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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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!) :)
