Finding this place is an accomplishment, but the reward for your perseverance is something quite unique. An ancient storeroom is now a watering hole inside a historical building at the heart of St. Helier, sounds like a winner, right?
Enter via a wardrobe at the back of a Weatherspoons type establishment and find yourself in the windowless Blind Pig. Baroque mirrors adorn walls and Renaissance art, which spans the high ceiling drips decadence over the crowd below. The back bar is made from 200 year old French oak carved to perfection and winking bottles and jars give a nod to the apothecary.
When it comes to drinks, classics are served in metal goblets and even miniature plant pots. A traditional absinthe fountain stands proudly on the bar, whilst flashes of blue flame scorch exotic garnishes.
