Clerkenwell & Social Marylebone Leisure Group announces second Clerkenwell cocktail bar
2-5 St John's Square, London, EC1M 4DE
Happily Affordable ££

What they say:

Clerkenwell & Social pays homage to the area’s proud literary traditions, kitting its two floors out with quirks and oddities to recognised its history. Vibes are chilled, with guests bonding over a pizza and cocktails using homemade bitters and syrups. Live Jazz creates a soothing Thirsty Thursday atmosphere, and there’s DJs on call to do their thing at the end of the week.

What we say:

At between £8 and £12 for a hand-crafted pizza, value for money is assured at this laidback new hangout. Workers pour through the doors at quitting time to lap up those Happy Hour discounts (available until 8pm), and the venue’s spacious outdoor terrace is ideal private hire property for groups of up to 100.
