Simmons Liverpool Street
The Liverpool Street branch of the cocktail bar chain continues in a similar vein to the other branches - the gaudy decor bathes everything in a neon red hue, which you should get used to after one of their five-hour-long happy hour sessions. Cocktails are served up in teacups and come with names like names like sex with a lad, sloe sailor and bikini martini. Enough pop anthems (and shots) might have you dancing under the skull disco ball – a bit of decoration that inspired the mirror ball cocktail: a blend of gin, lemon juice, elderflower and soda water. If you prefer beer? There’s the usual selection of bottled beers and London lagers on tap.
