Rules of the space

Sorry, we're not able to have a DJ playing in AFJ.


Ask for Janice and you’ll find her in the heart of the city, located just 5 minutes walk from both Farringdon & Barbican tube stations.

One of London’s most laid back spaces, AFJ (as she’s known to her friends) is the perfect venue for corporate and private parties of 50 - 100 guests looking to have a great bar all to themselves.

The glass-fronted bar looks out over Smithfield market and inside, our range of over 40 gins & 60 craft beers means there’s plenty to choose from for any event.

The team at AFJ are great at what they do and love nothing more than a good knees up wether it’s for birthdays & engagements to the annual summer & Christmas party, product launches and just because we cans!
