Now open in Clapham, this bi-level sports a DJ-paced dance floor below, and a 1920s speakeasy up top, lending credence to pro-abstinence forces by making you useless through cocktails (Sidecars, Old Fashioneds, the staggering gin/vodka/whiskey/Cointreau Red Death), "Tea Trays" (pots of gin served w/ sandwiches), and crafts like Innis & Gunn, Spain's Moritz, and the Bavarian Hacker Hell (apparently not everyone has a high opinion of Jonny Lee Miller).
