The main focus of this Kingsland Road spot is cocktails – served from early evening until the wee hours. During the day it's a swanky-looking café, offering simple breakfasts followed by Mediterranean small plates throughout the rest of the day. The cocktail list ranges from classics to house creations. Options include a black sea (vodka, mint, blackberries, cranberry juice, olive oil and lemon, served with squid ink seaweed and salmon roe) a salted almond (Abelha cachaca, kombucha, orgeat syrup, lemon juice, celery bitters and salt) and the supreme expression – a glass of Havana Maximo served with a Cohiba Cuban cigar and caviar. Keep an eye out for special events and cocktail masterclasses, too.
