Trafik Review

To many, Old Street is a blind spot on their map of London venues. This is not surprising, as it is not always easy to find your way there, and then find your way out, through the maze of exits from the tube station.

The area, however, happens to be one of London’s hottest nightlife areas, extending from Hoxton Square to Brick Lane. In the midst of this lies Trafik, a true Mecca for people who can’t stand the West End.

The featured DJ’s are as un-commercial as the area, and pump out the perfect mix to get your adrenaline going. The Photographers, Actors, Artists, and people in the media and marketing businesses who come here are twice as nice and half as posh, but casually trendy. Rodrigo, a 25 year-old actor, said that “it is different, because it is not as dodgy as other venues in the area.”

Sure enough, there is nothing dodgy about the place, with its slick décor and trendy atmosphere, but without the arrogant, posh attitude of the West End.

“My friend and I were constantly hit on by sleazy men throughout the club. When I stepped outside to have a cigarette, the bouncer preceded to hit on me. Bad crowd, terrible atmosphere. The only good point is drinks aren't expensive and it's free to go in.”

Lizzie, Canterbury (4 years 10 months 22 days ago)

“Decent tunes, great drinks, beautiful (and young) crowd, and late night drinking during the week in Shoreditch. The go-to bar when all others are closed. Ladies, watch your bags though, even with door staff one of the girls in our group had her purse nicked at some point in the night.”

The Restaurant Hunter, London (7 years 3 months 27 days ago)

“Going there often for a drink and always find it good. If someone can't enjoy the atmosphere, just create your own with your friends. I'm working in the same industry for last 10 years and can say that prices are just right (and I'm premium spirits drinker..)... What else to say..Went there last week on Monday (which is dead day for most of the bars) and managed to close with them after having a great party. Will definitely come back!”

“Terrible, terrible, terrible. The only fact our rating still has one star is the fact you can't give no stars on this site. Trafik was suggested to us as a late night venue (incidentally it isn't open past 2am!) and the staff were the rudest, most obnoxious people I have had the misfortune of dealing with.”

“If you want to stand in an overstyled coridoor, read totally uninspired cocktails from a cheap laminated A4 and pay for the experience then Traffik is your kind of bar. I nearly slapped the barman when he suggested changed my order from two bottles of Kirin to Budweiser because they had a 2 for 1 deal... And I'm not joking about the menu. Laminated A4 printout with classics like Martini, Cosmopolitan and Caipirhina. I could understand if they changed their menu every week, but if they only serve drinks invented in the 1930s? Seriously, don't go just for a drink. I'm told that the club nights are good but if you want a bar go over the road to the Electricity Showrooms...”
