The Cocktail Trading Co's first site is one of the most innovative watering holes in the West End, and now there's a second bar to enjoy in Smithfield Market.

Lifelong bartenders Olly Brading, Andy Mil and Elliot Ball are back, this time bringing their kooky cocktail bar concept to the basement space below Ask For Janice. The 50-capacity space comes fitted with fine fabrics and rustic features, and guests are invited to swap their antiques and knicknacks for cocktails in a nod to the area’s marketplace ties.

What of the cocktails, though? Expect a typically playful and creative list featuring Hops Buttered Bun (Bols Genever, raisin, nutmeg, spiced-butter syrup, wheat beer and lime juice) and the Citizen Cane (Cachaca, rosebud tincture, cadamom, vanilla, lime juice and sauvignon blanc), as well as a high-quality choice of non-alcoholic mocktails.

Best cocktails, music, vibe and people. Sacha made me the best Maithai and Steve rocked out. Hard to choose between the this and Shoreditch branch - 1st world problems I'm happy to deal with

The Cocktail Trading Co. is hidden away under Ask for Janice on Long Lane. My friend and I went for an after-work cocktail. I went for a creamy cocktail which came with a home-made chocolate and my friend with a traditional old-fashioned. The bartenders were very friendly and offered to make us any cocktail we wanted, even if it wasn't on the menu. The bar is quite quirkly/hipstery decorated and with the addition of some old-time music it was very cosy. Definitely on my list to return back.
