    About Moonshiner

    1845 12493

    Moonshiner is a new speakeasy-style bar from the team behind Dirty Dick, Clockwork Orange, and Kremlin. This place is a little different from its predecessors, tapping into the Prohibition era theme that's so popular at the moment. Once you've found its hidden entrance inside a buzzing local pizza place, you'll discover a modern day speakeasy-inspired space full of old books and quirky drinking vessels. The d├ęcor is in keeping with the 1920's theme, all cool chesterfields and dark, quiet corners in which to linger with a drink. The cocktails are well-made and served in mason jars and vintage flasks. The drinks list features around twenty cocktails, the menu spanning from the classics they mix a mean Manhattan - to original creations like the Pen Duick, a mix of Beefeater and white vermouth laced with a house-made smoky syrup and a splash of bitters to make a complex, layered drink. The prices are reasonable given the skill involved and if you're a smoker you'll enjoy the presence of a well-ventilated fumoir. Keep an eye out for the locked safe; if you can guess the combination correctly you'll win a prize. We'll admit the Prohibition concept is starting to feel a bit tired now, but Moonshiner is doing it better than most, with sufficient invention and wit to make it worth a visit.
