It's become a City tradition for bankers and traders to meet at 'the railway carriage', just a minute away from Liverpool Street station. In winter, it's a cosy, intimate place to meet and chat. In summer, the place goes wild. This bar probably serves more Pimm's per square foot than anywhere else in the UK and bar staff that survive a summer here wear it as a badge of honour for the rest of their career.

On the first hot day of summer, hundreds of people flock to the bar for a glass of something cold and refreshing overlooking the croquet lawn. Competition to hit the first mallet of summer is strong and we're strict about the rules of handling balls - both on and off the pitch.

Comedy quiz nights - hire the entire venue and host your own comedy quiz night.

  • Early Nineties developed open space with fountain suspended over Liverpool Station’s rail-lines and surrounded by an aggregate of post 1980’s commercial buildings excepting the simple 19th.Century train shed fringed in wooden barge-boards. The elegant ‘bridged’ Exchange House (1990) on the northern side again effortlessly spanning the railway-lines, surely counts amongst London’s most innovative and accomplished modern buildings. Purposed spot to undo the knot+top button, let it all hang out - just like the Broadgate Venus do.
  • Great atmosphere with lots of steps to sit on and a beautiful water fountain. Great place for winter events such as ice skating and summer events such as sense of space. Pictures of sense of space added below! Four rooms, each with a unique feel of the space around it. My favourite was definitely the doddle room!
