A sister bar to New York’s Milk & Honey, The Everleigh offers the same combination of killer cocktails and a seductive atmosphere in which to drink them. The vibe is one of a 1920s American-style speakeasy with glinting vintage chandeliers, attractively tiled floors and lots of wood panelling. The tables are bathed in candlelight and the whole place has a warm inviting glow about it. The bar has scooped a number of awards since opening in 2011 including Gourmet Traveller’s Bar of the Year 2012 the Times also rated it one of the 50 best bars in the world – and the drinks are of the high standard you’d expect from the M&H stable. Ice is hand-cut and juices are all fresh squeezed. Cocktails include the Honeysuckle, a smooth mix of light rum, lime and a dash of honey, and the Professor, a potent blend of gin, pomegranate, lime and a dash of absinthe. The list is relatively short but the bartenders are a skilled bunch and will happily prepare a drink to suit your particular tastes and whims. Service is slick, efficient and attitude-free, and large parties are discouraged so you can enjoy your drink in a fittingly reverent and stylish atmosphere.
