Chip Shop may seem like a small fish but it’s a major player in these ends with an unmatched offering of seafood, soul food and exquisite hip hop. By day it’s a fairly cosy spot serving up jerk chicken, shrimp, moules mariniéres and more. You'll often find us stopping by their hatch for a cheeky portion of chips slathered in house curry sauce. But my night this turns into a different animal altogether, with the bass turned up and a strong bill of live acts, DJs and MCs packing out the space. Ice T, KRS One and B Real are amongst the heads to have dropped by in previous times, earning this place a cult-like status. It's a real good-time bar, full of friendly sorts unafraid to really go in. One for hip hop geeks and newbies alike.
