The Nudge Says…
Coming to us from cocktail guru Matt Whiley (Peg + Patriot, Purl, Worship St Whistling Shop, etc.) the place has a philosophy of zero waste – turning any leftover cocktail ingredients into bar snacks. Sitting comfortably in the eastern orbit of the Old Street roundabout, the place has a distinctly minimal, Scandinavian feel, with unvarnished furnishings and simple grey walls upstairs, and a kitchen-like Lab on the floor below.Read more…
The menu is as minimal as the decor, with only 10 frequently rotating drinks on the list at any one time.
Design My Night Says…
Shoreditch is a hot spot of amazing cocktail bars and Scout, on Great Eastern Street, looks like a pretty good contender. The venue is split in two, with the downstairs public area serving seasonal and British tipples. Perhaps most excitingly, there is also a laboratory which seats ten and has a cocktail menu that changes daily. The room is available for private hire, cocktail classes and other events that teach you more about Matt Whiley's incredible concoctions.Read more…
Evening Standard Says…
It is so much better than so much around it, and whereas plenty of bars are lazy, thrown together jobs, Scout has been built carefully. They soften the theme with a terrific playlist – who else is spinning Ma$e these days?! Puff Daddy must be delighted – and the place is the easy and enjoyable to be in. Staff are friendly, talkative and knowledgeable, but they don’t show off the way your mate’s boyfriend does... The food, too, is outstanding. Brilliant, gorgeous, better than plenty of restaurants that have opened this year: just simple things.Read more…
