    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 décor 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.

    Martini: know your Dry from your Dirty The Martini is to drinking what the two-step is to dance: great its own but also a solid base with which to experiment. Any discerning drinker worth their salt (or olive brine) should have at least a passing acquaintance with it.
