Urban Bar information
You probably wouldn’t travel far or wide for this boozer with its distinctive tiger-striped livery. But it’s an unmissable (to say the least) and convivial Whitechapel landmark, just opposite the tube. Definitely a pub (with a good range of beers) but somehow reminiscent of a cafe, UB attracts students in the area (Queen Mary College is a short distance to the east) and the occasional white coat from the Royal London Hospital next door.
