Foursquare Tips

  • Whitechapel is definitely a shrine to gin. With over 400 types of the spirit on the menu and 120 cocktails that include it, the steampunky bar will certainly be a calling card for all gin lovers.
  • Beautiful interior. Ask for a recommendation from savvy bar tenders. Or, trust me and try The Claridge Cocktail.
  • Order the gin drinks. actually order the lamplighter and the hippie wallbanger.
  • This place may be peak San Francisco. Try not to gag at the wannabe-nerd angel investor holding court while munching on your overpriced fish and chip (yes, those nouns are singular).
  • London underground filtered through Prague stag night
  • S bengol wipechembo wibVin2loo
  • Ask for the full menu, skip to the back and order a vintage cocktail to understand the history. From the people that brought you the erudite Smuggler's Cove, this time it's steampunk and gin.
  • The Veggie poutine is spicy and delicious. Not a fan of gin, but their salty dog can do no wrong.
  • The food is Bangladeshi-inspired pub fare, like mussels vindaloo and pakoras with spicy lime pickle, Asian pear and lassi bubbles.
  • Drinks are a tad sweet, but other than that, very good! Interior is beautiful- go to the back area for less yelling and less waiting for a drink.
  • Gawdy interior. Do not get a gin flight unless you know you enjoy the taste of straight gin. Probably won't go out of my way to come here again but cucumber lavender sour cocktail is fantastic.
  • Delicious gin drinks -- ask for a full menu -- in a beautiful venue. Gets crowded and drinks are pricey -- $13 -- but worth visiting and a cool option for a group
  • Get the house G&T on tap. Perfectly balanced with their house tonic.
  • Great drinks if you love gin. Be prepared to wait for drinks...like a long time...and just when you think you're getting your drink, it'll be going to another table.
  • Gin-based cocktail bar. Good atmosphere. Great if you like Gin. Not as great if you dont.
  • Great cocktails and cool atmosphere. Annoying they don't have much area for standing and tables get booked beforehand.
  • Delicious gin based cocktails in gorgeous room that feels like an old subway station. Don't skip the food options -- we loved the masala wings.
  • This Underground-themed bar was pandering a bit to this public transit enthusiast, but I can vouch that they have some darn good naan & cheese too.
  • Happy hour 5pm to 7pm.
  • This place is known for gin, but you have to go to page 15 on the menu & read between the lines to get a list. Also, all their house cocktails use major brands or #209. That + poor music choice =
