Bedford, Soda & Liquor


Wanna call the shots? This place puts you in the driver’s seat. Build-your-own cocktails from their selection of booze and housemade sodas, and when you get peckish hit up the menu of meatballs and sauce, and, you guessed it - the choice is yours. They’ve even laminated the menu so you can make your selection using a whiteboard marker and hand it in. We’re liking their super nonchalant style.

The space is all about the beautiful clean lines and light-drenched tables. With minimal furnishings the emphasis is on the drinks, service and food, making it ideal for anything: lunch, dinner or late-night drinks.

The cocktail menu is quirky but we love the opportunity to mix it up ourselves. You suggest the fresh ingredients and let the hunks behind the bar work their magic. Our creation included fresh watermelon, peach, mint and white rum. If it’s a tour through the impressive menu you’re after, then we highly recommend the Jasmine Green Tea Collins (organic lemon vodka, lemon, jasmine green tea, honey and soda). Skip dessert and try a liquor-laden shake with peanut butter, rye whiskey, chocolate and vanilla bean ice cream.
