The UK's bar scene might be chock-full of Prohibition-style speakeasies, but Nightjar stands out from the crowd by simply being the best of the lot. A sultry subterranean bar, it's also an excellent live venue where jazz artists feature prominently on the bill.
Head down the stairs, and you quickly feel like you’re in a 1920’s speakeasy, all very “New York” and sophisticated, so dress up, and get yourself a Manhattan! The drinks are simply amazing, varied, creative, many unique and the list lengthy – it may take you a while to make your choice, but take your time, the table service is great.
Through the candlelight and conspiratorial whisperings you’ll notice the rose-tinted mirrors, the leather chairs, and the illicit, darkened corners. You’ll hear the hum of live jazz emanating from the flat-capped jazz men on stage, and winding its way through the shadows to the bar where Nightjar’s award-winning cocktails are created...In fact, the drinks are so good that Nightjar offers its patrons decks of cards inscribed with the full cocktail menu, and hip flasks to take away. Nightjar’s the real deal: not much else to say.
