Barsmith is a cutting edge concept bar in Farringdon - smack bang in the middle of London.

The concept at the heart of this new venue isn't anything too fancy or avante garde though; its unique selling point is just darned good drinks, all priced at the very reasonable £8.95. We aren't talking Woo Woos or Sex on the Beaches though either; Barsmith serves a capsule collection of fresh, creative cocktails to their customers, all made from delicious spirits fused in house and served in eccentric vessels.

We've heard there might even be a bit of dry ice involved. Head down to explore their delightfully surprising menu, as well as a fresh Italian food menu, and refreshing interiors.

A go-to bar if you're looking to root out great value, great tasting cocktails in the heart of the City.
