    Try the Gypsytini, made with honey liquor, rosemary vodka, and dried prunes. Don’t see something you like? The owner, Paul, has created most of the cocktails - he’ll find the perfect drink for you. Read more

    Like any good speakeasy, Lounge Bohemia has a cryptic website and is hidden from the public eye in Shoreditch. It’s located between two kebab shops through a hallway covered in old newspapers. Read more

    One of the best speak easy bars in London. It's tiny and cosy with a unique cocktail menu. a place that you can go casual with friends or for a date! Try the cocktail with the vanilla ice cream!

    Get stuck into one of the books lying around, a couple of chapters in you’ll find the drinks listed. Try the Gypsytini, the Bohemian Iced Coffee or get the rubber duck fan a bubble bath martini. Read more

    Best cocktails ever. So so very cool. Must book ahead. Entry right next to kebab shop. Fab Art Deco furniture and good tunes.

    Best cocktail bar in Shoreditch. Best book ahead and ideal for parties of 3-4 people. Gets abit snug otherwise.

    Open up your wallet and go for the £14 molecular cocktails. Don't worry - they are also quite strong so you won't down them in a sip (bubble bath martini is wow!) :)

    Probably the best bar in London. Booking essential, they don't let too many people in. Lovely service. Incredibly cocktails and very showy at that. Perfect atmosphere.
  • Veronika H.
    Immerse in the magic! Not likely to become your regular bar, but extremely relaxed and the drinks are like a mini-performance! Worth a try!
  • Esther B.
    No occasions just reservations said the hostess. In an area full of great cocktail bars these guys have dilusions of grandeur. Still let us in and cocktails fairly decent. Time to cut the bravado?

    Great little basement speakeasy with quirky menus hidden inside Czech translations of old novels.

    Hip, cozy basement bar with cool cocktails. Be sure to book ahead as tjis place can be quite full.

    Trendy, hipster joint with molecular cocktails. Pricey and you often need to book, but go for one and one of the specials.

    One of the best kept secrets in London. Try anything on the cocktail menu and you will not be disappointed. The staff here know their stuff

    Try the appointment-only Lounge Bohemia, a well-hidden basement bar with midcentury Czech furniture and a “no ties” dress code to scare off the bankers. Read more

    The drinks are delicate and inventive. Begin with an appetiser cocktail made with pea puree & mint & finish with a digestive which brings together Havana Rum, tobacco candy floss & a cigar tube.

    Order some of their molecular gastronomy style cocktails. Brilliant show pieces that taste good, too!

    Go down the concealed stairs and you'll find a slice of 1980's Chzechoslovakia, including some strange - but excellent - cocktails.

    Inventive cocktails with a narrative behind each one. Adds a nice little touch to the experience!

    Nice cocktails, some of them made in a fancy way. However, the fanciness does not match the interior. But I guess that is the charm about this place for many.

    Get the Old Castro and the Lab Test shots (they come in glass vials).
  • Lino D.
    Unbelievable place where cocktails meet storytelling. One of the best cocktail bar in the world.

    Apple pie martini. It actually tastes and 'feels' like liquidised apple pie. Stunning. No, really...

    The Old Fashioned is the best in London. Try out all the different absinth cocktails, great way to start an evening out.
