Visiting friends in London after a great dinner we decided to try this new cocktail bar I hadn’t been to . The decor is really cool and interesting. Cocktails good but bit pricey and friendly staff

We had booked (and I'd recommend doing so as it gets busy) for cocktails 5 onwards. Happy hour is 4-7 I think (241 cocktails), this made it remarkably good value with an excellent menu. The place was buzzing and great music.

This place has fun written all over. Walk down and you are faced with recording cameras that project you on a TV screen. Happy smiley barmen and a fun student vibe! Definitely a fun bar to drink in!

Quirky underground bar that you can't really see from the outside, but that is super cool on the inside. Staff are nice, and there is a great variety of cocktails. I would recommend to come early to get a table :)
