4 out of 5 stars

Please note, Oskar's Bar is now closed. Time Out London Food & Drink Editors, Aug 2017.

If you love to adulterate the sophistication of cocktail hour with a cringeworthy pun, Oskar’s is the place for you. How about a ‘Rye, Rye, Rye Delilah’, with White Rhino Alpine rye, wine, pine and lemon? Or the frankly unconscionable ‘Statutory Grape’: cachaça, lovage, lime and condensed milk? As you can see, linguistic egregiousness aside, there is some impressive inventiveness and technical skill at work here. Try the beer- and cider-based drinks, in frosted, dimpled mugs. A ‘Burt Reynolds’ has a warming punch of Johnnie Walker black and bitters cut with Wyld Wood cider, while the ‘Drink with No Name’ is the perfect autumn warmer, with ginger ale and apple-and-greengage liqueur lengthening a bourbon base. The dim industrial space beneath Dabbous perhaps isn’t the most intimate: there aren’t many corners to get all romantic, but we’re all about the drinking: you can neck anywhere.
