About the restaurant
If you want the perfect compliment to your Magic Mike Live experience, book a table at our new lounge ‘Permission.’ With lite bites, hand-crafted cocktails and live music curated by Magic Mike, there’s really no reason to go anywhere else. Bookings before the show get skip the line privileges into the theater. Oh, and did we mention our cast loves to hang out in the lounge post-show?

Permission is only for those over 18. If you are fortunate enough to look under 25 please ensure you bring a physical photo ID, either a passport or full driving licence.

Absolutely superb service, attentive throughout the brunch and really felt personal. Can't praise Antonio serving us enough! Lovely guy playing the piano and singing which set the right ambience whilst we were eating. Food was delicious and we didn't have to wait long at all. Highly recommend and would definitely visit again.

As a group of 5, all of our food was excellent and arrived together. Portions were adequate and overall would highly recommend. I had the Duck Tikka starter which was very tender.

About the restaurant
“A stones throw away from Dalston Kingsland Station you will find The Dalston Jazz Bar. It’s a full on restaurant up until 10 PM. They serve an array of fresh seafood as well as yummy beer from a local brewery and cocktails. The live band plays throughout the night with a few breaks. After 10 PM they clear all tables and chairs to create a dance floor and this place then really starts to rock! Please make the restaurant aware if you would be ordering vegetarian dishes as they are made fresh to order. We can not provide the vegetarian dishes if not notified prior."

Bringing a dash of Danish-Japanese style to the Shoreditch High Street, neighbourhood’s already vibrant dining scene.

There’s lots to look forward to. An urban-cool new restaurant that mixes Danish Hygge with Japanese aesthetics, where you can dine and unwind. As well as our classic menu of fresh sushi, grilled yakitori sticks and meticulously mixed drinks.

Great experience, we loved the show and the vibe was just great ! Food wise, its nothing exceptional and find it a bit expensive for what it is. But we were very entertained throughout the evening. Cocktails were also amazing!

Modern European
About the restaurant
28°-50° by Night brings the same sophisticated yet relaxed approach to wine and food which is characteristic of 28°-50°, but with a twist. Live jazz and blues music sets the ambiance as you dine from our seasonal modern European A La Carte menu which is served until 1am. Our in-house team of passionate sommeliers are always on hand to help pair your meal with our exquisite wine list. 28°-50° by Night offers an intimate underground atmosphere which, paired with the live band, evokes a sense of decadence reminiscent of the 1920s jazz scene. If you fancy dipping away from the stir of modern city life for a relaxed night of great food, wine and music, our friendly staff are ready to welcome you.

Great place with a traditional jazz basement vibe. The only pity is the crowd talks over the music performers a lot.
