Got that

Vibe V

ibe Bar is in the ideal position for sitting and watching Brick Lane pass by, soaking up the hustle and bustle of the local markets, while having a drink or two. It’s the ultimate summertime venue, with a huge outside courtyard that’s ideal for upping your vitamin D intake. The courtyard is packed with picnic benches and also hosts a couple of food stalls, which serve delicious jerk chicken, grill meals, and homemade pizzas – perfect for grabbing a bite while supping drinks with friends al fresco. Inside you’ll find the main bar and upstairs, the Vibe Live bar and venue. The main bar is a perfect chill out space, starting to get livelier from about 8pm – before long you’ll find happy folk dancing on sofas, tables into the small hours. There’s a large drinks selection, with the Singha beer on draught being a top choice. DJs provide the tunes come sundown, withthe new

Vibe Bar

Check out the bar with the feel-good factor Function One sound system upping the quality to the max. You can get your funk and soul fix throughout the day, and hear a bit of house in the evening with some 90s dance thrown in if you’re lucky. Take a trip upstairs if live music is more your thing. You’re likely to catch a live band, or a lively open mic session, or pop next door to the gallery space to get artistically inspired. Vibe's popularity as a meeting and destination bar is justified. It pulls in a great crowd, so it's recommended you get there early if you want to lay claim to a bench. With Euro 2012 and the Olympics just around the corner, this summer is set to be an eventful one. There’ll be big screens inside and out, and the atmosphere is sure to be electric. The end of the summer will also see the yearly Brick Lane Music Festival: so be sure to kick back, enjoy the music and soak up, well, the vibe.

Kick back with a beer, soak up the vibe
