After finding the DSC (not easy for first-timers), descend the steep stairs and watch your head so you don’t bump it on the incredibly low ceilings. The effort is worth it: DSC may look like just another wood-heavy, dimly atmospheric London ‘speakeasy’, but in quality it’s made-to-measure rather than prêt-à-porter. What marks it out is profound and polished skill behind the bar: we’ve watched a single bartender manage three large orders at once, doing everything in the right order and not wasting a second. The changing cocktail list can sound wacky (Captain Cobbler is dark rum, amontillado sherry, kumquat, ginger and honey marmalade, pink grapefruit and IPA top), but in our experience here wacky always equals wonderful. Ordering off-list is always a safe bet. Gents in suits love it. So do those wearing denim, ink and facial hair. One size definitely fits all here.

Totally love this place! It's a bar nicely tucked away at a clothing shop on the edge of the city where you can see the Gherkin building around the corner. Once you find it and make it down the dark steep stairs, it is like walking into someone's basement party. There is music played from where the DJ sits in a corner at the bar. What I love about this place is that people who work here actually look like they enjoy being there. The simple cocktail list has enough variety for something to suit everyone's taste. On a Sat evening, there seems to a lot of locals on a night out or quick drinks before partying. The only thing I would watch is the ceiling height if you were a tall person.

Love this place!  If you can get one of the sofas in the corner it is a perfect place to people watch, have some cocktails and start your evening off right!
