The Refreshment Room is a retro inspired bar in the heart of Stratford City. A chilled environment with interesting decor, which includes a wall of vinyls, Banksy inspired artwork, retro movie posters and one of the best beer gardens in Stratford.

Jason Eli's music covers breaks, funk, reggae, House, Garage & good grooves. He's remixed and produced major artists including Whitney Houston and Mos Def. Born in London, Eli's big break happened after sending his DJ mix cassette to Ministry of Sound, and he was immediately made their Saturday night resident DJ. Always on a journey for new sounds Eli formed Albino Productions with top UK producer Amar Saeed, with a mission to fuse eastern beats with electronica. They played weekly at “Swaraj” (based in London’s seminal Blue note club) which was one of the first clubs to play fresh World music that could come from both New York and New Delhi. Jason Eli was heavily involved in the nurturing of the UK Garage and UK Urban scenes during the late 1990’, producing and remixing five UK national top 40 hits in that time.
