How do I get to Roadtrip & The Workshop?
Old Street Station is just a minute’s walk from us – just follow ‘Exit 2’ and keep on going until you spot our terrace!
If you find yourself at Hoxton Station, Shoreditch High Street Station or even Liverpool Street Station, you won’t be too far either: 10-15 minutes tops depending on your engine power.
Can I book a table or an area?
You most definitely can – please see the Booking page. We charge a £20 – £50 deposit, depending on the size of the party, to secure your booking. This will be considered as minimum spend so we don’t get to keep it, you get to order drinks and food with it on the night. Please note that unless it’s a dining booking, depending on the day of the week, your area can be some seated, some standing – a mingling set-up. We would kindly like to ask you not to be late for your booking. Our full T&Cs for table & area bookings can be found here. Bigger parties and private hire have their own specially agreed arrangements & deposits.
How can I pay?
We accept cash & cards, including AmEx. Please note that the minimum on card is £3 so it’s a good idea to grab a pack of crisps or buy a drink for your friend if your order doesn’t reach the amount.
We don’t run open tabs, but if it’s a special occasion like a staff party, for example, and you don’t want to get up every time someone needs a top-up, we can arrange pre-paid tabs. Private parties and bigger events have their own arrangements.
Do you have a guest list?
Not really. If you book a table or an area, then we’ll put your name down with the number of guests you’re celebrating with, but you’ll all have to queue with the rest of the mortals and all the ID checks and search policies still apply in order to guarantee everyone’s safety. It’s just because more than one booking can arrive at the same time and in the end we’re all equal and here to have a good time.
Do you have a happy hour?
Yes! Check our food & drinks page for all the up to date offers.
Why did your door guard ask me to get rid of my bottle of water before entry?
Although we wholeheartedly believe you had water in your bottle, we can’t make sure this is the case with everyone so it’s best if everyone leaves their own drinks behind. This is to make sure that our business is respected and to guarantee everyone’s safety.
Why was I told I can't have drinks on the terrace while there were people out there with drinks?
In London most places have to stop serving to their terraces from 11pm and we are no exception. We start preparing for this a little before 11pm so if that’s the time you arrived, you might be asked not to bring drinks outside while the guests, who were on the terrace before you arrived, get the chance to finish theirs.
Do I need to bring an ID and what else can I expect on the door?
Yes! We operate as an 18+ only venue. Please bring your ID and remind your friends to do the same. As a licensed venue we work closely with the local authorities to guarantee everyone’s safety so you can also expect our door guards to do their job when they ask to see what’s in your bag or if they can pat down and pocket search. Please don’t be offended and assist our guards – this is to guarantee everyone’s safety.
Can I bring my child?
You are welcome to visit us with children during daytime and early evenings, but any underage person must be supervised by an adult at all times and we remind you to pay extra attention if brining a little one as it’s not primarily a space for children.
We operate as an 18+ only venue after 9pm.
What's the story with disabled access?
Roadtrip upstairs is fully disabled friendly with no steps to enter, and a disabled restroom. Access to The Workshop is down two flights of rather narrow stairs so special arrangements would have to be made.
Where can I park?
There’s not much public street parking around us. You might be able to find some parking on side streets and there’s an NCP (private car park operator; www.ncp.co.uk) on Great Easter Street.
We strongly advise anyone visiting with the intention of consuming alcoholic drinks to appoint a designated driver, use public transport or our staff will be happy to call you a licensed mini-cab. Never drink & drive.
Do you have a dress code?
No and yes. Just try to be cool, whatever that word means for you. Most importantly – act cool. Then we’re cool (but no flip-flops late on Friday & Saturday nights when our clubby vibe kicks in, we don’t want your toes to get hurt on the dance floor).
Will you host my stag or hen party?
Whereas we are utterly thrilled that you would like to celebrate with us, we are unfortunately unable to host hen & stag parties if they involve costumes and/or rowdy shenanigans. If it’s just regular drinks or something completely extravagant that involves hiring The Workshop for your private party for example, then of course, please get in touch on our bookings page.
I have lost something, can you help?
If you’ve left something behind, send us a message from this very page with the make/model/size/shape/colour/brand description and we’ll do our best looking for it. Remember, it is an offence to report something stolen just to get a reference number for the insurance.
