London Cocktail Club Bethnal Green
London-City and East London
May 11, 2018
One of the more recent ventures for the London Cocktail Club is the one based in Bethnal Green, in a cozy little nook under the old railway arches. Vibrant (and sometimes a little raucous), the main aim for guests of the London Cocktail Club is to have fun, all while sipping some ingenious cocktail creations. And the Bethnal Green location is no different.
The decor is ‘lounge meets warehouse’, with a collection of red leather chesterfield sofas and wonky lampshades juxtaposed against walls covered in industrial metal sheeting and flashing LED lights. It works, though, and sets the stage for the kind of evening you’re bound to have once you’ve sipped a couple of the bartender’s creations. Speaking of: London Cocktail Club’s menu is extensive and inventive, so much so that you’ll likely have trouble deciding on your tipple. Do you opt for one of the bar’s much-sought-after classics like the Brixton Riot (lychee & peach puree, special reserve vermouth and cranberry juice, shaken with mint and decorated with a flaming passion fruit husk), or indulge in one of the seasonal specials that change every month, such as the Flip The Script (small-batch whiskey, Irish stout, maple syrup, bitters and egg)? There’s a few sharing cocktails (even one behemoth that serves 28 people) and a wide range of flavourful shots that are guaranteed to get the party started. Oh, and there’s also a handful of beers and wines, but with the huge selection of mixed drinks on offer, you may not even give them a second thought.
