    If you’re with a small group, consider booking the Dram Shop, a private room centered on a cast iron bathtub and “honesty bar,” where partiers can help themselves to a selection of booze. Read more

    Lovely little speakeasy, perfect for a date. Book in advance, it's a small space. If the PB&J old fashioned is on the menu, order it!

    Opening April 28, it will comprise of 2 private dining areas & a bar stocked with genuine period gin bottles. The menu will be a thoroughly modern spin on dishes such as suckling pig & rabbit hot pot. Read more

    Speakeasy atmosphere, very special cocktails. Book the private room with the bath. Ideal for special occasions. Whiskey lovers try "Mac Askill Sour", rum lovers go for "Grand Solera Evolution".

    Richest gin menu I've ever seen. Cocktails are innovative and experimental. That's cool but the cocktail menu is over-designed and complicated to be understood. Interior design is interesting and cozy

    Whilst Worship mixes some of the best cocktails in London, the occasionally vacant atmosphere often ails in comparison to other well-situated bars. Recommended for large groups, small parties beware.

    Inventive cocktails with a modern twist &, at least when I was there, a focus on gin. Went with a group of beer drinkers and they were cocktail converts by the end of the evening.

    Expensive but fun. Don't be afraid to ask the knowledgeable bar staff to explain the cocktails as some ingredients are a little obscure. Worth booking a table in advance if you go on a Thursday or Fri

    WSWS offers hearty gin and whisky cocktails, “cockle-warmers” and some lovely stouts and ales – perfect for relaxing in a cosy armchair in their darkly Dickensian cellar room. Read more

    The place is beautiful, private rooms with victorian-inspired gin&cream bathtubs, nice small lab. Try the ketchup syrup with cheese, surprising and absolutely delicious. The cocktails are amazing.

    Fusions, blends, high pressure this, fermented that, it's Blumentals for boozers in here. BarChick had about 6 Civility Cocktails, delicious and dangerous as you can hardly taste the alcohol. Read more

    Cocktails are out of the ordinary that's for sure. The decor is clearly the big plus for the ambience. Nice idea with the flyer menus, the girls love them.

    Don't turn up in a party of 40+ and then have everyone order a cocktail. They can't cope (as you might expect). ;-) Very nice cocktails and the stout's good too! Read more

    Wacky selection of cocktails but the ones we had were a bit underwhelming. Cracking selection of whisky. Not often you see bar with Springbank CV! Sign of people who know their stuff!

    Loverly place in some ways. However the girl who was running the back bar on 22nd of december was one of the nastiest I've ever experienced. So rude to us! Don't know how she still has a job!!
