What they say:

Tucked away beneath the JQ’s Upstairs Coffee House is a refined new drinking den made for enjoying lush cocktails in elusive surroundings. Stripped-back furniture, candlelit vibes and an unmistakable sense of secrecy characterise the Upstairs Downstairs Cocktail Bar, where a table-service policy is in place to allow you to sit back and savour the atmosphere.

What we say:

From the moment a stately French chandelier beckons you downstairs, you’ll get a sense of the exclusive and refined feel to this new hidden gem. With artistic cocktails and plenty of creative touches included (menus come typed up on Pick Your Poison bookmarks), this is a fun and inventive new basement watering hole that you absolutely need to discover.
