    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

  • Bitches Who Brunch
    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

    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?

    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.

    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.

  • Alexander H.
    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.

  • Sofia P.
    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!) :)

  • Anna W.
    Trendy, hipster joint with molecular cocktails. Pricey and you often need to book, but go for one and one of the specials.
    Anna Wallace · September 20, 2014
  • Patrick K.
    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.

  • Surface Magazine
    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

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

  • Rax L.
    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

    Go down the concealed stairs and you'll find a slice of 1980's Chzechoslovakia, including some strange - but excellent - cocktails.
    Teddy Keefe · April 13, 2012
  • Kailey L.
    Hip, cozy basement bar with cool cocktails. Be sure to book ahead as tjis place can be quite full.
    Kailey L. · February 4, 2015

    The waitresses bring you a small selection of Czech canapés to sample, tiny and tasty (well 4 out of 5 were). Read more

    You absolutely *have* to book in advance - and don't wear a suit. Fantastic inventive cocktails & hip atmosphere.

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

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

  • Howard L.
    Inventive cocktails with a narrative behind each one. Adds a nice little touch to the experience!
    Howard Lo · June 2, 2013

    Get the Old Castro and the Lab Test shots (they come in glass vials).

  • Glenfiddich Mark ..
    Perfect east end hide-away. Try reading up on the Holy Smoke ;) No suits or ties, thank goodness!

    Pretentious and unwelcoming staff! A place to avoid unless you have booked a table.

  • Sharkleberry
    Play a fun game by selecting horrifying drinks for other people. Like the mushroom jump off.
    Sharkleberry · September 19, 2011
  • Matt B.
    Book in advance and have the tea for two (so alcoholic and easy to drink)
    Matt Bowles · December 10, 2011

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

    The bubble bath drink is £13 but the rubber duckie is worth it.

  • Contemporary Standard
    Order a St. Pepper or a Smuggler and you're not going to be disappointed.
