    Time Out Says…

    nstead it’s like an extensive library, with the best seats at the rear: deep armchairs and sweeping semi-circle banquettes in jade leather. The place is not entirely quirk-free, though. You’ll find a photo booth on your way to the bogs, proof that Islington isn’t afraid of a few post-tipple lols... I suggest heading here before dinner in the area, or else just get comfortable and order in. Best of all, and again differing from Callooh Callay, Little Bat has stuck with neighbourhood prices. So it’s more cutesy than bloodthirsty, a hangout that offers character and cocktails nous not often seen in this area. Fangs for that, drink gods.

    Conde Nast Traveller Says…

    Set behind a sombre, white-curtained front, it's a long, narrow space with a sweeping, wooden-topped bar, comfy Chesterfields, pineapple lamps, vintage tomes on floating shelves, a line-up of neon-bright Pure Evil artwork and a Photomat booth at the back... the menu's strong on fizzes and sours - they must get through more eggs than Mr Strong - but also try the punchy, top-of-the-bill Steve McQueen (bourbon with cherry liqueur, Martini Rosso and cherry brandy) and the theatrical Smoking Jack, a lovely leafpeeping concoction with applejack, maple syrup and cognac.

    Design My Night Says…

    Borrowing its name from the Mad Hatter’s poem, Little Bat is a friendly and accessible new haunt for the neighbourhood. Expect 'library' and 'museum' zones, and a food menu to rival the Upper Street restaurant scene, perfect for those hankering after something a little different. Drop in and you’ll soon be nursing some of the best cocktails in the business thanks to master mixologists, as well as a fine choice of wine, beers and bubbles, too. Little Bat suits cosy date nights, casual drinks after work or meeting up with all your crew to celebrate a special occasion at weekends.
