At long last, the Bike Shed Motorcycle Club is a place you can go to, seven days a week… After almost five years of blogging, publishing, meets, rides and events we’ve quit the day jobs and created a fulltime space in the heart of Central London. If you’ve been to one of our events you know exactly what to expect: Great custom bikes, proper barrista coffee, superb food & hospitality, plus a shop curated with all the best gear & apparel, and you can even get your hair cut.
The Bike Shed Motorcycle Club is at 384 Old Street, EC1V 9LT, under the bridge next to the old Shoreditch Town Hall beside the junction of Shoreditch High Street. We’re open 8am till 11pm every day. We’re just a few minutes walk from Brick Lane, Columbia Rd Flower Market, The Old Truman Brewery and Spitalfields, so if your loved-ones are less keen on bikes, send them out to shop while you enjoy a cold-one with us and our bikes.
FOOD & DRINK
If you just want to park up and have a coffee, there are tables outside beside the bike parking, or come inside for diner food, or get posh and intimate with proper restaurant food from our Head Chef, Uwe, who has cooked-up some seriously delicious grub, from hot Scotch eggs at the bar, to Bike Shed burgers, Bacon & Egg sandwiches (made with 24hr braised pork belly) to certified Angus steak with shed-made chips. We also have a really good selection on beer, wines and cocktails. The new and improved menu changes all the time, but this is how it looks today.
You can walk in anytime, but we could get busy on evenings and weekends, so if you want a meal make a reservation please click HERE
We have parking for around 25 bikes at a time in our private road under the neon-lit entrance, and on really busy days we can sometimes open up an arch to let another 50+ bikes park inside.
However, please don’t use the Bike Shed as a public car park while you go shopping or to work, etc. Parking is for customers only, and we do expect visitors to remain in the venue while their bikes are here. If you do have an emergency and need to leave your bike unattended for any reason, find the manager, ask permission and leave your keys with us.
OPENING TIMES & LICENSED HOURS
The Bike Shed is open to the public every day from 8am till 11pm, but after 8pm we can only serve alcohol to Bike Shed members, their guests and diners. This helps with our license, but it also means we can turn away the drunks that fill the streets of Shoreditch most nights of the week. Non-members are very welcome after 8, but unless you’re eating some hot food, or are signed-in by a member, you can only drink tea, coffee and soft drinks.
Monday – Sunday
8:00 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.
There is a proper huge shop full of all the kind of gear you can only normally find online. Everything we sell is handpicked by us, and is gear we would use or wear every day. We specialise in the limited edition stuff, new products and we try to mix the big brands with the best newcomers. Expect everything from Belstaff, RSD, Bell, Biltwell, Rev-It, Helstons, Rokker, Resurgence & Co along side the likes of Malle and Bike Shed gear.
Shop opening hours.
Walk-ins on Saturday
If you can’t get to us, you can Shop at the Bike Shed on-line. Some brands and merchandise may only be available in-store.
The Bike Shed does run a club-membership scheme, for those that want to support us, but we are fully open to the public till 11pm. Read more about that HERE.
We hate rules, but now that we have a proper place with neighbours and a local authority to consider, we do have to ask people not to be twats, make unnecessary noise or ride like an idiot anywhere near the venue. Our main entrance is on a red-route in one of London’s busiest places and people live near by. Also, there’s CCTV everywhere and the Police are always around. Get us into trouble and you’ll be asked to leave. So – if you want to show-off your stunting skills or loud pipes, please go somewhere else.
We’d also ask you not to drink and ride, but that doesn’t mean you can leave your bike with us overnight. We’re not an NCP and we won’t look after your pride and joy. No locks when you park please.
