Our flagship venue, launched in 2001. Its name derives 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 and this venue (one of the areas first) defined this now prolific class of arts venue and this area of London.

Combining arts and lifestyle and creativity within a rough around the edges, architecturally honest environment, Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes provided the template for this now abundant 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 site is located at 32-36 Kingsland Road, E2 8DA in Shoreditch, London. Contact number is 0207 683 0912 and email is

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 performances, lectures, workshops, fashion shows, castings, Sunday markets and art fairs...

On weekend nights (occasionally Thursday and Sunday as well), our basement turns into a club and music venue. Behind the programming is Short Waves and one of London's most important labels Permanent Creeps. We put a lot of energy into selecting the best up and coming bands, peculiar DJs, music passionates, record labels from London and beyond. We work with wonderful people who play unconventional music on radio stations such as NTS, Lyl Radio, Red Light Radio, Netil Radio. All styles are welcome, the only thing that matters to us is to see our clientele dancing and having a good time.

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


All the artwork on our exhibitions is for sale. For prints and originals contact


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.



Taco Collective was founded in January 2020 by twins Rahil & Nik with best pal Chris in the quest to escape corporate life & follow their passion for street food.

Evolving from Taco nights to pop-ups in Lewisham & Brockley Brewery, the lads established a cult following in London which has followed them all over the city to Shoreditch which they now call home.
