Cocktail of the Month 2-4-£18 (All Day) and 3 other offers

Located in the very heart of Spitalfields, Merchant & Weaver is promising some of the best eats, from a butternut squash stew to grilled rock oysters and turkey adobo tacos. Pair your meal with a wide selection of wine on offer and a cute terrace for both summer and winter months. Brunch at the weekends? They have that too.

The Mayor Of Scaredy Cat Town

Due to its popularity, speakeasy-style cocktail bar The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town, is now one of the worst kept secrets in London, but it's still one of the best bars in Spitalfields Market. Hidden beneath the Breakfast Club on Artillery Lane, you enter through a fridge door and head down into a swinging throwback to the 1920s, serving prohibition style cocktails and laced fruit punches. It's fun, quirky and definitely cool. Just tell them you're there to see the Mayor!

Dirty Martini Bishopsgate

“Spirited sophistication” is the vibe at Dirty Martini, an elegant cocktail bar just down the road in Bishopsgate. The signature martinis are a must-try, happy hour discounts run well into the evening and DJs play a mix of commercial tracks and classic party hits until late. A sleek basement venue well-suited to a girls night out in Spitalfields.
