Last weekend I went along to the launch of a brand new venue in Southend-on-Sea. East Coast Social has launched after a £1.5 million refit and it was most certainly worth the money!
You enter the bar on the ground level and are greeted by an array of quirky, unique objects from chest boxes used as tables to a red telephone box in the corner. The laid back atmosphere of the bar area is really nice and it feels a lot more relaxed than some other bars in the area. Come night on a Friday and Saturday this area is home to a DJ and with a late licence you can pop in for a few drinks and stay for a dance too.
Upstairs is the East Coast Social restaurant, where they serve a wonderfully tempting menu of food. With steaks, burgers and lobster on the menu I will most definitely be trying them out soon. A few of the items are cooked on hot rocks at your table too which is another unique idea.
Overall I was really impressed with the bar and restaurant, it will certainly be somewhere I will visit again soon.
Best of luck to the team with their launch today!
