    Time Out Says…

    [cocktails are] strong, simple and on the sensible side of surprising. We liked the Softly Softly, a subtle mix of vermouth, bitters, gin and chilli tincture, neat in a frosted coupe glass (£9.50)...A crew of studiously colloquial staff keep things running smoothly; and yes, there’s a chap at the door whose job it probably is to decide whether you can enter or not, but he seems like an amiable sort. Joyeux indeed.

    The Nudge Says…

    It - like most London cocktail bars - serves a seasonal selection of signature and classic cocktails, as well as beer, champagne and light nibbles. It also - unlike any London cocktail bars whatsoever - does so in a room kitted out with ‘1970s tannoy dual 18” speakers...Making it officially the best place in London to listen to live music, accompanied by a chartreuse, millet blanc, elderflower, pepper, sage, lemon and champagne cocktail whilst lounging on low relaxed couches and seeing in the small hours of the morning.

    Barchick Says…

    You’re here for the booze and are in the best hands but this joint’s got its musical funk on too with afro, soul, disco and boogie setting the the tone until the early hours. Nb. Legendary brothers Sam and Daniel Willis are charge of the beats. Open until 2AM in the week and 3AM on Friday and Saturday – no one will be leaving here any time soon. Shoreditch just got a whole lot sexier. Mais oui.
