Welcome to Marlowe Bar and Restaurant at Montcalm East.

Nestled between Shoreditch and the Square Mile, a part of London that pays homage to the vibrant history and diversity of this great city. Inspired by the legendary playwright Christopher Marlowe, our bar and restaurant is a nod to the days when Hoxton and Shoreditch thrived as the bustling entertainment neighbourhoods, rivaling the glamour of the West End's Theatreland.

Marlowe Bar & Restaurant is a place where history, culture, food, drink and friends come together to create a memorable experience. So, come and raise your glass to Christopher Marlowe, to the bustling streets of Shoreditch, and to the magic of London's history.

Christopher Marlowe

Christopher Marlowe, the renowned playwright and a close friend of Shakespeare, left a lasting impact on the cultural landscape of London. Known for his sharp wit and fiery spirit, he was a bit of a street fighter, Marlowe was once arrested and imprisoned in this very neighbourhood. While his famous plays brought people together just down the road, at the iconic Curtain Theatre.
