3. House of Wolf 181 Upper St, London, N1 1RQ (Islington)

HoW serves up deliciously unique cocktails, like the David Bellamy (which involves an edible flower and straw as a stem), and the Wolf's Blood (that involves a bottle of cognac, hypodermic needle, and spherified black cherry). There's no telling how crazy/tasty your 'tails will be once you walk in.
