We took a seat at the bar, and before we knew it, were being regaled by the suited bartender with the story of Peychaud and his bitters. As he made our drinks we learnt about his favourite theory of the birth of the cocktail, about New Orleans and more about bitters. This isn’t somewhere to come in a hurry, but it is somewhere to come for a beautifully crafted drink amidst some serious sophistication.

It feels like the stylish office of a dark brooding gentleman in the 1950s. The walls are slate grey, with rosewood paneling, black leather sofas and hessian rugs. Decorated with antique glassware and books on cocktail craft in display cabinets, these add to the image. It’s somewhere to sit back with a well-made drink before flicking through some vintage design magazine from the coffee table.

Opened by bartender Kasper Riewe Henriksen of Ruby, he’s brought the high standards of his former establishment. We were given tasters of unusual bitters and aquavit to help us decide on our drink, eventually opting for an Infante and Rumbo No Rum, both perfectly balanced and complex. The service is high quality here even at the busiest of times.
