32 Caledonian Rd
King's Cross, N1 9DT
The mismatched furniture, old-school video games, skull disco ball, and (most of all) cocktails in vintage teacups make Simmons Bar the hippest cocktail hangout in Kings Cross. This mini London chain slings a range of drinks on the cheap, and on the sweet side -- from the Disco Fizz (gin, lemon juice, sugar, soda water) to the Zombie (rum, apricot brandy, pineapple juice, and orange juice) to teapots full of G&T's, cosmopolitans, and Long Island iced teas. Duck in for an after-work drink, or hole up in the neon-lit basement until the wee hours of the night, as Simmons is open until 3am on weekends.
