the DJ's early-90s hiphop tunes.  A very fun Thursday.

The space is a loft warehouse conversion with white-washed walls, glossy tables at different heights spanning the three floors, leather booths, walls made of flattened tyres, loungebeds and private dining areas.  The PR raved about delicious-and-great-value food - and as it bills itself as a supperclub and Shoreditch's answer to fine dining - I'm going back again to sample the menu (and get back on stage)...
