The Gibson is a unique drinking den in London's Shoreditch , a small and intimate space, decked out with leather bar stools and etched glass windows.

When two of London’s – nay, the world’s – most celebrated bartenders join forces to create an exciting new bar venture, you know it’s going to be something pretty special. The Gibson is a unique drinking den in London’s Shoreditch that is serving up its own take on a cocktail that was supposedly created in Edwardian England – the gibson, a twist on the classic martini that swaps out an olive for a pickled onion. The Gibson is a small and intimate space, decked out with leather bar stools and etched glass windows, but with a drinks menu that shines even brighter than the mirrored tabletops. Cocktails obviously include a range of gibsons, with all but the Dry Gibson (which enrobes a hazelnut) spiked with a premium house-pickled onion. Other unique concoctions worth sipping include the Voodoo Rye – pepper-infused whisky, cajun BBQ syrup, melon puree, veggie root beer, lemon and sweet basil – and the Japito – gin, tamarillo puree, herbal aperitif, tonka bean, lime, marjoram, red grape soda and popping candy. Aside from the delectable mixed drinks, The Gibson also features a small wine list, champagne and two beers from a local brewery. Bar snacks include a selection of pickles (obviously), a meat platter, cheese board, olives, nuts and mackerel pâté.
