Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes
Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes is a leading bar, cafe and gallery space in the middle of Shoreditch.
Sip a cocktail or beer, order a stone-baked pizza, have a dance and check out an exhibition all under one roof.
It showcases art across all media and works closely with independent music and fashion labels, hosting a range of events including DJ nights and exhibition openings.
The venue's quirky name dates back to the 1980s when a bag and shoe wholesalers occupied the two former shop fronts - and whose signage still adorns the premises - harking back to an era before Shoreditch was populated by a plethora of bars, clubs and art galleries.
It is now one in an ever decreasing list of Shoreditch early-adopters still in existence, set up by an enterprising creative collective in 2001 in order to showcase local talent. It keeps going from strength to strength, with its Hackney portfolio now including the Victoria, Hand of Glory and No.one.
