The Permit Room

Another day, another prohibition bar. At least The Permit Room is relevant in reference to the continuing ban on liquor in Bombay since 1949. The Permit Room at Dishoom highlights the elegant Irani cafés that featured across Bombay and were very much part of everyday life in the 1960’s. Now, with only 30 remaining, you can find your own part of Bombay underneath their Shoreditch restaurant re-living those days with sepia family portraits, bentwood chairs and stained mirrors.

With a surprisingly affordable drinks list (whisky sours for £7.50 lured us) the menu continues to delight with old-school juleps in traditional copper cups and Indian influenced drinks. Their chaijito makes you question why we’re not all drinking chai in our mojitos.

You can of course expect laid-back Shoreditch chic what with exposed pipes and everything we come to expect from heading East.
