A bartender's night off...

Rivington Street

Terry Cashman of 46 & Mercy
Terry Cashman: Shoreditch is where I've worked for the last seven years, and it's also my go-to area for a night off. I feel that if there's anywhere I know inside out, it's this place.
  • Start here

    Callooh Callay


    65 Rivington Street, London, EC2A 3AY


    Mon-Sun 6pm-1am

    Frequently regarded over the last 5 years as one of the best bars in the world, it's main asset for me is not the menus (fun and original), nor the drinks (always excellent), but the absolutely genuine, warm greeting you get every time you walk in the place.

    Portside Parlour


    14 Rivington Street, London, EC2A 3DU


    Mon-CLOSED, Tue-Sun 5.30pm-Midnight

  • End Here



    68 Rivington Street, London, EC2A 3AY


    Mon-Thu 6pm-1am Fri-Sat 6pm-3am Sun CLOSED

    An absolute riot of a time to end the night, I've never been to New Orleans, but I feel like I've spent many a night there. Jazzy, bluesy music, great, fun staff, a cigar terrace and a convivial friendly crowd make NOLA my first choice for closing time shenanigans. I usually end my night with something the staff named "The Terry Triple" - a beer, shot of Bourbon and a Manhattan... Though I wouldn't recommend this to everybody, it's certainly a good way to keep the happy buzz going all the way home.
