      Description

      What happened to the Rave Generation when they got too old to rave? Many fell by the wayside: jobs, families and general hard work left them with no time to party. Some of them are still out there, wide-eyed drug-shrivelled rave trolls with UV beads and terrible mental problems. The Big Chill festival is the spiritual home of the remainder. Offering the laidback, chat-to-anyone attitude of a proper rave combined with proper hygiene, smaller crowds and an eclectic selection of chilled-out tunes, it’s rapidly established itself as the best party of the summer. The Big Chill Bar is an attempt to recreate that mood year-round. 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 distinguishes 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. There's also some delicious grilled pub-grub, tapas and meze finger-food. Though not cheap, it's pretty affordable for this part of London, with beers around £3 a pint and main meals starting from around £6. The Brick Lane location means it attracts a fair few trendy twenty-something clones, but there are plenty more with the real festival spirit. 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. A valuable, easy-going addition to Brick Lane's crowded bar scene.
