Translate is an awesome cocktail bar on Kingsland Road in the heart of Shoreditch open until 2am every night and until 3pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Given a lot of neighbouring bars close at 2am, I was already excited to visit! Oh and an added bonus is free entry!
There is an industrial / warehouse vibe to the space, with exposed brick walls and a shabby chic decor with booths, tables and, of course, space to dance! The music was awesome 90s and 00s ranging from Destiny’s Child, Oasis and Ed Sheeran to Britney and Whitney and we just danced the night away.
We stuck with cocktails for most of the night and tried Respect Your Elders – Gin, Elderflower, apple juice, mint and lime, Garden Party – Gin, cucumber, passion fruit, lime, grapefruit, tonic
Mango Unchained – Absolute Mango & Fraise with strawberries and lime Coconut Shy – Rum, Malibu, pineapple juice, coconut syrup and lime and Salted caramel espresso martini. One of the members of staff, Andrea, helped us choose our cocktails and he was very friendly and accommodating.
Definitely recommend Translate for a night out and it is also a cafe bar during the day, open from 8am and serving breakfast / brunch and lunch and dinner!
They also offer a great deal for Fizz Friday – book an area for 6 or more people and when you buy your first round you get a bottle of Prosecco for free!
