1. Happiness Forgets 8-9 Hoxton Square, , London, N1 6NU

Happiness Forgets is subterranean speakeasy that’s also one of the sexiest spots in Shoreditch. Nestled in a discreet basement off Hoxton Square, there's a distinct lack of pretension in this cozy, dimly lit joint: you’ll find friendly banter, expertly mixed cocktails, and a convivial atmosphere evoked by books, liquor bottles, and candles along the shelves. Owned and operated by Alastair Burgess, whose hardcore training at Milk & Honey in London and famed Pegu Club in NYC is a testament to his mixology prowess, the watering hole is frequented by industry folk and locals alike.
