    The menu is a slow-moving in this understated basement bar, changing as inspiration comes to create something better than what preceded them. Currently, try the smoky yet citrus mezcal mix, Bootlegger

    If you're sick of gimicky drinks in hipster places, come here for superb no-frills cocktails in a simple basement bar. Everything on the menu is worth getting, esp. the Bootlegger and the Cassidy.

    The ambience is like that of a dark basement bar, but the cocktails are great. The Tokyo Collins (gin + yuzu sake and lemon) was a standout

    Try the martinis or vermouth based cocktails (like Dip in the Afternoon). Super friendly staff that are very willing (and able) to help you choose the perfect cocktail. Highly recommended!

    Reserve a table in advance for a cozy nook. Otherwise mix it up at the bar.

    An intimate underground speakeasy-style cocktail bar. Grab a seat at the bar and order the Red Crook.

    Nightlife! Good cocktail bar in the Hoxton square if you feel like night life on Friday, after that you can check out the other bars around - this one is just cocktails but plenty of discos near it

    Go for the PBR Flip; it contains no actual PBR, and is a creamy, eggy badass of a beverage.

    British secret version of Knee High Stocking Co, Death & Co, or Trick Dog (minus the crowd). Head down the dark staircase and ask for Christine.

    Great place to grab a cocktail and the bar staff are extremely helpful, if not a little psychic…

    A great cocktail both on and off menu. True to its name, I never seem to exactly remember what I had the night before, but you really can't go wrong with any of it.
