Dimly lit and boasting a sort of old school glamour, this long bar has multiple waistcoated bartenders working their magic behind it. It’s real deal service from the minute you’re seated by a hostess and offered cucumber infused water as a refresher. When it comes to the cocktails it’s worth trying something way out left, these guys are good so why not get experimental? We went for the Foo Foo Band Night because peanut butter rum sounded too good to pass up. Oh and we chased each cocktail with bubbles, dead classy.
If you’re worried about mingling with Dalston’s notoriously rowdiest then don’t be, the crowd is one of finessed cocktail drinkers. Couples and small groups sit closely together and the only bad behaviour came from BarChick’s table, obvs.
