Foursquare Tips

  • There's only one way to go at a place this good. First order something from the menu. Drink it. Then order your favourite cocktail. Drink that. Then order whichever your preferred again. Prost.
  • One of the best little bars in London. Tony C creates fab drinks in his lab upstairs for lucky punters to enjoy in the speakeasy bar downstairs!
  • An intimate space in which to enjoy pristine cocktails mixed with quiet ceremony by the elegantly bow-tied owner, Tony Conigliaro.
  • Good dry martinis. And the meat & cheese platter looks great too. Yum.
  • I strongly disagree with my wife's tip. Cocktails are superb, atmosphere is a soup dolce vita Italian 60' style. Bar tenders are professionals. The music selection is stellar. Will file for a divorce.
  • Great cocktails, but if you show up without a reservation they'll seat you on the stairs of shame. They usually find you a table after about 15 mins in my experience, provided its not too busy.
  • Amazing drinks, and live jazz on Sunday nights makes it the perfect way to end the week.
  • Its a struggle to find, but when you see a lantern above a door you'll know youre in the right place.
  • Try the "dry" martini, which adds a distillation of dry essence to Beefeater gin & Martini Extra Dry vermouth & The Spitfire, a blend of their house cognac along with other ingredients.
  • Brilliant atmosphere. It feels like you've stepped into a proper speakeasy. Excellent service and brilliant cocktails.
  • Order the Avignon. Inhale deeply, then take a sip and hold it on your tongue for a while. Lovely drink.
  • Mega Mixologist Tony uses a horseradish vodka, his very own homemade pepper sauce and some pepper distillate (whatever that is) and boy does it work.
  • Aperol galore! Book a table or a spot at the bar and work through the Dirty Martini and of course the Liquorice Whisky Sour! Favourite bar in town.
  • "Always worth a visit for their commitment to cocktails."
  • It's a Sazerac or nothing.
  • Nice place but plain rude staff
  • Have an Old Fashioned (with rye not whisky).
  • Make a booking or you'll end up drinking your delicious cocktail on the stairs. Don't worry; you'll have a great view of the pianist.
  • No booking? Grab a seat on the stairs and tap your toes to the ragtime until a table opens up.
  • Really good dry martinis
