It's clear that Jesus was no stranger to alcohol -- he turned water into wine, then apparently drank so much of it that his blood gets people tipsy millenniums later -- so it's actually quite fitting that the Goodge St flat formerly occupied by Reverend JW Simpson is now a cocktail bar from the boys behind Bourne & Hollingsworth
JW not only occupies The Reverend's former abode, they've actually left it almost completely intact, keeping original room dividers, peeling & worn wallpaper, and floor tiles, though filling the space with their own chairs & banquettes (Simpson was not a banquette man). Made & served table-side, cocktails see remixed classics like a tequila & sherry cobbler (w/ crushed pineapple) and the Prune Manhattan, which makes sense because it's been underwater. Originals count the basil & honey Mead Fest, as well as the cinnamon/maple syrup Applejack Rabbit, which unfortunately won't make you slims.
There'll be comp snacks circulating throughout the night, and there's an open piano for guests to tinkle the ivories on -- if anyone can play well after a couple of these drinks, it'll be a small miracle.
