London’s top five quirky restaurants and bars – Guardian

This live music venue is tucked away in the courtyard of a former techno club on Cable Street. There’s no sign outside. Just follow the muffled strains of a fiddle into a shambolic wonderland that’s part junk shop, part cabaret. The random ornaments are cast-offs donated by regulars or salvaged from skips – an accordion, a birdcage, an antique gramophone, a tableau of lampshades rescued from a pub that was being demolished. Each night the line-up is different: it could be gypsy swing, Celtic folk or Costa Rican guitar. Monday nights are a raucous medley of bluegrass and folk.
