From the team behind The Hemingway and Hunter S, this occcult-tinged neighborhood watering hole is a trendy and delicious place to lounge with a drink. Dark slatted shutters betray little of the outside, but once you’re in, you’ll find candlelit tables, strange taxidermy, old-school hip-hop, tasty snacks, and mind-blowing drinks. These guys were at Milk & Honey in its heyday and really know their stuff, treating you to a classic-heavy, daily-changing menu filled with drinks you know and drinks you’ll never forget. It's not a huge space, and it's definitely popular, so make sure to get there early for a seat at the bar.
Attention to detail is key at this Hoxton bar, from the hand-sawn ice in their creative 'tails, to a wide range of fresh juices, to tasty Caribbean soul food dishes made using locally sourced produce.
