    Like 3,000 different whiskeys to select from. Also order the charcuterie with your drinks. Feels like a NYC speakeasy.

    Cocktails are generally good though can be unstable recently with the new intro to the retro flavours. It's currently a bit too funky for my liking. Expresso martini with whipped cream on top???!!

    The Blazer is always in season, but particularly good as a winter nightcap. Also, they do a Rye and Gosling's; not as dreamy as its namesake.

    Broody and luxe, this connoiseur's bar houses a unique collection of antique cocktail accessories. Play the part: sip champagne from Marie Antoinette glasses and Negronis from cut crystal tumblers.

    It might not be kosher, but they make a beery good cocktail! Ask Luke Redington for a Bloomsbury Bitter. He makes it using a beer syrup he whips up using Knappstein’s lovely lager. Read more

    Serious the cocktails here were a rip off, and tasted horrid. Maybe we went on a day with a shitty bar tender, but expected more from a place with such good reviews?

    If Luke is working, ask to try his own "Bloomsbury Bitters" cocktail. It's as close to beer as a cocktail comes - even more manly than the James Bond favorite, the martini. Read more
