Is Ask For Janice a euphemism? Is it a biographical finger-paint show inspired by Chandler Bing? Or is it the feminist take on Talk To Frank? Well, it’s actually a song by the Beastie Boys and helpfully, it’s also a cool and casual spot in Farringdon that is surprisingly useful. A light-bite and coffee situation by day and a low-lit, negroni-fuelled bar by night, this place is perfect for a quick midweek burger or several post-Barbican cocktails. It’s worth knowing that they also do a £38 bottomless brunch and unlike a lot of other Farringdon spots, they’re open until midnight throughout the week.
