A weird and wonderful cocktail bar on Mare Street located above The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art and Natural History. Expect oddities, bones and books in a nod to downstairs, as well as a gallery space and a full-sized taxidermied lion named Leonora at one of the tables.
Inspired by the prohibiton era, TLTS have a menu devoted to Absinthe, as well as two pages of cocktails and a handful of beers and wines. Bar nibbles include a cheese board, kalamata tapenade and roasted cashews.
Regular events are held here, too, including workshops in taxidermy or cocktails, lectures, literary launches and more.
With a rotating menu of eclectic cocktails inspired by the Prohibition era speakeasy classics and a full range of traditional Absinthe inspired by recipes dating back a century old, it is easy to lose one's self in the alternative world that is The Last Tuesday Society.
Sip on a cocktail with their top hat wearing taxidermy lioness (named Leonora!) Or visit for their monthly petting zoo filled with boas and pythons and bullfrogs, galore. Sample from their edible insect platter if feeling inspired. And join them every Tuesday for their programme of events, lectures, tastings and Last Tuesday parties.

Absolutely loved this place! The atmosphere, museum, and not to mention the cocktails were all amazing! Most unique bar I've ever been to. Can't wait to go back.
Always feel so welcome in this cosy little bar on Mare Street - big ups whoever decided coffee infused campari / peanut butter whiskey was a thing <3
This place is wavy, they do the best cocktails in hackney, particularly the bartender who always wears a hat he is fit
Weird and unique would be not enough to describe this absolutely fantastic bar in the heart of East London. Definitely one of my favourites in the hole area. It's definitely not only the uniqueness of the decoration and the intimate vibe that makes it so special, but without a doubt, their always eclectic cocktails and drinks menu together with a very friendly and excellent service. Being a regular customer and a cocktail bartender myself I can also say they put effort and interest in changing the menu and adding new spirits regularly, which only shows the dedication and creativity of the team. Well done and keep up the good work! See you very soon!
I had my 21st birthday party at Victor Wynd's Museum of Curiosities and it was so much more than I could have imagined, and that was all thanks to Ali and her team! The table decorations looked really good and the staff were all so friendly :)
My friends and I had a great time and I keep receiving messages from them about how much they loved the museum.
I also want to thank Ali for recommending the Indian restaurant Tiffin Tin as everything on the buffet was delicious and it catered to my friends nut allergies and the vegetarians abundantly. The cocktails were really yummy and the staff were happy to give recommendations. After we finished eating the staff cleaned up everything for us, there was nothing they wouldn't do to make the evening perfect.
The petting zoo was unbelievable and my friends clearly enjoyed it, everyone held an animal, even the ones who were scared!
I can't wait to come visit again!
Cool place but it markets itself as a cocktail bar and when we went it said they were out of cocktails. Grossly understaffed. Different and cool venue but the poor service means I will never go again.
Love, Love, Love this bar.
Somewhere between brilliant and bonkers
Serves awesome cocktails, but if you get bored you can pay a fiver and go downstairs to visit the museum of curiosities.
Its halfway between Bethnal Green and Hackney
If you want to try a GREAT cocktail bar crawl try this for size - in order as they are all close.
