A popular Shoreditch cocktail bar from the team behind Les Trois Garcons, right around the corner. Those familiar with the restaurant will recognise a similar approach to the decor here - an intriguingly mismatched hotchpotch of tapestries, taxidermy, oriental vases and diagrams offering anatomical insights from yesteryear.  

Cocktails are the real draw here. Classics feature, but the drinks list focuses on signature creations such as the Loungelover (Loungelover fig liqueur, sweet vanilla and lemon oil with Champagne) and contemporary drops like the Black Diamond Sour (Disaronno with blackberries, lime and violet liqueur, served over crushed ice). Keep an eye out for early-evening cocktail offers throughout the week. 

A short food menu comprises small plates such as grilled chicken skewers, battered squid with cumin, red chilli and lime, pulled pork brioche buns and a beetroot and goat's cheese salad. There's a canape menu too, which proves popular with those taking advantage of the private hire.
