The Nudge
The Nudge Says...

You’ll look for a chalkboard discretely propped up against an unmarked stairwell. On reaching the bottom you’ll enter a candlelit den of iniquity that – it seems – was born to relight old flames, and spark up new ones, over some killer cocktails. And killer they are, with Alastair Burgess (former head bartender of award winning Pegu in NYC) at the helm to perfectly execute some old classics with a couple of new twists. Take someone who’s important to you, enjoy a few Mexican Sunsets and Tantris Sidecars, and let happiness remember at Happiness Forgets.

Barchick Says...

Happiness Forgets is all about good drinks and good vibes, nothing too fancy, or in your’s the perfect place for some laid back cocktails after work, or for warming up before a big night out. The music picks up at night and if you have enough of Alistair’s cocktails you’ll be dancing in no time. Each drink is made with a lot of love and affection, you won’t get offered a Cosmo down here.

Time Out
Time Out Says...

Hoxton is not short of a bar or two, but this basement room packs in the punters with a lively vibe, incredible cocktails, and, in our experience, dazzlingly wonderful service. Staff go out of their way to make sure you’re happy. Some drinks have been on the list since the bar opened. They’re innovative but sensible, based on a tight grasp of cocktail fundamentals...One of the best bars in east London – or in all of London, for that matter.
