Zigfrid von Underbelly Shoreditch

Zigfrid von Underbelly is situated right next to Hoxton Square in trendy Shoreditch. It was established by the designer and owner Paul Daly ten years ago and the two floor venue functions as a live music venue, restaurant and cocktail bar.

Although the menu offers a great selection of cocktails I decided to order a Diet Coke and my friend drank an Innocent Passion cocktail. The cocktail looked and tasted great. All cocktails are reasonable priced, between £7.60 and £8 and all mocktails cost £4. The drink menu can be found >>here<<.

My friend and I both ate the Ziggy Beef Burger, but while I ate normal chips she chose the homemade wedges. A Ziggy Beef Burger costs £7 with 200g of English beef mince, fresh lettuce, tomato, caramelised onion, Cheddar, streaky bacon, mayonnaise and red relish. It tasted great.

The chips and homemade wedges were great too. The food menu can be found >>here<<.

I am surprised the restaurant does not cater for people with dairy and gluten intolerance, nearly everywhere these days gluten free options are available and they are clearly missing on the menu at the moment. Zigrid is currently updating its menu and will offer gluten-free options soon. There are options for vegans and vegetarians though. The service was good and I am likely to return once I am in the area again. It is very easy to find and hard to miss. 
The funky design is definitely an eye catcher. Mismatched chairs, a totem pole and cool pictures hanging on the walls that all want your attention. Did I see an upside down rocking horse hanging on the ceiling? On Thursday it’s Thirsty Friday night with two for one mojitos. That would be probably my favourite night. Who doesn’t love Mojitos? While you sip on your mojitos, a DJ will play a mix of tunes to dance along to. The venue couldn’t fit any better into Shoreditch.

Zigfrid von Underbelly is located at 11 Hoxton Square and the postcode is N1 6NU. Hoxton, Shoreditch High Street and Old Street station are all in walkable distance. Open every day from noon, they close at 1am Monday to Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays at 3am and Sundays at 12:30am. Bookings can be made on 020 7613 1988. Have a look at their website here:

    Haha, this is weird I live just across the road from this place, the whole design is really eye catching so I'm shocked I've never seen it before. The burger looks yummy and perfectly cookes- far too often I see burgers way too pink for me. and that drink looks tasty too! Must pay these guys a visit 🙂 Thanks for letting me know it's there haha

    The design of this place looks great! 🙂 I love places where everything is mismatched and jumbled together…it feels more friendly and cosy than perfectly matching furniture and decor!

    That burger looks delicious too…you really can't beat a well made burger 🙂

    I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and I look forward to meeting you in a few weeks! x
