We came here on a Tuesday night for a few cheeky cocktails prior to dinner. Reminds me of bars back home in shoreditch. Definitely ticks the cool box. Gimics such as cocktails based on a Katy Perry cd and menu served in the case made it memorable. Although favourite drink was the winter moijoto. Expensive but good barman, cool spot,... More

Hawthorn Lounge is located at 82 Tory Street. Its a little hard to find but if you look for the Mexican Restaurant Pan de Muerto you can't miss the flight of stairs up to the Hawthorn Lounge. We decided to visit after reading all the good reviews on TA. The lounge bar is very small & intimate which makes it... More

Don't be fooled by the trip advisor category as this is not a restaurant, rather a very nice cocktail bar which does serve limited food (but snack only). Incredible cocktails and service and well worth the visit. Try to get one of the green felt tables and play a bit of friendly game of cards with your friends. The atmosphere... More

It's east to walk right past the Hawthorn Lounge - and once you're through the door you could be mistaken for assuming your heading up to a dodgy office. But step through the door to the actual bar and you're in a cozy little haven of retro chique. There's little more than an eclectic mix of old furniture, a fireplace,... More

What a great little cocktail lounge. Great atmosphere along with some very inventive cocktails. Recommended to us by the guys at the Hop Garden - we wouldn't have found it otherwise as it is tucked away upstairs next to Mexican restaurant but well worth hunting for it. These guys love their work and the service was great.

The barmen know their staff, and aren't wanky about it either. Neve met such polite bar tenders. Cocktails are reasonably priced and well made.

I love this place. I have only been about four times but every time is amazing with the most interesting cocktails and cocktail menu! My boyfriend and I went there for a casual drink on Monday and were blown away with the service. I cannot remember his name now but he made an effort to remember ours and even suggested... More
