A bar, cafe and exhibition space in East London’s Shoreditch.

Our flagship venue, it’s name comes from the 1980’s Bag and Shoe wholesalers that once occupied our building, whose signage still adorns the shop front…. In a time before bars and art galleries, this was the primary industry in Shoreditch.

Our food and drinks

We offer a broad selection of exciting cocktails, speciality beers wine and spirits. During the daytime we offer a selection of tea and finest fresh organic coffee.

Our kitchen serves fresh, stone-baked pizzas, pastas and sides using family recipes and the finest Sardinian ingredients by Amici Miei (Formerly Due Sardi).

Combining lifestyle and creativity within an unfussy, architecturally honest social environment, Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes is considered the seminal template for this breed of drinking establishment.

Our ground floor area is a light and spacious room with high ceilings, sky lights and large glass shop frontage.

The basement bar is a cosy candle lit, raw brick hideout.

As such it is a versatile venue, that plays host any kind of event; club nights, live music performance, lectures, workshops, fashion shows, castings, Sunday markets and art fairs.

It is also of course a blank canvas for regular exhibitions curated by JaguarShoes Collective. On a six to eight week timetable, a new, carefully selected exhibition completely changes the interior scheme of the two-story venue…  So enjoy the shows while they last as you can expect a new look every six weeks…

As well as events and exhibitions DreamBagsJaguarShoes has a strong eclectic music policy and our calendar includes monthly parties with a roster of East London’s best DJs / musicians.

If you would like to make a booking, there are numerous options available for functions, from full venue private hire, basement hire or a simple area/seating reservation, call the bar on 0207 729 5830 or us a link below.
