The Allegory

In the heart of Shoreditch's happening hub, Principal Place, The Allegory is an everyday escape in London’s buzzing unsquare mile.

Enjoy quick catch-ups over pastries and freshly ground coffee, wholesome sharing platters and creative cocktails; these one-of-a-kind experiences will be found at The Allegory. With a beautiful alfresco terrace, large open plan bar and cosy candlelit corners, this is a destination you'll want to return to again and again.

Despite the government’s roadmap allowing outdoor hospitality to resume from April 12th, we won’t be reopening our doors just yet. A handful of our lovely sister bars & restaurants will be opening their terraces though; book in a well overdue catch up with friends at The Sipping Room, The Parlour, The Refinery Bankside, Devonshire Terrace, The Happenstance or Drake & Morgan at King’s Cross.
