What we say:

XOXO brings a more modern and stylish take on the cocktail bar lounge experience in Angel and also boasts a mouth-watering selection of Thai dishes from the restaurant. The queen scallops lightly steamed with a coriander and soy dressing, and soft shell crab seasoned with mango salad look particularly delicious and can be washed down with some crafted cocktails that include the Rubbies and Diamonds (Tanqueray Gin, Chambord, raspberry puree, cranberry and lime juice) and Porn Starr Martini. Come here for a date night during the week for a relaxed yet classy cocktail bar setting and then things step it up a bit at the weekend with a lively and loud atmosphere, DJs catering for the party crowd of Upper Street. With plenty of booths and tables to be booked as well as full private hire, this is a perfect Angel bar for a celebration.
