The Shrubbery


The Russet brings a creative cocktail brain to the heart of Hackney, The Shrubbery. Not caring so much about sleek lines and modern designs, they have gone for more of a homely, welcoming feel; creating a space where an old apothecary meets green house, meets garden shed! 

This quirky cocktail bar has an emphasis on drinks created with homemade and sustainably sourced ingredients. Their mission is for everything to be focused on creativity and experimentation; a flexible place where nothing is set in stone, kept ever changing by being open to new things. In other words, it is a 'laboratory where flavour wizards create concoctions that make your taste buds turn and kiss each other'!
