Cocktails in Bethnal Green? Yes please.
It’s those dudes from Discount Suit Company who have sexed up this old tavern on Bethnal Green road. It’s all very "east London" with its exposed brickwork, super shiny copper bar and a harder, better, faster crowd. The glassware matches the blinds and they've thrown in a bit of whale music in the toilets to complete this labour of love. It’s all pretty badass.
The menu is divided into tankard cocktails, mixed drinks and fine ales. The tankards come big and they taste fresh, plus you look like a total lad with one. They call their 8 rotating beers (all sourced from a 2 mile radius) “local heroes” and for all you caffeine addicts the coffee they serve from 9am is Square Mile baby!
Tip: bring a rock and roll vinyl and you can swap it for a free cocktail. Just don’t bring any old sh*t because these guys have music standards and some awesome moves.
