The Big Chill BarThe Big Chill Festival, held annually in August, is the spiritual home of the ageing raver, and the Big Chill Bar on Brick Lane attempts to recreate its laidback, chat-to-anyone attitude. It's a long low-ceilinged bar with relaxing, unfussy decor and some quirky touches - notably a massive silver buffalo-head next to the door - that distinguish it nicely from the everyday DJ bar. Although there's no dedicated dancefloor, there are plenty of people bouncing around where they stand to a fine mixture of tunes from across the dance music spectrum. Sprawling benches and a raucous atmosphere, lubricated by a decent selection of beers and cocktails, ensure that everyone mingles comfortably and you're practically certain to make a few new friends.
