A wonderful speakeasy-style cocktail bar in the funky Hoxton district of London serving highly imaginative cocktails that are as visually stunning as they are delicious.

My favorite cocktail experience in London to date.  Reservations well in advance of your visit are a must (book through their website), and note that there is a cover charge if you book a table after 8pm, which is when the nightly live music begins.  Prices are a little on the high side, seating is a bit cramped, and the noise level is high, but the drinks are well worth it.  Tried and recommend: Rosehip Julab, Clandestino Sour, Rodriguez Sour, Blue Moon.  Next time will definitely try the Barrel-Aged Zombie and the Yorkshire Punch, which is served in a smoking owl pitcher!
