This bar wins points for originality for its name alone. The concept is not quite so unique. This is another in a rash of speak-easy style venues that have been springing up around the capital. The Mayor is tucked beneath the Spitalfields branch of superior café, The Breakfast Club. The entrance is ‘hidden’ behind a faux-fridge door inside. This feels like a half-hearted stab at the requisite illicitness of true speakeasys but if you play along you’ll be rewarded by a cool, low-lit space serving high quality cocktails. The obligatory retro furniture is present and correct. The drinks are very well-crafted and this ends up being the big selling point. They know how to mix a good cocktail and the atmosphere is less aggressively hip than some other bars of this kind. Consider us won over.
