    The menu constantly changes but if you're a whiskey/rye/bourbon drinker, get the Rye on Rye if it's still on the menu!

    Setting/music are great, but drinks v average (we had a few, so gave it a fair shot). Manhattan Steel corp tasty but watery, Martini was weak, Old Fashioned weak, Bloody Mary salty. Over-rated.

    Go for something different - order the Terroir, made with vodka which has been distilled in clay, flint and lichen, has wine-like depth and flavour. The Prairie Oysters are also worth slurping. Read more

    I strongly disagree with my wife's tip. Cocktails are superb, atmosphere is a soup dolce vita Italian 60' style. Bar tenders are professionals. The music selection is stellar. Will file for a divorce.

    There's only one way to go at a place this good. First order something from the menu. Drink it. Then order your favourite cocktail. Drink that. Then order whichever your preferred again. Prost.

    Got a free cocktail, a "Prairie Oyster" - tomato yolk, vodka, sherry, shallots, pepper, celery salt & herbs - served like an oyster. Not something I would usually try, but it was absolutely delicious.

    Well good luck finding it! Which isn't a bad thing coz if you do manage to locate this hideaway then you will be sitting on someone lap! Its either too trendy or I'm getting old. Sadly the latter.

    Tucked away off Essex Road, 69 Colebrooke Row bears an impressive pedigree. It’s the tiny flagship of bar supremo Tony Conigliaro, noted for his dedication to the art of the mixed drink

    Great cocktails, but if you show up without a reservation they'll seat you on the stairs of shame. They usually find you a table after about 15 mins in my experience, provided its not too busy.

    Located on the corner of the road. I'm not too convinced if this is the best place to hv a drink. It's too cramped and they limit the table's time. Some keen guests even need to sit on stairs.
