A classic cocktail bar heavy on the class and light on the frou frou

Liquid nitrogen in cocktails: it’s a party trick that, thankfully, has gone the way of the marrow shot, the spherification kit and the lychee. That’s not to say N2 doesn’t have its uses. For instance, it makes glasses extremely cold. And here at this classic cocktail bar, they keep a big old canister of the stuff for this very reason. It’s about the only modern touch in a bar that, as a rule, trades in straight drinks served with plenty of class and very little pomp. That could be the Domo Arigato - a full-bodied and nicely balanced shake-up of yuzu, Japanese whisky, spiced sugar syrup and two types of bitters. Or maybe it’s the Royal Cocktail - a riff on the 1930s classic of gin, dry vermouth and cherry brandy that’s altogether unctuous and musky. And the best bit? The team are super nice on top of being super talented.
